In Mai-Otome, Otomes (Japanese singular: 乙HiME, literally indicating a "-class HiME") are elite virgin female warriors on the planet of Earl. The title given to Otomes when they have a Master is Meister. A Meister's life is intertwined with that of the Master, so that if either should be injured, both should feel it. They also die at the same moment. The Otomes are able to materialise a robe and element through nanoprobes incorporated into their body's systems and regulated by means of a GEM (Generable Enigmatic Matrix]], which takes the form of a jewel in an ear stud in the left ear of Otomes.

Otomes are trained exclusively at the Garderobe Academy, located in the country of Windbloom. The Academy is also the source for all GEMs, as well as a repository for considerable scientific, technological and historical information. Such is the monopoly Garderobe holds over science and technology on Earl, several groups seeking to develop science are antagonistic towards it, most notably the Schwartz and their erstwhile allies the Aswad.

Between the War of the Dragon King, some 50 years before the first Mai-Otome series was set, and the Schwartz-induced battle between Carla Bellini and Laula Bianchi, the Otomes of the rival Lutesia Romulus and Remus respectively, Otomes have been more of a de rigeur accessory for leaders and aristocrats than the actual "weapons of mass destruction" they were previously. There had been no battles between Meisters during this time apart from a skirmish in which Lena Sayers easily overcame four of Garderobe's Five Columns after they planned to kill Lena's friend Sifr Fran.

Combatant using REM Edit

The REM technology provides the user with GEM-like capabilities for originally a short period of time. REMs were back engineered by the Aswad from a GEM.

User Allegiance Notes
Midori MOMidori Aswad Leader of the Aswad.

Interplanetary agent of destruction Edit

The antagonist in Mai-Otome Zwei is an interplanetary agent of destruction by the name of Yuna, who arrives aboard a meteor fragment and proceeds to modify the nanoprobes of any Otomes who come against her to give those Otomes the constitution and appearance of stone. She later takes on the guise of a giant Fumi Himeno. She has access to Childs, including Kagutsuchi and, in a more abstract fashion, Miroku.
