Sairaih Hahlmyn was a Chisholmian citizen and Princess Sharleyan personal maid since she was a little girl.

She was a great help to the empress during her pregnancy. No matter what Father Derahk, the palace healer, might say, Sairaih could be relied upon to think of one of Sharleyan's innumerable female ancestors who had experienced the same problem, only incomparably worse. Sharleyan suspected her to imagine she was reassuring her by telling her how lucky she was that things were less bad than they could have been. (AMF)
