Sidekicks are the assistants of superheroes and are people who strive to become superheroes themselves.
|“||Sidekicks are exhausted because they take on all the difficult tasks under the shade of the superheroes. But they're dreaming of the day they can wear honourable capes.||”|
Supublics that are successful in the Sidekick-Hero course at Justice College get chosen to become the sidekick of a hero. Sidekicks help their master hero in handling the complaints of citizens, dealing with villains and other (often menial) tasks. If a sidekick's master hero gives their approval (and all their points are added up) then the Committee promotes them into a superhero.
Despite generally being picked from the Justice College, superheroes can pick almost anyone to become their sidekick. For example, Camilla's sidekick, One-Eyed Shadow, is a reformed villain and Darkslug's second sidekick, Blackhound, was a Justice College dropout as well as someone once sentenced to execution by the Committee.
Sidekicks are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and are expected to respond to villain alerts regardless of all else.
