Knight Apprentice Shinly


Shinly's dazzling blonde curls waft in the breeze as she walks, the onlookers sneering as they gaze at her. Amongst the attendees of the knight's academy, there are none more "on their high horse" than her. She views everyone as beneath her, and never yields when someone else is in her path, as she claims to be the noblest of knights. Though others find her obstinate attitude irritating, none truly detest her, for they know that her cocksure smile is well-deserved.

Name originEdit

Knights Apprentice are also called squire(s). Beginning in the Middle Ages, a squire was the shield- or armour-bearer of a knight. At times, squires acted as a knight’s errand runner or servant. Use of the term evolved over time. Initially, squires were a knight’s trainees/apprentices. Later, a village leader or a lord of the manor might be called a squire, and still later, the term applied to key public figures, such as justices of the peace or members of parliament. In contemporary American usage, squire is the title given to justices of the peace or similar local dignitaries. Squire is a shortened version of the word esquire, from the Old French escuier (modern French écuyer), itself derived from the Late Latin scutarius ("shield bearer"), in medieval or Old English a scutifer. The Classical Latin equivalent was armiger, "arms bearer".
