Ifrits or afreets (in Danusia Stok's translation of The Last Wish) are genies from the Plane of Fire. When summoned, they generally do not grant wishes, unless the summoning party wishes to die or to have someone killed. These creatures are undoubtedly intelligent, but mortals can not penetrate their minds. That is just as well, because their visions of an all-encompassing inferno would most certainly drive any human mad.

— page 251, The Last Wish (UK edition)
"An ifrit is a minor genie of fire, or, as some say, an elemental. It does not fulfill wishes, build palaces or make anyone rich, but it serves mages who research the element of fire if they can force the creature to be obedient.
Ifrits can only be captured by a mage who intimately understands the nature of flames and has devoted himself completely to learning their secret. The creatures, with their connection to the element of fire, will judge their summoner and, if they find him worthy, will loyally serve him in all matters."

- In Chapter V, among the wounded on the streets of Old Vizima, there are female human "Nurse"s and/or elven "Paramedic"s. Sometimes Geralt can speak with them and they will ask for something. In return, any one of them will tell Geralt about Ifrits.
- In the Prologue, Lambert claims silver is best to use against "genies," but the conversation does not result in a bestiary entry for Ifrits, the only genies in the game.
- Also called Omen of Fire.
