History

During the Middle Ages a Retainer refereed to a person, more specifically, a soldier in service to a Lord.

Within Belegarth

Retainership is offering allegiance and service to a knight or squire. Often this is done to learn from and study with a chosen fighter and prepare for a squireship. Retainer is a job title, much like squire. Service, learning, study and hard work are expected.

Wolfpack Retainers
From Sir Kyrian Hawksword
In Wolfpack, the retainer program was specifically geared towards new members as a type of sponsorship/mentorship program. In my mind, this has been a pretty successful program:

a) Knights and their equivalents are allowed 2 retainers while squires are allowed 1.

b) The retainer must not be affiliated with a unit.

c) The program lasts for no more than 4 months/1 semester of attendance.

d) A retainer may choose to leave at any time during the retainership either voluntarily or by affiliating with a unit.

e) The knight/squire would be responsible for making sure the retainers obtain basic garb and equipment.

f) During battles other than unit battles, the retainers fight alongside their knight or squire and go with their knight if picked for a team. However, marshals may rebalance the teams if needed. A retainer would not fight with the knight or squire during unit battles
