Pharabu is a black woman-shaped silhouette with stars in it, as if you can see a woman-shaped hole in the universe through which you can see the night sky.
She is a kind nuturing motherly figure with a strong sense of responsibility.
She has control over shadows.
Pharabu is in shadow world to make her children fly across the sky to their origin before Ayam Aghoul traps her in a giant spiderweb to proceed with his plan of using his shadow to capture and corrupt all the shadows to send their owners to the Netherworld. Aladdin and Genie go to the shadow world to find her and initially she mistakes them for Ayam's minions before realizing they are there to help her but Genie can't free her. Aladdin tricks Ayam into throwing an exploding skeleton on the web, breaking it and freeing her. She reclaims his shadow, sending him to the Netherworld as his shadow was his only tie to the living and she returns everyone's shadows while advising Aladdin to rest.
