Genieya's Father (ジニヤーのパパ Jiniyā no Papa) is the ruler of the Akuma of Arabia.



As a demon king, he has authority over demons and monsters in the region.

He is a noble ruler and is a polite and humble individual, and he can bow to apologize and thank to benefactors. He deeply cares for Genieya, but had difficulties in handling his daughter largely due to her nature. While he often scolds Genieya, he went rampage on Kitarō by hearing Genieya's claim that all she did was for the sake of the demon king but Kitarō troubles and bullies her. He instantly stopped attacking and showed respect to Kitarō as the latter saved Genieya, and spoke with an honorific manner, adding an honorific title to Kitarō.

Because he dislikes war, his violent minions who are fond of manipulating and triggering human wars are under his control. When he had a health issue, those demons and monsters went wild and caused havoc once again which his daughter described as their "playful pranks".

After becoming calm, the demon king soon recognized Kitarō and noted that he is famous overseas as well.



He appeared in the Witch Genieya.

As Genieya stole her father's spirit tobacco and traveled to Japan, he tracked her to the nation. Seeing his daughter fighting against Kitarō, he asked Genieya about the situation and she made up the story, he thought Kitarō was an enemy and attacked him, but his own beam was reflected on the windows of a building to him, resulting in his own loss. Later, he was cured at the Yōkai Hospital on Mount Osore and backed to the home with his daughter.

He then noticed his daughter and the ring missing and came to Japan. As Genieya told him that Kitarō bullies her and prevents her from what she was doing for her father, the demon king was enraged and attacked Kitarō, however, his own attack caused Genieya to be shocked on an electric wire and fell off, however, Kitarō saved her and the king calmed.
