Ranchers are practical countryfolk who raise and train animals. They have a deep expertise in the fauna that surrounds them, able to befriend them, train them, assess them, and nurture them. Most work in agricultural or wilderness areas, although some take on specializing in particular aberrations or swarms.

Ranchers are usually raised around animals, learning about them through practical, hands-on experience. Some work with wild animals, hunting, taming, riding, and protecting them. Others focus on domesticated animals, working on ranches, farms, or seaholds. The Bluehall Academy has started to approach the study and training of animals in a more scholastic way, but few yet have gone through their program.

Ranchers are usually considered ordinary, salt-of-the-earth folks. They're a bit more specialized than a pure agricultural or resource laborer, but aren't considered quite as refined as gardeners or brewers.
