The Drudge

The most populous group of people, the drudge are the lowest members on each tower. Unfit for the more refined labor of the Makers, those in the Drudge spend their days mining in the superheated crust for Mycota and other fungi that are needed for survival in the city. They are given small rations of water from the Anointed as rewards for mining the most essential parts of the diet of Calescai.
