Temaida (pronounced tehm-EYE-dah) is a raka noble family that is based in the Copper Isles. It is a cadet branch of the Haiming Dynasty and survived the purge that the Rittevon rulers attempted in order to eradicate the Haiming rulers. They secretly carried the blood for years as the last of the Haiming family in order to fulfill the Kyprish Prophecy.
The Temaida family, being full-blood raka nobility, had a tough time in the Rittevon court. The raka nobility were looked down upon and sometimes feared by the luarin, thus they had to fear for their lives and make choices such as withdrawing from their family, after the Balitangs had been exiled by King Oron.
Upon the Balitangs' return to Rajmuat, they outfitted Sarai with a staff of her own. It was a custom among raka nobility to make their daughters seem more attractive to suitors. They were also aware that Sarai would perhaps be queen soon.
- Sarugani Temaida married Mequen Balitang, a Rittevon duke with royal luarin blood. Their daughters, Saraiyu and Dovasary Balitang were the twice-royal ladies, as the daughters of both royal houses. Sarugani's dowry was Tanair, a modest holding on Lombyn Island. It was passed onto the girls when she died.
- Saraiyu Balitang was Mequen and Sarugani's eldest daughter and the original candidate for rulership of the Raka Conspiracy.
