Maid (メイド) is a job class that hailed originally from the New World.
To become a proper Maid, it requires a long period of training as Yuri was shown to be teaching Tuare various things like the proper walking posture. Her guidance would also include the duties a regular maid must usually carry out in everyday life. At some point during her hours of training daily, Tuare was able to eventually gain a job level in the Maid class.
By New World norm or standard, a windowless stone-walled room that let in the cold but not the sun or a damp and dark room with poor ventilation were the typical examples of rooms that normal maids lived in. In most noble residences, maids often appeared before guests and thus were allowed to take baths. However, all they were allowed to use was cold water only and no hot water.
For the Re-Estize Kingdom, the maids who worked in the palace were different from normal maids in that they were the daughters of noble houses who came to gain experience. In a way, the maids held a higher position than a lowly-born like Climb. Especially the ones who worked close to the royal family, most of them were daughters of high-ranking nobility. They would feel displeasure at the notion of having to lower their head to a man or woman who was less than a commoner was a show of anger among maids who hailed from that country. Some of the nobles' maids worked as spies for highly-ranking people such as Cocco Doll who is connected to the illegal Slave Trade.
Even for nobles, it was common for a woman who could not inherit their prestigious household to follow the path of a maid profession.
