** Pointedly averted with ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine's'' General Martok. He was actually born a commoner and clawed his way UpThroughTheRanks by [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority methods]] [[KlingonPromotion dear]] [[{{Badass}} to the]] [[ProudWarriorRace Klingon heart]] (and this was despite being blacklisted by Kor for his low birth). Presumably his noble rank is by marriage (or merit) rather then birth.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/BloodAndHonor'': Purebloods can trace their descent from the high priests of the ancient Sith race, and Sanguis is no exception. Her storied heritage is brought up occasionally and she has a family estate, complete with servants, on the Imperial homeworld of Dromund Kaas. Several other Sith encountered over the course of the story mention being familiar with her house.

* The Vor in Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Barrayar]]'', though they themselves claim they are a military caste, and not an aristocracy (which is exactly what aristocracy ''was'' in the Middle Ages). Most other people treat them like aristocrats.

* Virtually all of the major and minor characters in the {{Deryni}} works are in this class. The better ones treat members of the lowers orders (such as Revan in the ''Legends of Camber'' and ''Heirs off Camber'' and Morgan's pagan swordsmith Ferris from the story "Trial") quite well. The rest, well, see AristocratsAreEvil.
