"Mazikeen" is a term from Judaism describing a certain type of ancient faerie. In the time of Adam and Eve, after their expulsion from the Garden of Eden, spirits came and copulated with Adam and Eve separately, spawning strange creatures that were half angel and half human. They were the mazikeen, and though they can do some otherworldly things such as predicting the future, shapeshifting, and flying with their little wings, they also like mortal pastimes such as food and drink, festivities, and actually mating with humans. They are also known in Hebrew literature as shideem or shehireem.
