The Citizenry are the elite few of Alera. The ranks of the Citizenry are as follows:
- Steadholder — The head of a steadholt.
- Count/Countess — Presides over a small number of steadholts, their immediate lord.
- Lord/Lady — Rules a section of a High City's land.
- High Lord/Lady — De facto rulers of the High Cities and all land within their borders.
- First Lord/Lady — The leader of Alera, the First Lord is subject only to the wishes of the Senate and the laws of the Realm. Typically the single most powerful furycrafter in the Realm, the First Lord wields extraordinary power through the fury Gaius Sextus called “Alera.”
In addition, the legitimate families of each rank—except Steadholders—may also be considered part of the Citizenry.
