Tabi are a race of flying monkeys introduced in Dungeons & Dragons module X4. From there they skipped the Companion Set, entering the BXCMI Creature Collection and the Mystara world. They are a playable race in the splatbook "Top Ballista".
In X4 one of these attend a Nagpa, implicitly (at that stage) some low-level demon. Indeed in poetic Arabic culture, their name means "attendant". They are the djinn who attend poets and madmen in the stony wastes.
