So, I'm writing an essay on the Throne of Glass series, but have only had the chance to read the first three books thus far. I'm analyzing it using the Marxist school of literary criticism, however, that focuses upon power/class struggles. So I need to figure out the order in which the classes in the series rank. Such as the King of Ardarlan would (Sadly) be on top (At least in these first three books), followed by the court of Ardarlan (And all of the classes within, such as the Queen Prince Dorian, Lords, dukes and duchesses, so forth), and then the other kingdoms, then every "low-life" (Citizens, assassins, criminals) then the magic users, then fae.
Yeah... If any kind soul would be willing to help, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

so, this series is amazingly good, but there are some characters that in my opinion are wasted... like:
roland havilliard- dorian said he was evil when they were children, then he comes to the palace and seemingly changes his ways for no reason.....and thats it, after that hes captured then randomly killed and thats that
kaltain rompier- she got it better than roland, but i still feel like they could have done so much more with this character
arobynn hamel- so yeah, hes pretty important in assassins blade, but then is unheard of until queen of shadows where hes nowhere near as fearful as celaena puts him then he dies and apparently theres no opposition???and only like 5 assassins in the whole guild?? i guess the author wanted to kill him already, but that was pretty weak...
celaena- i dont like aelyn at all, i think it was a pretty poor decision to make them be the same thing... i liked celaena but i can barely read aelyns chapters...i also hate rowan but i cant tell hes a wasted character cause he isnt
georgina and hollyn- for being part of the royal family they dont appear...well, never( does hollyn even have any lines?). i wouldnt be pointing this out(since they appear to be secondary characters) if it wasnt for the fact that things dorian says point to hollyn being at least part-valg, which is never adressed again.
so yeah, these are my opinion on wasted characters, do reply with you guys opinion, thanks
