I don't think that I really get the flavor behind the squire role. The squire is on the werewolf team and knows who the werewolves are and gets to check their cards.

Why is a squire on the werewolf team? Usually squires work for knights, who I would imagine would oppose werewolves.

Also, isn't the squire almost exactly like the minion (except he gets to check the role cards)? It feels a bit redundant.

Thanks in advance!

I was thinking the same thing thematically. When you see the name "Squire" you think, good guy. He must be like an apprentice seer or something.

I guess the logic is he is not squiring to be a knight, but squiring to be a werewolf some day. So if he serves them well, he can join them.
But like you mentioned, it sounds more like a minion.

He's definitely a souped up version of the Minion, and is meant for basically high-player epic games to give the Werewolves an edge if they're not doing too well.

As for Flavor, though, I'm not sure why they went with Squire, and drew him like he his. I think Mike there has the right idea as to what he is doing ("squiring to be a werewolf") but honestly, I can't think of whatever else to call him.

Agreed the name "Squire" doesn't fit the role and theme. I do have a name they could have used instead. I think Werecub or Fledgling could have worked for this role.

Re: Flavor behind Squire Role - Big Misunderstanding
Ummmm, this might help. Squire is on the village team.

Incorrect. He is on the Werewolves team.

I agree, the flavor behind this is very puzzling.
