The aristocrat class reflects those of a wealthy and refined upbringing. While nobles commonly meet the description, rich and educated commoners can as well. Due to their extensive education, good diet, and reasonable medical care, aristocrats possess a wide variety of skills, are reasonably tough, and possess familiarity with combat and martial weapons.
In Eberron, aristocrats may be NPCs with backgrounds in a dragonmarked house or more traditional noble heritage. Typically, aristocrats from Khorvaire will have names that reflect their background, bearing either the d' of the dragonmarked heir, or the ir' of a Galifaran noble family.
