--taken from the wikipedia entry for "squire"

In medieval times a squire was a man-at-arms in the service of a knight, often as his apprentice.

The English squire comes from the Old French escuier, itself derived from the Late Latin scutarius - "shield bearer." The Latin equivalent is armiger.

A squire was originally a person who aspired to the rank of knighthood and who, as part of his development to that end, served an existing knight as his attendant or shield carrier (hence the name). However, during the middle ages the rank of esquire came to be recognized in its own right and, once knighthood ceased to be conferred by any but the monarch, it was no longer to be assumed that any esquire would in due course progress to be a knight. The connection between a squire and any particular knight also ceased to exist, as did any shield carrying duties.

Within Belegarth

A Squire is often given specific tasks to complete before being knighted. See Squire Tasks for examples. Common trials for squires involve weapons construction, combat endurance, and combat proficiency. Squires will also commit to service, volunteering at Events and performing duties in their Realm.
To denote their rank, a white tabbard, usually adorned with their knight's heraldry, will be worn. Sir Martin of Numenor was the first to wear the white and Sir Angmarth of Numenor was the first to adorn his tabard with his knight's heraldry. Some lineages of knights prefer war banners or other variations to indicate status.

An Apprentice is also given specific tasks to complete before being made a Warmaster.

"Warmaster is a title that was created to specifically recognize monsters who have already contributed to the Belegarth community & shown great prowess on the field, or those monsters who show the potential to. While each Warmaster has different things they're looking for in their apprentices, a driving theme is the ability to drop an apprentice anywhere in the country and have them start a functioning and successful realm." ~ The Warmaster's Wiki Page

Warmaster Soo Ma Tai was titled by Sir Cedric and created the Peerage of the Warmasters.

For those on the path to peerage in the Guilds, please see the Artificer Guild, Chronicler Guild, and Seneschal Guild pages.
