Known Maegi

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Maegi are distrusted and hated by the Dothraki, who claim they lay with demons. Some of them have the capability of foretelling a person's future by tasting a drop of their blood.

According to Mirri Maz Duur, the word "Maegi" means "wise".

"Maggy", who in the books is stated to be Essosi, probably gets her name from a Common Tongue attempt at pronouncing "maegi".
