The Genie (sometimes referred to as "The Voice of God") is a fictional figure.
The Genie is a mysterious entity, who makes no appearance. His voice is very deep and grave, and whispers now and again to relay information to the player or encourage them. He acts similar to an advisor, giving instructions for the player in certain situations, as well as for common functions in the "custom skirmish" menu. Witty and cold, the Genie is truly a memorable figure.
The Genie is featured first in Stronghold Crusader. His role is partially taken over by the voice of the engineer in Stronghold Legends, and relegated solely to announcing the leaderboard status of the player in Stronghold Crusader 2. His voice is different from Crusader, being more echoing and loud, while having lost the characteristic cold tone.
