Handmaids may be of noble birth themselves, or they may be mere smallfolk servants. In Essos, they may be slaves. Handmaids may companionably share the bed of the woman they are attending.
A Game of Thrones
When Princess Daenerys Targaryen marries Khal Drogo in Pentos, her brother Viserys gifts her three slave handmaids: Irri, Jhiqui, and Doreah. Viserys did not pay for the handmaids himself; their host, Illyrio Mopatis, had provided them. Irri is to teach Daenerys horse riding, Jhiqui will teach her the Dothraki language, and Doreah will teach her the arts of love.
