And Parson is the "Lord Hamster" while not even being a native of Erf. "Lord" and "Lady" is probably just something all Commanders are called.
OTOH, I don't recall Sizemore ever being called "Lord" (though that could just be a reflection of the general lack of respect he gets).

The circumstances that yield the title Regent are unknown, though if that's what a Regent is than I would obviously not be right. If it's true, though, that Firebaugh is Noble, then he could specifically pop Noble sons or daughters and non-noble members of his tribe who would otherwise not be his children.
That might be suggested by the conversation about Ansom's real reason for opposing Stanley:
Book 1, Page 34 wrote:"Your beef is, he's not royal, right?"
"That he isn't noble, Vinnie. You're a Count. You should know--"
The implication is admittedly a bit thin, but this seems to suggest that noble Overlords exist, and are unobjectionable (or at least less objectionable) than commoner Overlords in Ansom(v1.0)'s traditionalist worldview.
Is this a real holy war, or just a bunch of deluded boopholes croaking each other?
