Jadis is a demiurge and a member of the Seven.[4]


Jadis is entombed in glass, her body rotting away after being twisted from witnessing the Shape of the Universe. Because the event granted her unerring knowledge of the future, she is, in fact, omniscient.

Prior to being entombed, she appeared as a pale-faced woman with straight black hair in a kimono-like dress and wielded a curved-blade sword. She was described as a "wizard king", the most prodigious spellcaster amongst the demiurges.

As the embodiment of sloth, Jadis simply does almost nothing, but struggle to even whisper her prophecies while having her servants translate the rest to the best of their abilities.


Jadis only speaks in whispers behind her mask and not much else. Though not much can be sensed in her personality, she sincerely wishes to die.[5]


At one point before entering Throne, Jadis was mentored by her father, though she killed him at a young age.[6] By the end of the Universal War, she stood victorious with six other demiurges and was bestowed the title of "Lord of Infinity". She eventually helped establish the Pact of the Seven Part World, an agreement that carved the multiverse into seven pieces, one for each victor.

At some point after that, Jadis and her cult's upper echelons attempted to witness the Shape of the Universe. While they succeeded, the sight mutilated Jadis and killed all of her accompanying priests.[7]

At the concordance of the demiurges, Jadis is seen encased in glass, whispering about the prophecy of a new successor of Zoss destined to kill them all, which her interpreters helped translate to the rest of the demiurges[8].

She reappears at the second concordance, whispering about Zoss' plans.


  • Like the rest of the Seven, Jadis is based on the seven deadly sins of Christianity. Since her motif is light blue, she represents Sloth.
  • Jadis is the most knowing of any character in the comic, having witnessed the Shape of the Universe.[9]
  • Jadis, before her entombment, was once considered the second most powerful of the demiurges. Now, she is barely more powerful than Mammon, the weakest demiurge.[10]
  • Jadis is the name of the ruler of the dead world of Charn in C.S. Lewis' The Magician's Nephew, the first book of the Chronicles of Narnia.
