An animal-headed jinni labeled al-ghidar ('the liar, the perfidious'), and a horned harpy. From a copy of ‘Ajā’ib al-makhlūqāt wa-gharā’ib al-mawjūdāt (Marvels of Things Created and Miraculous Aspects of Things Existing) by al-Qazwīnī

Ghaddar (Arabic: غدار) is a type of evil and ugly looking jinn from the deserts of the Red Sea countries. They took the form of giant humans and tortured people of whom they then abandoned in a remote desert. It catches travelers and tortures them by devouring their genitals. It is said that they were the offspring of Iblis and his wife; they came from an egg which may have been the cosmic egg.
