Poobi is Orual's serving girl. She is young and always treated Orual nicely, even when Batta, the old nurse, did not. When Orual gains power, she has Batta hanged, but she frees Poobi. Poobi is not a prominent character in the novel, but her presence illustrates Orual's personality, who rules fairly and punishes those deserving of it.
