Pleiades (プレアデス) is the combat maid squad of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. Its members originally only served as Nazarick's last line of defense, but Ainz Ooal Gown has assigned them more tasks after the tomb was transported.
The Pleiades is the combat maid squad of Nazarick, programmed as sisters. Unlike the other homunculus maids under the orders of Pestonya Shortcake Wanko, the Pleiades members do not have any skills for housework and instead fight under Sebas's command as a final raid boss team right before the throne hall. All of them are women of unsurpassed beauty, each with a different type of appeal. After the teleportation to the New World, three of them are working outside of the tomb. This seems to be because they are amongst the rare NPCs from Nazarick who can easily disguise themselves as humans.
The Pleiades can be organized in two different formations. One is the "Pleiades Six Stars" and the other is the "Pleiades Seven Sisters". These formations can be switched by changing the leader to Sebas Tian or Aureole Omega. The "Pleiades Seven Sisters" activates in Volume 6, yet Ainz does not allow her to move and thus, Yuri Alpha becomes deputy leader.

The Pleiades, specifically Yuri, Lupusregina, Solution, Shizu and Entoma, under the alias as Jaldabaoth's Demon Maids were used as a bargaining chip in the negotiations with the Holy Kingdom Liberation Army and the Sorcerer Kingdom. Though the resistance had yet to confirm these maids in the Northern Holy Kingdom, they agreed to allow Ainz to take control of them once he had dealt with Jaldabaoth.
With all of them except Sebas and Aureole Omega being under level 65, the Pleiades's combat capability is quite low considering the role they have been given. This is because the final defense line of Nazarick is actually concentrated on the 8th Floor. The actual purpose of the Pleiades is just to delay the invaders, allowing all the guild members enough time to gather together in the throne hall and greet the invaders like villains in fiction. Despite this, the low power levels in the new world make them equivalent to legendary monsters.

- The dual organization of the Pleiades refers to two different meanings of the word "Pleiades". In Greek mythology, the Pleiades refer to the seven sisters, daughters of the titan Atlas, while in astronomy the Pleiades is a star cluster called the "Six Combined Star" (六連星) in Asia.
- The homunculus maids of Nazarick think of the Pleiades as a kind of idol group, with CZ the most popular among them.
- The members of the Pleiades called each other sisters, but unfortunately they were not true sisters, since they were made by separate creators. They were simply designed to be that way.
