Mehri is Marjane's nanny and maid. She was taken in by the Satrapi's as a young child because her impoverished family could not support her. Mehri falls in love with a neighborhood boy but she cannot be with him because she is from a lower social class than he is. Despite being the maid, Mehri was more like the older sister Marjane never had.
