The big difference between the nobles and commoners of the Lands of the Moon is that commoners have to earn their voting rights while the nobles are born with them. Still even with this the equality between the classes is way closer then in most of the other kingdoms in the Brineinan Union. Commoners can rise high-up in the ranks.
Merchants are the official traders, shopkeepers, importers and brokers of the Lands of the Moon. It is relatively easy for a merchant family to get voting rights for their members as they enjoy a reverred status in the wealth-based society of the Moonians.

Lilian Sale, better known as Lily Legless, is one of the richest merchants in the Lands of the Moon. She is the leader of the unofficial Merchant’s guild and holds a lot of power among the others in the merchant class. She is rumored to run an underground black market in enchanted items, but mostly makes her fortune from trading spices with the Lymans of Icepepper Isle. While a supporter of Prince Morthy, her loyalty is shallow and might switch if the price is right. Lily Legless lost her legs in a pirate raid and replaced them with two artificial robotic legs. Lily invests heavily into robotics companies and her LL Robitics has merged with many smaller companies in this field. This creation of robotic limbs is a technological marvel that, together with the Alchemist’s Guild, put the Lands of the Moon on the map as one of the greatest technological powers in Tegai.

Official alchemists are the members of the Alchemist's Guild. The Alchemist's Guild is one of the few institutions outside the Temples of Lunar Worship that is exempt from all taxes. They are the masters of alchemy and one of the reasons the Lands of the Moon are a great power in the Brineinan Union. Joining the Alchemist's Guild does strip you of any noble status you might have head before. But all alchemists that graduate the education phase automatically get voting rights, so nothing of much value is lost.

It is unknown if this story is true, but it is known that Lea is very protective of Myra.
