The Vike are a hard working indomitable class of craftsmen and farmers that arguably keep all of Land’s Edge running smoothly because of what they contribute to food supply, economy, and safety. Most of the town guard is comprised of Vike. Almost all ship captains, innkeepers, and district officials are Vike. Even though this would seem to be above their station, these jobs are looked down upon by the higher classes. Vike are the least populous of all the classes in Land’s Edge, and despite the necessity of their existence have been unable to assert any political will because of institutional systems of control set in place long ago by the Moravian. As a courtesy the Vike are given a Council of Nine for representation in the High Council.
Vike are often very dark skinned with dark hair and eyes. They tend to be a little taller than most, other than the Breakers.
