Jabow is an anthropomorphic snake. He has black skin with red markings on his face and ears. At the tip of his tail is a rhomboid-shaped red gemstone. His outfit resembles that of a coal miner.
"Jabow" comes from a snake known as "Ojayama."
Jabow is the real life mascot of Omuta, Japan. He's described as a snake in a coal miner's uniform, for the city has a mining history and holds yearly snake festivals. He is based on the Daija (大蛇) or "Giant Snake," a youkai that is worshipped as the deity guardians of the Shiga Highlands.
