Contributions: L-classes are the class that keeps up the upkeep of notail buildings, mainly residential buildings. L-classes send info to the higher-ups about their resident's current feelings about the state of affairs so that higher-ups know when they're making mistakes in the area. L-classes also make sure their residents are safe and sound, mostly anyway.

From a young age, the landlord class watches over others and locations. It seems strange to think that one of the top notail classes starts life as a mere maid for the shared household they live in as children. The L-class works with the W-aiter class and metaparxis to take care of the household, making sure it's clean, in working order and reporting anything off to their local M-atriarch class. L-classes are known for their ability to remember people, and events related to them. This is a trait L-classes use later to figure out if certain tenants are the type of people who are likely to cause drama or make a mess.
L-classes are fairly judgy, just the way someone walks into their office can be enough for them to feel they can declare if the person can move into their living spaces or not.
Their time in the woods is all about picking out a good location and holding down the fort so that other notails can live under their protection and thus get paid in food and supplies they need. It is at this time that L-classes must learn to take the dominant position and hold their ground. An L-class who gets scared and doesn't put their foot down when tenants or outsiders attempt to take over is considered not worthy of their position. With the highest death ratio, just over 50% of L-classes will be killed in the woods, mainly due to fights with other L-classes, R-anger classes, and animals. Those who do survive enjoy showing off the scars they've gain in their fights.
Once they exit the woods they work under a much older L-class, helping and learning from them. If the L-class dies the younger L-class will normally take their place but some L-classes will instead move on to totally new apartments or pick one they want to work at.
L-classes are eccentric, to say the least. L-classes are the only class that by default wears non-monotone clothes. L-classes make sure people know who they are with flashy clothes and masks, sometimes spending the money they make on extremely elaborate masks made of rare metals. They way they act is as flashy as their clothes, with many being loud, motivated, and excitable. L-classes run minor and rather strange experiments on their tenants, as well as sometimes requesting strange things along with rent payments.
L-classes are not as manipulative as one would expect them to be. They make it clear in their lease agreements what type of tests they plan on doing so there's not much of a surprise unless the lease itself says the test will not be noted. While there are definitely certain lease agreements that ask for rather unethical items such as a child these lease agreements are few and far between. After all, L-classes aren't about hurting their tenants but protecting them.
Below is a list of examples of places L-classes rented out and the rent or tests they required to be agreed to so one can get a feel of what to expect when renting from an L-class.
L-ocal: This type of L-class solely works with other notails, but their tenants aren't just average notails they're notails who need help in one way or another. Whether they are notails who have gone through an accident or notails who are ill in one way or another, these apartments are places of recovery that allow the notail to not feel stressed. This type of L-class mildly messes with the mood of these notails, making them much more docile and unlikely to re-harm themselves until they can leave. Many who go through this event can barely remember their stay.
L-unar: This L-classes only work on other planets with their tenants mainly being aliens. These notails work only in metaparxi buildings while younger and never get to go into the woods. Instead, they are automatically sent to study under another L-class on another planet. These L-classes hold their ground more often and are extremely intimidating. It's a common misconception that all L-classes seen off notail planets are L-unar classed, but this is untrue. L-unar classes are only about 10% the out of planet L-classes, showing up on planets with more aggressive species.
Normal G-class apartment complex: Tenants were required to take pictures of their hands every day, just one missed image caused automatic eviction. If a tenant took extra pictures throughout the day of their hands because they feared forgetting those too must be submitted. The experiment ended up getting 300% more hand pictures than required.
Rather tall apartment building: All tenants applying for housing had to be scared of elevators. The apartment did not have staircases, only elevators. Tenants were interviewed every month to see if their fear lessened or got worse.
Apartment that disallowed pets: Tenants were given a cat as part of the lease agreement and were told the apartments could do anything to the cat. Tenants expressed deep pain when their cat was replaced with another cat at the end of the month. The test continued to replace the cats at the end of every month. Tenants went from experiencing shock and pain to accepting the replacement of their cats as a fact of life.
Apartment in a shady part of town: Tenants were informed they would have a roommate with them in the house and to expect them to mess with the tenant. When they entered their house there was no roommate to be found. Items would be moved around when the tenant exited the house. Paranoia skyrocketed.
Rather normal apartment: Tenants are required to give up one child per year to the apartment complex. As expected only species who had large batches of children moved in.
Group of housing units: All tenants were required to be birds. All feathers would be removed upon signing the lease. Not an experiment the L-class just wanted to make pillows out of their feathers and sell them.
Very upscale complex: Tenants as part of their rent were required to donate 30,000p every month and record where they sent it. Data ended up including charities, people on the streets, and relatives.
Large apartment in a mixed religious area: The first half of tenants told to keep a daily journal and record their thought. The second half of tenants were required to pray every morning in front of a statue in the lobby as well as come two days out of the week to listen to a sermon about their god, the lobby statue. About 40% of the first half of tenants ended up joining in prayer after months.
Notail control: L-classes are better at controlling other lower ranking notails once they reach adulthood. Their antennas allow them to pacify notails more easily, allowing them to break up fights in the apartment until they can find a solution.
• Young L-classes and R-anger classes clash in the woods as both classes protect tracks of land. These clashes can pave the way to a long-term friendship if they realize that collaboration between the two is possible.
• L-class notails can be seen even outside of their homeworld, and while many aliens complain about their odd set of rules, such as owing them their firstborn, or how they must pay a piece of skin along with their normal bills, they do have to agree that their prices tend to be lower, and their areas' apartments are much cleaner.
• Many feel that L-classes prey on those with lower income, and to an extent that is true. L-classes are more prone to having cheap housing which attracts people who may not want to be recorded or experimented on but have nowhere else to go.
