Babau are the assassins of the Abyss, and will only engage in combat with enemies that it has an advantage over. While not cowardly, the Babau is far from courageous, and carefully analyzes every encounter before engaging. Most lieutenants of the Abyss have a small army of Babau in their pay, to ensure quickly accessible killers for hire.
