A baron is a powerful noble in Araluen who rules over a fief. Those who bear the title of baron are responsible for ruling the Fiefs of Araluen but are required to take an oath of servitude to the King. In Arrida, a Wakir is the Arridi equivalent of a baron. The barons have varying degrees of power, which were each usually tied to the fief they served. Baron Arald has seniority among the Barons of Araluen. There were fifty barons: one for each fief, where they lived in their castles. However, there are currently 49 fiefs as Gorlan Fief has been deserted ever since the First Araluen Civil War, though there are still people living there. If a major crime is committed, the fief's baron acts as judge.
