Unpledged are the common entities that did not take a vow to join a legion of a Demon Lord, King or Queen. They are free from servitude under a Demon Lord, King or Queen (to an extent, they must still respect and obey those that are superior). They are the sub-realm residents that the King and Queen rule over. Unranked does not mean weak or powerless, they are free to study whatever they like, whenever they like. They may pursue their own interests without interruptions from the responsibilities that come with belonging to a legion, thus they may devote more time to their companion. Unpledged entities are like the townsfolk. Common entities like the monks, priests, teachers, just everyday regular status entities.
