"The Chatelaine is responsible for helping newcomers in the society. Other terms you may hear used are Hospitaller, Castellan and Gold Key. In a historical sense a chatelaine was a small hook or chain worn on a belt to hold the keys of a shousehold or other useful items. The person who wore a chatelaine and kept the keys was often known as a castellan in English or in French as the chatelaine."
