English term or phrase:spear-carrier
“I thought perhaps he might be a member of the guild (i.e. the caste of actors), a spear-carrier who thinks himself a Kean and hates me for my reputation and my successes.”
could this "spear-carrier" happen to mean an aggressive person, outside its literal meaning?
