Duma ("dumbness" or "silence") was originally a Sumerian god of vegetation from Yiddish folklore. Duma is said to be the chief of the demons in Jinnestan. He is also one of the seven Princes of Hell as well as the national guardian of Egypt. A jinn of vindication, Duma is the demon of the silence of death and commands the Presidents of Hell, 12,000 servitors, and tens of thousands of jinn of destruction. He is described as having a thousand eyes and carries a flaming sword.
