Lower Servants are Slaves within The Holy Nation, usually working in one of the many Holy Mine sites.

Lower Servants are distinguished by their orange robes. Other characters (such as Hungry Bandits) which are caught and enslaved are sometimes given green robes.

They are worked by Slavers hired by the Holy Nation, as well as Holy Nation soldiers (Sentinels and Paladins) stationed at the mines.

The Slavers generally hurl insults at them, while the Holy Nation soldiers prefer to remind them of the virtues of serving Okran.

Lower Servants may be recruited once freed; they will follow the player for some time, before engaging in dialogue. Given certain dialogue choices, the Player can either part with them or allow them to join their squad. Note that they will have the "Slave of" Holy Nation and "Looks Like Slave" percentage tied to their character for some time following their recruitment. Giving them proper armour and clothing will help protect them until the two tags eventually go away.

Once the Lower Servants are in the party, you can turn certain pieces of equipment Orange by placing it on the Lower Servant.

They wear [Shoddy] armour (5% chance of [Standard]).
