A Caste is a form of social stratification.

While many forms of caste still exist across the galaxy, it is perhaps most noticeable in the Ynde Territories, where most people are forced to stay within predetermined social boundaries.

Lower-caste inhabitants live in poverty and work unsavory or demeaning jobs, while upper-castes enjoy the fruits of the lower-castes labors.

It is usually socially unacceptable for a person of a higher caste to speak or interact with a member of a lower caste, and all castes consider the lowest class to be “untouchable.” They are pariahs, and are expected to break their backs for the entirety of their society.

Different baronies use the caste system to separate individuals into to groupings most commonly by Heritage. The interactions of class and heritage are slightly different, however, though the basic principle is the same—separation of a person from their society.
