— Nunciel Great-Cook when taking on the title of Duke of Felkhath
  Among the nobility of Theydim, the higher rank one was, the more titles they carried. The Arle generally also wore the titles of Duke, and Lord, so when their heir came of age, they would take on the lesser titles in a fealty-swearing ceremony. Different regions would hold these ceremonies differently, but when the Heir took on one of the lesser titles formally, it was an annoucement to the region that the Heir would be preparing to take on the roles and responsibilities of their future titles.   These ceremonies would also be the begining of the Heir's final stages in their education for the role, leading towards them acting on behalf of their would-be predecessor's interests and developing their own methods for achieving their own interests for the future in their roles.
