Maire was one of Colavaere Saighan's attendants.

One day, Colavaere shared some of her plans with Maire. She told Maire that she had plans to rid Cairhien of the Aiel, sending them south, and that she planned to return Cairhien to as it was before Rand appeared. She also said that if Rand ever returned to Cairhien, he would not dare challenge her. Maire told Faile about what Colavaere had said. Soon after, she vanished, and while Faile has no proof, she believes that Colavaere regretted telling Maire too many of her plans and had her killed. Annoura tells Rand that she knows nothing of what happened to Maire except that, one morning she was there, and before nightfall she was nowhere to be found and no one knew where she had gone.

Colavaere claims that Maire left her service and that she has no idea where she went. She tells Rand to bring Maire before her, if she is still in the city, so that she can fling her lies in her face.
