The idea of ablations is introduced in the third volume of ''Return to Labyrinth'', and is explained by the sorceress [[Mizumi]] who is the only character with the ability to create them. Mizumi tells [[Toby Williams|Toby]] and Moppet that the creation of an ablation involves the extraction of a particular essence from a chosen subject, the essence generally being a powerful emotion or characteristic. The ablation is solely charecterized by the stolen aspect it embodies, while the source it was taken from loses that aspect.

Mizumi is the first character in the series known to have created ablations, extracting the feelings of Hope and Regret from her to make her daughters [[Moulin]] and [[Drumlin]]. Both first appear as infants, and are later seen as children, implying that Mizumi created ablations that age as real children would. Mizumi made these ablations following [[Jareth the Goblin King|Jareth's]] rejection of her; she was unable to cope with her emotions and removed them so she would no longer have to experience then. Mizumi eventually re-absorbs both Moulin and Drumlin, making herself complete again. As she is once again able to feel hope and regret, she withdraws her hostile from the Goblin Kingdom, resigning herself to wait in the hope that Jareth will one day return her love.
