To his Personal Handmaiden,
Okka and Okan enjoy a close friendship, officially, with the two of them sharing a lot of walks and discussing many matters, amongst them Ihmiset Literature, which Okan learned to like at Okka's recommendations and a gift.
Unofficially, Okan likes her very much, seeing her not only as an intellectual equal, but also as a young woman, who he could love, despite the difference in age. She knows of that, which leads to a complicated relationship between the two, only made worse by the fact, that she is crushing on him quite heavily.
Okan keeps himself out of any matter pertaining the ascension of the Territory of Jalid to a Khanate, knowing, that any interference of his could only make it worse.
Bey Keke Melko and Beya Vilja Melko approve of this sort of relationship and made it known to Okan's Handmaiden, that if they were ever try to use that relationship to their own advantage, she was allowed to punch them.
