Named Marid

Known Marid

Vox Machina

While on their voyage towards Vesrah, as to complete the last leg of Keyleth's Aramenté, Vox Machina encountered a marid which attacked their ship. Taryon killed this marid.

Mighty Nein

During the process of trying to get Algar Dyomin to leave Jester's Mother alone, the Mighty Nein entered into the Sluice Weave under Nicodranas. There, under the enslaved command of Algar, the party did battle with Zsundi, until eventually Fjord cut off Algar's hand, thus severing the bound connection. With Zsundi now free he retrieved the bracelet by which he was enslaved and parted ways with the Mighty Nein on friendly terms, before going off to free his other fellow marid in Port Damali.
