No hero can stand victorious when standing alone. Behind the hero, propping them up and aiding them in their quests is a cast of friends, allies, beasts, and of course, the humble squire. Every great hero needs a sidekick. Now with the first in a series of sidekick classes for D&D 5e, you can grant your players a legendary squire, a honorable and dignified retainer who is unafraid to join in on the battle. Taking inspiration from the heroic actions of their allies, and from the legends and tales of old, they strike fearlessly, and can open holes in an enemy’s defenses while protecting their allies with a sturdy shield.
