Ushabti are masterfully constructed, life-size statues of a deceased noble hewn from rich stone quarried at enormous expense. These statues are dressed in fine linen, gold and jewels, suitable to the deceased’s station. Buried with the deceased they were commissioned for, ushabti were enchanted to awaken to life in the next world, and perform any labor the dead soul would be called upon to undertake in the afterlife.
Ushabti are common among the myriad planes of the afterlife, where they labor endlessly, or work to directly protect the deceased soul that commissioned them.
Ushabti are intelligent, dispassionate and hardworking, with strong and disciplined minds. Ushabti are higher in the social order than shabti, and share a similar origin. Ushabti often command vast troops of their lesser kin, acting as overseers of the enormous slave-gangs that toil tirelessly to build the logistical foundations of heaven.
