A captain is selected from the officer in the first unit in the army stack. That officer's model is temporarily replaced by the captain model for the faction, but the officer still behaves nearly exactly as a normal soldier in the unit.
Captains have no stats, but can still use the rally troops ability of generals, and their deaths still affect the army morale exactly like a general's.
Captains lack many of the functions of generals on the strategy map, being unable to construct forts and watchtowers or serve as settlement governors.
