Maiden (the Seven)
The Maiden, or the Maid, is one of the seven aspects of a single deity. Believers of the Faith of the Seven consider their god to be one with seven aspects, as the sept is a single building, with seven walls.

A Clash of Kings

A Feast for Crows
The pious dwarf makes Brienne of Tarth's acquaintance at the Seven Swords inn. After chatting with her he notices Brienne looks sad and asks her if she is thinking of her missing sister. He pats her hand and tries to reassure her, telling her:-
|“||The Crone will light your way to her, never fear. The Maiden will keep her safe.||”|
|“||The Maiden dances through the sky,
she lives in every lover's sigh.
Her smiles teach the birds to fly,
and gives dreams to little children.
