Burgher

As cities have become more and more important to the Empire, a new class of citizen has emerged: the Burgher. Burghers — or their ancestors — clawed their way up from the peasantry and made new lives for themselves in the cities. Now they are the glue that holds urban society together. Burghers are shop owners, petty merchants, excisemen, traders, and local officials. They are neither despised as the peasantry nor as exalted as the nobility. While they suffer the most from plague, living in tightly packed neighborhoods as they do, they would not leave a city for a life of hard toil in the country. In their minds, cities breed opportunity, not just disease
