We've had a bit of disagreement over the definition of "minion" (for which see Talk:Dimitri Vapnoople and Category talk:Wulfenbach minions), and I think it would be best if we agreed on a standard definition; right now some characters in Wulfenbach service under duress are listed as minions, others aren't, and some of the Wulfenbach Jaegers' pages have disclaimers on them.

Myself, I tend to think of minionhood as denoting where one gets one's orders. It's simple, it's straightforward, and it doesn't require disentangling the often complicated question of true loyalties. Particularly where the Wulfenbach Jaegers are concerned.

Those with concealed allegiances elsewhere, like Tiktoffen and early!Wooster, are kind of a gray area, but I'd incline toward including them, since they wouldn't be very effective agents if they didn't usually do what they were told.

What does everyone else think?

Someone needed to make a forum for all this Hero/Villain/Neutral disscussion, so that this page can be saved for the minion stuff. I took the liberty of doing so, and the link can be found here. HeterodyneGirl (talk) 20:20, February 4, 2013 (UTC)
