Authority means:

 1. the power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience.

The paragraph in your question talks about a "sidekick". This is a person that usually helps a "superhero". Therefore, the phrase "Someone has less authority than you" means that the other person (e.g 'Someone', 'sidekick', 'Sarah', etc) has less power that you.
