 **Patricians** are the social, physical, and intellectual elites of Elysian society. They are extremely physically strong, many are even strong enough to fly. Elysian society moves and aligns at the whim of the Patrician minority, a long-standing reality due to both tradition and religion. Being pure-blooded '​Elysian',​ Patricians naturally dominate over the multitudes of lesser, impure Elysians. Playing a Patrician is reserved for experienced players, and requires [[guide:​game_master]] permission. **Patricians** are the social, physical, and intellectual elites of Elysian society.

-**Caelisolans** are a genetically engineered replacement for the Plebeian subspecies. As an effort to eliminate "​impure"​ blood from the Elysian genome, [[faction:​elysia:society:​government:​senate]] started a sweeping program to transfer the souls of all Plebeians into Caelisolan bodies by [[calendar:​YE 32]]. The project was mostly completed, however logistical difficulties caused by the invasion of the NMX and cost overruns kept it from affecting certain Plebeian elements until YE 34. Though not as strong as the Patrician body, many Caelisolans are capable of flight, and a few of the "​defective"​ human traits that plagued many Plebeians have been removed. Caelisolan bodies are very common, and are the ideal "​player character"​ body for Elysians.+**Caelisolans** are a genetically engineered replacement for the Plebeian subspecies.

 **Plebeians** were the social underbelly of Elysian society. Relegated to the lower rungs of the social, political, and military ladder because of impure alien blood, Plebeians are seen by outsiders as downtrodden and neglected, but rarely saw themselves as such. Plebeians, like Patricians, largely saw their servitude as natural - decades, even centuries, of tradition have ensured as much.  **Plebeians** were the social underbelly of Elysian society.

-Patricians may work for [[faction:​elysia:society:​government:​senate]] as senators, diplomats, aides, or researchers. Patricians, like all Elysians, are permitted to join the [[stararmy:​star_army_of_yamatai]],​ however, since the merger of the [[faction:​elysia:​military:​navy]] and the Star Army, many Patricians find military service to be distasteful:​ Patrician pride doesn'​t mesh well with subservience to [[species:​nekovalkyrja]],​ though many remain employed in the combined fleets as well as the primarily Elysian. Civilian Patricians are almost always self-employed,​ running the show with a number of Caesolian/​Plebian employees, though their businesses are becoming more integrated with the rest of the Yamataian Empire.+Patricians may work for [[faction:​elysia:​government:​senate]] as senators, diplomats, aides, or researchers.

-Caelisolans may work for [[faction:​elysia:society:​government:​senate]] in any of the same roles as Patricians. Caelisolans may also join the [[stararmy:​star_army_of_yamatai]],​ and are far more likely to be found in the Star Army than Patricians or Plebeians - Caelisolans are more physically capable than Plebeians and easier able to meet specifications,​ but lack the prideful disdain for serving others common to Patricians. Civilian Caelisolans are sometimes self-employed,​ though usually serve the same role as Plebeians used to - working under the employ of a successful Patrician. While Caelisolans have rights and advantages that Plebeians did not, the social attitude is often much the same.+Caelisolans may work for [[faction:​elysia:​government:​senate]] in any of the same roles as Patricians.

 What Plebeians are left are usually found in the same jobs as they used to hold, if they'​re still a part of the Elysian "​nation"​ and not incarcerated. Outside of the Elysian nation, they still tend towards the more menial labors. What Plebeians are left are usually found in the same jobs as they used to hold, if they'​re still a part of the Elysian "​nation"​ and not incarcerated.
