The Five Maidens in the Time of Tumult are:
- Mercury, the Maiden of Journeys
- Venus, the Maiden of Serenity
- Mars, the Maiden of Battles
- Jupiter, the Maiden of Secrets
- Saturn, the Maiden of Endings
It is rumored that each Age is ended by the death of one of the maidens, who will be replaced by a new one as required by the new Age.
One of the options for Oversight includes a Sixth Maiden, simply known as the Little Sister or Little Maiden, detailed on page 88 of The Manual of Exalted Power: Sidereals. She was created by the five maidens to take some of their work off their shoulders and is a very pitiable figure whose only emotion is fear. She lives in a doorless room underneath Yu Shan, sitting on a small chair and clutching a china doll while whispering to command the Loom of Fate.
