The Social Class
Doctors, throughout the century has been

during the Medieval Period. They were regarded as the high-class, the well
educated. Doctors and physicians alike were very influential, especially
when knowledge about medicine weren\'t as perceived as now. People around
look up to them and go to them for help. Usually, the doctors are fairly
rich. The patients, despite his wealth, more or less, pays the doctor.
Those that are of higher classes often times reward doctors in gold. As

in spending. Some of them are relatively wary, like the one in this prologue.
Maybe, that\'s also one way they become rich - through stinginess.
