(Updated with more current info, did some cleaning. Added Slately's Ditto as a listing, since he died separately. Moved "Possible Noble Units" to Speculation, since that's where it belongs.)

Generally speaking, Nobles have a title designating their social status, such as [[Duke Nozzle]], Count [[Vinny Doombats]], or Viscount [[Caesar Borgata]]. Other likely titles would be Baron, Earl, or Marquis. The word [[Lord]] has been used for [[unit]]s who are not Royal or Noble.

It is also possible that not all Casters, Warlords, and/or Nobles popped by a [[Ruler]] are considered progeny of that Ruler - it may be another random chance, just as some Warlords pop as Casters and some units pop as Noble. Alternatively, she may be called Lady by virtue of having been [[Chief Caster]], or because she was an [[Adept-class]] Predictamancer.

Proposed Canon

Royal and Noble Units have slightly stronger stats and Level faster than normal Units.Erf-b1-p079aSame-site.PNG Cities ruled by Royals may Pop Nobles and more Royals.

Nobles have a title designating their social status, such as Duke Nozzle, Count Vinny Doombats, or Viscount Caesar Borgata. "Lord" and "Lady" have been used for both noble and caster units (as well as Parson), but not Royal units.

Royal Ideals

King Slately LIAB Text 42 listed the following Royal Ideals, implying by the ellipsis that there are more than those listed here. (Presumably the missing list includes Duty.) Since Loyalty is also a unit's attribute, the others may be as well.

  • Honor
  • sacrifice
  • dignity
  • decorum
  • station
  • ...
  • loyalty
  • bravery

  • Jack Snipe - Jack (or Knave) was his title, not his name; this indicates a position of a servant. It is not a military rank or official position, however, and fulfills the same purpose of a noble title. Practically, Snipe enjoyed the same treatment as Lady Wanda Firebaugh, as both were Casters. That he is given a title at all is interesting, as it is seemingly rare; most non-noble units simply use military ranks for the purposes of hierarchy and social interaction.

Speculation

Royals might only be popped in a capital city, while Nobles could be created in any city which is part of a Royal side. It probably takes longer to create a Royal than it does a Noble, and longer to create a Noble than a non-Noble (though Turnamancy can accelerate this process). The social rank of a Noble probably correlates to the size of the city in which he was popped, so a Duke comes from a big city (maybe the capital), and a Viscount comes from a very small city. Caesar Borgata, a Viscount, is described as being "barely a Noble", suggesting that a Duke is likely to have slightly higher initial stats than a Count, who is likely to be slightly higher than a Viscount.

It's possible free will is a innate trait to Royals, as most of the non-Ruler royals are described as ornery and contrary to their progenitor's wishes.

Many Royal and Noble Characters (especially Prince Ansom before his Decryption) believe Royalty and Nobility are the signs of Titanic mandate to rule. In fact, the purpose of the Royal Crown Coalition was to defend this belief against Stanley, who believes Titans favor those with the Arkentools.

All known Royals are warlords, but it has been implied that it is possible for Royals to be Casters as well. Wanda may be an example of a Noble Caster.

The only Noble titles seen thus far are Duke, Count, Viscount, and possibly Lord/Lady. Other potential titles could include Baron, Earl, or Marquis.

Possible Noble Units

Some, but seemingly not all, Casters have the title of Lord or Lady, and may be Noble.
