The dabus were a race unique to Sigil and were the personal entourage of the Lady of Pain.[1]


Dabus are humanoids with white hair, goat-like horns, and yellow-tan skin. They floated inches above the ground, their feet never touching the earth.[2]

The dabus spoke only through visual rebuses, with symbols that materialized and filled the air above their heads. They could understand spoken language, however.[2]


Dabus did not have names.[citation needed]

The dabus reported to and followed to the letter the unspoken orders of the Lady of Pain. They were routinely found maintaining the city of Sigil, building walls, destroying buildings, paving streets, and maintaining portals according to the Lady's wishes. Despite the dabus' patient nature, interrupting or standing in the way of their work was a risky affair that might land one in one of the Lady's mazes.[1]
