List of Bartimaeus Characters - Spirits - Other Named Spirits

Other Named Spirits

  • Affa was a djinni in service to Ptolemy who advised him on how to enter the Other Place in Ptolemy's Gate. He was killed by Roman spirits while trying to protect his beloved master.
  • Ammet was a powerful spirit mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate. In the recent trilogy prequel, he is revealed to be a marid in the service of one of Solomon's magicians. Unusually among spirits, he served his master Khaba willingly as they shared the same interests and desires. In the end he is imprisoned in a wine jar by Bartimaeus and sent to the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. While undeniably evil, it is arguable that the relationship between Ammet and Khaba is similar to the one that Bartimaeus would forge with Ptolemy centuries later.
  • Ascobol was a greater djinni in service to Mr Mandrake. He was prone to sarcasm, and young by spirit terms. He only appeared in Ptolemy's Gate where he was killed by Faquarl. He normally appeared as a Cyclops. He had also served in India.
  • Asmoral was a djinni who was spoken of in The Amulet of Samarkand. He was torn in two after refusing to follow his master's command to destroy Ianna. The explosion destroyed not only him, but his master and several residential areas near Baghdad; it is for this that he is also known as the "Resolute".
  • Atlas was a marid in service to Phidias, who was mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate. He had unusual strength and muscular definition, and was given the task to construct the Parthenon. When the foundation was proven faulty, Atlas was charged to hold up the building indefinitely.
  • Baztuk was an utukku who Bartimaeus called 'Bull-head" who appeared in the Amulet of Samarkand and fought Bartimaeus in the Battle of Al-Arish, was in service to the Khmer empire, and was also a sentry in the Tower of London. It was here that he was killed by Faquarl.
  • Belazael who was apparently in service to Mr Mandrake. It is unknown if he is real or not, or if he ever served Mandrake, though it is possible that this is the name of the imp in his scrying glass. His name was shouted out by Mandrake when trying to trick Verroq in Ptolemy's Gate.
  • Bertilak was a djinni in Mr Makepeace's play The Swans of Araby, appearing in The Golem's Eye. In it, he was the star of the play and his character fell in love with a human female. Given he appeared in the play he was presumably fictional and played by an actor.
  • Bodmin was an imp who was killed in the Thirty Years' War. Bartimaeus posed as him in The Amulet of Samarkand, suggesting he knew Bodmin.
  • Bolib was one of the hybrids in Ptolemy's Gate (possibly the hybrid in Mr Devereaux) who was killed by Mandrake and Bartimaeus.
  • Borello was forced into Mr Drew's body by Mr Makepeace in Ptolemy's Gate and was killed by Mandrake and Bartimaeus.
  • Castor was a djinni in service to Mr Mandrake who was mentioned in the Golem's Eye. He was an efficient spirit who possessed a fiery pride, and was dismissed after stabbing an imp with a shish-kebab skewer.
  • Clovis was a foliot in service to Mr Mandrake in the Golem's Eye, and was one of two foliots Mandrake uses as "orphan children" to infiltrate the Resistance, though he once forgot to remove his tail.
  • Cormocodran was third-level djinni in service to Mr Mandrake who appeared in Ptolemy's Gate. He usually looked like a man-boar and had no sense of humor, and was ultimately killed by Faquarl.
  • Frisp was a one of two foliots mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate who found Bartimaeus guarding a catacomb in Rome after the Barbarian Invasion and misinterpreted why he was there, telling imps that he was avoiding conflict in it and was killed (surely by Bartimaeus ) for it.
  • Fritang was lesser djinni in service to Mr Mandrake in Ptolemy's Gate, who was once discovered by children with Resilience while acting as a spy on the docks.
  • Gaspar was the spirit who entered Mr Lime's body in Ptolemy's Gate, and was killed by Mandrake and Bartimaeus.
  • Hathor was the goddess of love, divine mother and protector of the newborn in the Ancient Egyptian religion.
  • Hibbet was one of seven imp sentries during the Golem Affair mentioned in the Golem's Eye who was killed by Honorius.
  • Hodge was a very powerful greater djinni in service to Mr Mandrake who appeared in Ptolemy's Gate and was killed by Faquarl.
  • Hoepo was a powerful spirit that supposedly swallowed himself whole, in lieu of fighting Bartimaeus who was mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate (though this was most likely empty bluster). He went under the guise of the "Thunder Snake".
  • Honorius was a ninth-level afrit in service to Mr Gladstone in the Golem's Eye who was charged to fight in the Siege of Prague, guard Gladstone's treasures for eternity and kill anyone who broke into the tomb: he failed the latter two of these. Honorius killed four out of six of the Resistance members and six magicians who tried do steal the treasures not long after Gladstone's death, only Kitty and Nick managed to escape him. He was unique in that he didn't have his own form on Earth; instead, he encased himself in Gladstone's bones, which cured the pain of an extended stay on Earth, but seems also to have driven him mad. In his desperation to be free of Earth he attacks Mr. Duvall's Golem and is destroyed.
  • Humbaba was a monstrous giant and the guardian of the Forest of Cedars in Akkadian mythology, who was mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate. Under Gilgamesh's orders, Bartimaeus distracted the dim-witted giant and slew him.
  • Humphrey was one of nine djinn to help build one of the most noble buildings in Prague, the Stone Bridge, in a single night, who had the "honour" of being the usual sacrifice of the indefinitely entombed djinn, when they drew straws at dawn. The other eight gave him a pack of cards to pass the time. He was mentioned in the Golem's Eye.
  • Ianna was a djinni mentioned in the Amulet of Samarkand. She fell in love with Asmoral the Resolute, who then died for her.
  • Karloum was a djinni mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate, and first recorded in Ethiopia. Mandrake pretended to be debating between wanting to summon Zosa or Karloum into his body, and Makepeace said that they were "modest choices" but recommended Karloum.
  • Koh was a powerful spirit killed by Bartimaeus and was mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate.
  • Methys was a djinni in service to Ptolemy who was killed by Roman spirits in Ptolemy's Gate while attempting to protect his beloved master.
  • Mormel was an afrit who was mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate, and was chosen by Faquarl for Ms Whitwell to be her hybrid; he was most likely given to the magician next in line, in which case, he was killed by Mandrake and Bartimaeus.
  • Mwamba was a greater djinni in service to Mr Mandrake who usually took the form of a giant lizard wearing leather thigh boots in Ptolemy's Gate. She was one of the friendlier djinn in Mandrake's service, and didn't tease Bartimaeus for his decline. She formerly served under the Abaluyia tribes of Eastern Africa and was eventually killed by Faquarl.
  • Naeryan was an afrit who took part in the Spirit Revolt and was killed by Mandrake and Bartimaeus in Ptolemy's Gate. She is unique in the fact that her character was adapted from the story made by Catrina Doxsee, who won the Bartimaeus Fantasy Writing Contest. Her true form consists of an indigo blue-black torso, three sharp eyes, and many spider-like limbs; she was a former ally of Bartimaeus.
  • Nemaides was a djinni in service to Mr Tallow who was charged to inflict the Black Tumbler upon Jakob and Kitty after they accidentally damaged Tallow's Rolls Royce in The Golem's Eye. He, for unknown reasons, takes the form of a green monkey.
  • Nittles was a foul-mouthed messenger imp in service to Mr Lovelace in the Amulet of Samarkand whom Bartimaeus literally squeezes information about Mr Lovelace out of.
  • Nubbin was a lesser djinni who was first summoned and served as a sentry during the Siege of Prague and it was there that he was presumably killed. He appeared in the Golem's Eye. He took the form of a frog. A 'nubbin' is something that is small and deformed.
  • Paimose was the name of a spirit Ms Jones found while looking in a demonology volume researching Bartimaeus in Ptolemy's Gate.
  • Pairi was the name of a spirit Ms Jones found in a demonology volume while researching Bartimaeus in Ptolemy's Gate.
  • Patterknife was an afrit in service to Mr Gladstone in the Golem's Eye who fought in the Siege of Prague. He was possibly the afrit who fought Queezle and was killed by a golem or the afrit who led the assault on the Czech Emperor and battle Bartimaeus. Used a silver scythe in battle.
  • Penrenutet was a djinni in service to Ptolemy in Ptolemy's Gate who was killed by Roman spirits in an effort to protect his beloved master.
  • Phoebus was an afrit in service to Chief Minister Hans Meyrink of the Czech Empire who was mentioned in the Golem's Eye and killed before the Siege Of Prague.
  • Pollux was one of two foliots who found Bartimaeus guarding a catacomb in Rome after the Barbarian Invasion, and misinterpreted why he was there, telling imps that he was avoiding conflict in it, and was killed by Bartimaeus for it and was mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate. May have had some history with Castor.
  • Purip was a lesser djinni in service to Mr Mandrake in Ptolemy's Gate who was one of the first to suggest a Commoners' Revolutionary War on top all of the other Revolutionary Wars.
  • Queezle was a female djinni in service to Mr Ffoukes who appeared in the Golem's Eye. She is an extremely close friend of Bartimaeus; the two seeming to have a "deep relationship"; and their relationship went at least back to Prague, where she and Bartimaeus fought together, and was around 1500 years old. Her first master was a Jordanian hermit who lived in the desert and her second was a French magician; neither of them had used punishments on Queezle, and Bartimaeus noted that she had been lucky with her masters. Between Prague and London she had served masters in China and Ceylon. She was killed during the Golem Affair by the golem itself.
  • Ra was the god of the sun in the Ancient Egyptian religion.
  • Ramose was a spirit whose name was seen by Ms Jones in a demonology volume while researching Bartimaeus in Ptolemy's Gate.
  • Rekhyt was an afrit in service to Sneferu who had a legendary vicious temperament, and was killed at Khartoum. His name was seen by Ms Jones in a demonology volume while researching Bartimaeus in Ptolemy's Gate.
  • Rekhyt was a djinni with a by-name of Quishog, the Guardian of the Necropolis of Thebes who appropriately had morbid tendencies. His name was seen by Ms Jones in a demonology volume while researching Bartimaeus in Ptolemy's Gate.
  • Shubit was an afrit in service to Ms Whitwell who appeared in all three volumes of the series. He broke his ties with her when she was killed and favoured the form of a bear. When going into direct battle, his claws would become nearly as long as scimitars. He was noted for his efficiency and also his humbleness and politeness, for instance, he takes his cap off when he addresses Ms Whitwell.
  • Simpkin was a foliot in service to Mr Pinn who appeared in the first two volumes of the series and was one of the few spirits who actually enjoyed his servitude and was therefore regarded by others with hatred and contempt. He favoured the form of a small boy on the first plane, but was actually small and lime-green, with a bow-legged walk and a head that changes colour and size to show his emotions. He was killed by the golem during the Golem Affair, and though he had a chance to escape through a window, his compulsion to protect the store lead him to go against his instincts and attack his indestructible enemy. Bartimaeus was genuinely disappointed to learn of Simpkin's death, as he himself had wanted to kill Simpkin after they fought in the Amulet of Samarkand.
  • Sophocles was a foliot in service to Mr Mandrake who appeared in the Golem's Eye and helped keep Mr Hyrnek in check while Mandrake goaded Jones into giving him the Staff, though when Mandrake gave the order to kill Hyrnek, Jones reacted by killing Sophocles instead.
  • Tchue was a clever, fourth-level afrit famed for his wit (a rarity among Afrits) who fought Bartimaeus in an epic battle and was mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate (though this is most likely an empty boast he likely did know Tchue given that he references him a few times).
  • Teti was a djinni in service to Ptolemy who appeared in Ptolemy's Gate and killed by Roman spirits with his colleagues while trying to protect his beloved master.
  • Tibbet was one of seven imp sentries during the Golem Affair who appeared in the Golem's Eye.
  • Tlaloc once fought Bartimaeus in an epic battle and was mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate. However, this is likely to be bluster from Bartimaeus.
  • Truklet was an imp in service to Mr Jenkins in Ptolemy's Gate who was eaten by Bartimaeus while trying to expose him during the Spirit Revolt.
  • Xerxes was an utukku that Bartimaeus called 'Eagle-beak" and a sentry in the Tower of London, where he was killed by Jabor in the Amulet of Samarkand. He is apparently younger than Baztuk or simply does not remember Bartimaeus.
  • Yole was a spirit in service to Ms Farrar who appeared in Ptolemy's Gate as in a scrying glass, where he showed Farrar and Mandrake his spying on Jenkins, however his angle was poor and was duly punished by Farrar enough to make him quiver when he spoke with her.
  • Zeno was a djinni who bravely flew straight to the National Gallery to fight the golem during the Golem Affair in the Golem's Eye and was promptly killed by it.
  • Zosa was a djinni mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate, and first recorded in Ethiopia. Mandrake pretended to be debating between wanting to summon Zosa or Karloum into his body, and Makepeace said that they were "modest choices" but recommended Karloum.

Famous quotes containing the words spirits and/or named:

    the sacred few who could not tame
    Their spirits to the conquerors—
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    We named you Joy.
    I, who was never quite sure
    about being a girl, needed another
    life, another image to remind me.
    And this was my worst guilt; you could not cure
    nor soothe it. I made you to find me.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
