A master-servant is a Vorin profession that can be held by darkeyed citizens of the second nahn. They are hired to work for well off lighteyes and attend to their needs. They perform a number of duties including, but not limited to, fetching refreshments and meals, delivering messages, and staffing events and institutions. A variety of hand signals can be used to indicate to the master-servant what task is required, or simply to request assistance.[1][2][3][4][5]

The standard uniform for a master-servant includes a crisp white shirt with an emblem over the breast and either black pants or a black skirt.[4][5] Those with long hair will often wear it bound.[4] Master-servants in training have an all black uniform and there is no emblem on their shirts.[5] The refined manner in which they act is a point of pride for most master-servants, though this attitude is mocked by those of other classes.[1]

Master-servants staff the Kharbranthian Conclave and the Palanaeum.[4][6]

Szeth posed as a master servant when he broke into the Conclave in Kharbranth to kill Taravangian.[7]
