No, there are plenty of bourgeois, too: merchants and artisans, like the
Chreotha shoemaker, and Orca bankers and sailors. Dzur and Dragons (&
Phoenix of course) are often functionally noble, but the other houses
(iirc w/o checking my notes and page because my wife is yelling
SUPPER!), apart from the Teckla, are noble in theory but economically
mostly middle-class.
