Within Glory City there are three major families (Manhua Variant: Name is changed to "Sovereign Families"). The City Lord is usually born from one of them. After them are the seven noble families and then the twenty aristocrat families. If a person is not a member of one of these families then they are considered a commoner. 
If a family produces a gold rank demon spiritualist, they can become an aristocrat family; if they produce a black gold rank demon spiritualist, they can become a noble family; and if they produce three black gold rank demon spiritualist or a legend rank spiritualist, they can become a major family.
A families position is largely decided by financial means and prestige. Producing strong demon spiritualists is considered essential because it results in an increase of both of these things. A strong spiritualist or fighter can join the army and draw an income relative to their rank. If a family is unable to do so, it is said to be on the decline. When this happens, the family falls in rank. This can result in a change in type, such as a major family becoming a noble family, a noble family becoming an aristocrat family, or even an aristocrat family becoming commoners. It appears that the number of each type of family is fixed, but these ranks can change greatly from one generation to another.
Note:The rank below is to give an idea of the family's power in relation to each other, with "1" being the most powerful. The ranking maybe inferred from the context in the case that it is not told outright.
Former Powerful Families:
The most common level of commoner family has a yearly income of about two to three thousand demon spirit coins. If a family could produce at least a bronze fighter, they could join the army and become a soldier, earning an annual salary of about five to six thousand demon spirit coins.
These are some of the commoner families:
There are also thirteen ancient families from various empires. They escaped the Age of Darkness by entering the Abyss Prison Realm inside the Ten Millennium Spatial Array and have been isolated here ever since. There are also a variety of small villages. However, unlike Glory City there is a lack of variety in demon beasts, while the ones that are hear are especially numerous and violent. This has lead to a lack of food and very few that choose to become Demon Spiritualists.
