A Maid is a female house servant. They may be seen in the kitchen, or perhaps as part of the cleaning staff. There are also Chambermaids, which are typically responsible for the well-being of a single person or a small group, such as the Lady/Lord of a mansion and/or their children. In fiction, there is usually something special about them.
Some of the specific types of maids in fiction:
- French Maid: The Hotter and Sexier version.
- Maid Corps: Having so many maids they practically count as a private army.
- Meido: The cute version.
- Ninja Maid: When a maid is also skilled at various forms of combat.
- Robot Maid: The maid is also a robot.
- Super-Powered Robot Meter Maids: A robot made to look and act similar to the real thing and has way more power than expected, regardless of original intent. May also be an actual maid, but doesn't have to.
- Scullery Maid: The realistic version; maids who are "just there to do work". May be more important than appears, though.
Also, see Maid RPG for the game.
Not to be confused with "maidens" which are simply young women, limited to virgins.
