Or Heroes (plural). Every player in HW plays a hero - they don't follow each other, they have their own followers.

So the heroes' followers have the purpose 'follow the hero', but the Heroes themselves are a bit of a motley crew ... aren't they?

I suppose they should. I put up a message on the glorantha list (which hasn't come up yet) about hypocrisy wondering just how self-serving individual heroes might be.
