High-born protagonist

Creatures theme

The protagonist is high born, such as royalty, nobility, or some other significantly higher social class since birth. Not necessarily still holding the rights or powers such have.


Name variations: Noble protagonist, Royal protagonist, Aristocrat protagonist

The first video game about High-born protagonist was released in 1982.

Sierra On-Line, Ubisoft and Atlus has published most of these games

Of note are the knights of old who were nobility. However this may not be always true in some fictional worlds and there are honorary knights and similar things.

Cases where the character gained the higher social status later in life (the first in line of hence noble lineage) can also be included but a note should added about it.
