Class System

The class system in Elpida is somewhat unique, branching off of the mainland ideals, but differentiated by the vacuum in power and money. Due to Elpida being such a new colony, there is a huge amount of fluidity and progression that is present in the class system. It is nowhere as rigid as the traditional class system of the mainland, where your social standing is all dependent on your family. In Elpida, it mostly focuses on politics, trade, and religion - the 3 staples of the colony.

Typically, the newer generation have little regard for it, viewing it as an old and redundant way of thinking. However, the older generation often still believes in it, being of the opinion that you should marry within your class, etc.
