"You mix up soup when she gets sick, you cuddle her when she's crying, and you make sure none of us dangerous warrior types scare her."
"Trust me, there's a lot more to it than that.
―Mid Captain Samakro and Caregiver Thalias on the role of caregivers[1]

A Caregiver was a female Chiss assigned to take care of ozyly-esehembos. Originally, all caregivers were former ozyly-esehembos, though that practice eventually faded away. Mitth'ali'astov served as the Caregiver to Che'ri while aboard the Springhawk. Che'ri called her caregiver a "momish."[1] Caregivers accompanied ozyly-esehembos on their journeys, often with the Chiss Expansionary Defense Fleet, though both were considered civilians.[2]

Among other duties, caregivers were responsible for feeding and bathing the sky-walkers under their care.[1]
