If homestucks caste system was realistic then jades would by far be the highest caste considering they have the possibility to kill the creature spitting out new trolls and extinct whole generations of blood colors


fungus -

i'd disagree with that - doctors have the ability to kill pretty much everyone, and they're not the highest class people. janitors and garbagemen could singlehandedly ruin life on earth if they all banded together and said "actually, no".

jades are just the most essential to have on your side in the case of a caste war, because whoever has them can then control what castes' populations swell and what castes die out

I’d agree but doctors (surgeons at least) are payed a lot which is kinda a high caste if you think in capitalism plus doctors in general aren’t oppressed and don’t have the same motive

the jades are thought the most politically important caste while the pchycicly gifted castes are the ones that would lead in a meritocratic caste system since gold and rust bloods are both basically living guns meanwhile what does sea dwellers have other than amphibious tendencies


fungus -

how much are midwives and nurses paid tho? how much are nannies paid? jadebloods arent surgeons; they deliver and care for grubs. and in any case surgeons aren't the 1%. they do well for themselves, but they are firmly professional-managerial (middle) class, which if the hemocaste were divided into 3 sections, jadebloods would be in

seadwellers have a horrorterror. they use that plus the purplebloods and bluebloods to gain power; having a living gun is nice and all, but they're not very useful if they've been tormented to death or mind controlled against you. also, there's probably some amount of boosted charisma the seadwellers (or maybe just fuchsiabloods) have that makes people more likely to listen to them, tho with the horrorterror they don't really need it.

i've also seen a headcanon going around of higher castes living longer, and having various other advantages such as carapaces. also, seadwellers can retreat to the ocean. can't kill em there. and if you try their lusus will get you

youre making great points about the defence of water, pre drones and all that shit seadwellers deffos had that advantage not to mention a free rein on their sleep schedule if they live deep in the ocean however were making assumtions that the longer lifespan is a prime gene and not bred into lower castes and/or cause of cercomstance since the hc is based on mindfang or vriska making likenesses of the general group and of course a rust has a shorter lifespan if theyre sent off to die for the empire

as the worldbuilding is in homestuck yes it makes sense but if you think of the natural evolution all super powered castes would dominate with the seadwellers still being high on the caste ladder due to defence and hey maybe fuschias used to be the ones taking care of the mothergrub (arguably a fucking horrorterror too) and rebelled like the jades could do well if organized (and not against murder drones but yknow)


fungus -

it could be that the lower caste psyonics were deliberately manipulated by the fuscia bloods to have lower lifespans. their powers are very much industrial/working class powers outside of war, and similarly the upper caste psyonics are more oriented towards mental manipulation i.e. political play and public control

perhaps also the extreme power of being able to manipulate physical objects has some sort of detrimental effect on the user - helmsmen were fused with the ships they were operating becoming literal batteries - perhaps it was a form of life support?

i like the idea of fuscias being the original mothergrub caretakers pre-gl'bgolyb but i'm not sure if i totally see it? the jadebloods had the advantage of being able to survive in the daytime which was supposed to give them advantage in caretaking (if lusus can survive in daytime as well) and i'm not sure how being a seadweller would help

jades really are the powerhouse of the castes tho in terms of rebellion advantage
