The Highbower Chronicle
The Wretched are outcasts from polite society, who have been thrown into the city’s lowest caste due to some disgrace. They are grudgingly allowed within the city walls, but they are prevented entry to places of nobility. They are considered unclean, and responsible people about town avoid prolonged contact with them as much as possible. The life of the Wretched is a laborious struggle, and so many of them cling together in a loose organization to support one another.
