Makers

The Makers exist in the middle of the towers and are responsible for crafting and refining materials for both Drudge and Anointed. People take a test called the Maker’s Mark to define their attributes once they complete the Truths. This test informs them what their future options for employment will be, as well as which tower they will make their residence in. Makers can technically refuse to follow the Mark’s directions, however there are massive tax penalties for doing so that make life nearly unlivable.

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.
