The Tanmind are a social class in Ors who are generally wealthier and more prestigious than the resident Orsians. Jen Shinnan ans Jen Taa were members of this group, and were both killed in the Tanmind Riot. Some Tanmind own farmland in the regions surrounding Ors.

The Tanmind culture has long held close-minded and narrow views of Orsians, one prominent Tanmind even going so far as to say that Orsians are not individuals. Prior to Shis'urna's annexation the Tanmind practiced environmentally destructive trades, including removing the mud from the river to sell, and then blamed the Orsians for the depletion of natural resources.
