In 1640 DE, the primordial Kossuth created the first batch of efreet. He did this by using the fiery energies of Chaos along with life energy sucked up by the Life Fan.

In the Creation War, the efreet served the primordials as tacticians, advisors, generals, and in other positions of influence and prestige. Since efreet are most commonly neutral in alignment, like their creator, those that fought in the Creation War often found themselves in positions where their morality would be tested - especially when serving under the more wicked primordials. Those that lacked the will to stay the path became a sub-type of efreet called the Furrouth. The Furrouth became chaotic evil. After the Creation War, they were rounded up by Covenant forces and put to work on the Endless Wall. Over decades, emanations of Law from this wall changed their morality from chaotic to lawful. Once they had become lawful, they were released from imprisonment. Many of these lawful evil efreet worship Surtur.

Tens of thousands of the more common neutrally aligned efreeti live on Bal-Kriav. Those in Gludragh are descendants of mercenary groups that once served the various houses of the City of Brass. They came to Bal-Kriav on orders of the efreeti overlord As'gom Ygathac. He sent them here to recover a hundred or so escaped djinn - a group that came to be known as the Nitthirân. After the assassination of As'gom Ygathac, a few efreet houses decided to stake a claim on Bal-Kriav. They have sought to exploit the lands and peoples when possible and set-up trade with those equal or more powerful than themselves. The Nitthirân have continued to oppose efreet machinations, never forgiving them for the suffering of their ancestors. Another large group of efreet are in the Underdark region Maenedhel. Those in the city Belfdagny are descendants of an army that served Kossuth in the Demon Spawn War.

Many of the efreet that live permanently on Bal-Kriav are no longer classified as outsiders. They have lived on this mortal world for so long, that with each successive generation their connection to Chaos has weakened to the point that most are now considered a mortal.
