Qareen was a spiritual entity with the ability to inhabit the bodies of the deceased. He was the head of the Saudi Arabian intelligence agency, the GIP. His subordinate, Fiqh made a deal with Cable and X-Force via arranging for Qareen's murder in exchange for some information Cable needed. Cable and X-Force succeeded in killing Qareen.[1]


Qareen has the ability to possess the bodies of both living and dead beings. He is indestructible, unless the vessel he is possessing is destroyed with him still in it.[1]

In Arabic folklore, every person has a "qareen", an evil spirit that pushes them to do evil. The qareen are Jinn, spiritual creatures made of smokeless fire with the ability to posses humans.
