The dabus are a race unique to Sigil and are the personal entourage of the Lady of Pain.


Dabus are humanoids with white hair, goatlike horns and yellow-tan skin. Except for Fell, they all float inches above the ground, their feet never touching the earth.


My bet? They *can* speak, they just would rather piss everyone else off by trying to puzzle out what they're saying.


The dabus speak only through visual rebuses, with symbols that materialize and fill the air above their heads. They can understand spoken language, and some speculate they actually can speak, but simply choose not to.

Dabus don't have names. The only exception to this is Fell.

With 13 Intelligence or Wisdom, The Nameless One can learn to decipher the Dabus language by speaking to any Dabus in the Hive (some can be found in the Mortuary Area). This rewards 1000 XP. (Note: If TNO has 13 Intelligence but less than 13 Wisdom, it only rewards 500 XP.)


The dabus report to and follow to the letter the unspoken orders of the Lady of Pain. They are routinely found maintaining the city of Sigil, building walls, destroying buildings, paving streets, maintaining portals according to the Lady's wishes.

Despite the dabus' patient nature, interrupting or standing in the way of their work is a risky affair that may land one in one of the Lady's mazes.
