The Devī Kavacham (from Durgā Saptaśhati) protects us from Sahajā, Kulajā, Mālā, Ḍākinī, Śhākinī.

सहजा कुलजा माला डाकिनी शाकिनी तथा।
अन्तरिक्षचरा घोरा डाकिन्यश्‍च महाबलाः ॥ ५०॥

Sahajā Kulajā Mālā Ḍākinī Śhākinī Tathā
Antarikṣacarā Ghorā Ḍākinyaśca Mahābalāḥ ॥ 50॥

Who are these creatures / entities?

  • They are not deities,apparently,I’ve posted an answer below,that states otherwise.
