Typically denotes a person who serves by their own free will, as an act of duty or loyalty, rather than by enslavement or domination. This distinction blurs in dragon culture, where loyalty is owed to the strongest and most dominant. Related word zaam specifically refers to a slave without free will.
Related to aam ‘to serve’.
Also appears as aan in one line of dialogue, either a variant or possibly a mistake.
