- "She trained as a septa, only she had other urges..."
Septas are the female clergy of the Faith of the Seven. They are women sworn to celibacy, sometimes serving noble houses as governesses and tutors to the daughters of lords, teaching them in matters of etiquette and history and activities such as sewing. In contrast, male clergy are known as septons.
Septas dress in humble clothing, the color varying, normally a subdued shade, with their hair concealed.
