Trueborn is the Valornian term for any child born to parents belonging to the same House. A Trueborn is raised to fill a specific position, depending upon his rank (first child, second child, etc.) First born are usually raised to lead the family, and is thus trained for a political position. Second born are usually raised with a military career in mind, either within the Duchal forces or the Household Guard. Third born and downwards are usually raised for various minor political positions, such as government official or tax collector.
All Trueborn is raised to regard all Freeborn as inferior beings.
