Of exalted rank; of or pertaining to the nobility; distinguished from the masses by birth, station, or title; highborn; as, noble blood; a noble personage.
A person of the ruling class. In Viroth, noble families own and govern all land under the king, serving as the machinations of a feudal government (judges, governors, generals, lawmakers, etc). In theory, nobles guide, protect and bring order to common civilization. In turn, peasants (any one who isn't nobility) surrender to nobles their respect and obedience. It is against Viroth law for a peasant to act or speak aggressively towards nobility, no matter the circumstances.
