The Demonic Nobility are the nobles houses who serve under a king and queen in their realm and assist them with overseeing that realm. They are responsible for the territories of that realm and report directly to their king and/or queen. The Nobles are a very important part of the structure of the demon realms and help to maintain order in the overall realm, but also allow each realm to have their own independence and set their own rules. There is a very independent yet organized element to the demonic realms, demons are allowed to have their own freedoms, but they are also organized.
Grand Dukes and Grand Duchesses – This title is similar to Duke and Duchess, the difference is more of a promotional and distinguished factor then an actual change of duties. They also work with the Ruling Royalty of that realm to coordinate its workings and structures.

Counts and Countesses – The count and the countesses can be responsible for the individual armies of a specific realm and also coordinating the political side with the Demon Commanders.

They also can command their own personal legions and can be charged with the protection of an area of a realm.
