Thrane Nobles

Thrane nobles are intelligent, insightful aristocrats, trained in the knowledge of management, politics and magic. It is they who serve as political and religious officials, merchants and military tacticians under the guidance of a high ranking military officer. Nobles are much smaller than the drones, usually standing 5 feet to 6 feet tall and weigh 100 to 150 pounds. Their appearance is somewhat different than that of the drones. They possess a more human look, more like that of a hobgoblin, but they can undoubtedly be recognized as the thrane. Their skin is not nearly as dark, ranging from a light drab green to a light brown or deep brazen hue, and their eyes are green, blue, red or gray. The nobles hold much of the power in their society, commanding respect and obedience from those of a lower station. Only those who are military officers or shamans venture out into the world, beyond the borders of their lands.
