;Mythic and Prosaic Reality: There are two ways of looking at the universe in the Nobilis game. One is the worldview of prosaic reality, in which reality is much as we players understand it: physics, chemistry and so on. The other is the worldview of mythic reality, in which things are understood in animistic terms. In Prosaic reality the Earth is a planet floating in space, and the sun doesn't shine at night because we are in the shadow of the Earth. In Mythic reality, the Earth is a fruit hanging off the World Ash, and the Sun doesn't shine at night ever since the Sun and Night quarrelled and had a falling out. Most spirits perceive Mythic Reality, and most humans perceive Prosaic Reality. Nobles can operate freely in both worldviews, which gives them a tremendous edge both when doing magic and when renewing their driver's license at the DMV.

;Nobles: Nobles are humans who have had a piece of an Imperator's soul embedded within their heart. This gives them a miraculous command over some aspect of reality -- such as Chains, Roads, Freedom, Laughter or Blades -- and they act as viceroys for their Imperator while it conducts its war in the spirit realm. They are also called Sovereign Powers or Powers.
