Meiyerditch citizen is a vague term given to NPC residents of Meiyerditch. They have white skin and hair and are seen throughout Meiyerditch. Meiyerditch citizens are forced to give blood tithes or do menial work for the vampyres who dominate the Sanguinesti region of south-eastern Morytania.
If spoken to, Meiyerditch citizens can help players by sharing what they know of The Myreque, explaining the nature of the ghetto city, or sharing their knowledge about what sector of the city the player is currently in.
Players need to talk to a Citizen during Darkness of Hallowvale to find the way to the Myreque headquarters in Meiyerditch. During the quest players need to whisper to them about the Myreque and then be guided to Old Man Ral.

"Citizen" was a term of address used occasionally around the time of the Galactic Civil War. It preceded the addressee's surname as a title. It denoted civilian status in place of a military rank. For example, Morgan Katarn referred to a Sulonian woman whose surname was Roskin as "Citizen Roskin". It was also used as a generic term of address directed at people whose names were not known to the speaker. In this case, the speaker would simply use "Citizen".
Because of its civilian connotations, the term could be considered as a half-veiled insult when used against a former or retired military officer, indicating that one is no longer worthy of rank. It could also sometimes be used as a term of respect, as if to "elevate" a mere civilian who aids the military to a kind of unofficial rank. Shortly before his death, Katarn was himself referred to, albeit more as an act of mocking, as "Citizen Katarn" by Jerec who eventually beheaded Katarn and had his head placed in a stake.
