A Maid (メイド, meido) refers to any being that is hired to serve a household. Duties include attending to the occupants of the house, preparing food for owners and guests alike, cleaning and maintaining the house and surrounding property, and in Gensokyo, acting as bodyguards against intruders. They are usually dressed in a French maid uniform, for inexplicable reasons.

According to ZUN, a maid is "a mythical being that all of us have heard about, but have never seen."
