Fleet Captains are not only formidable fighters armed with the finest equipment aboard their vessels, but are also powerful Vampires who use dark forms of magic to hurt their enemies or regenerate their Undead minions. Like their Vampire Admiral counterparts, some trace their origins back to Sylvania or were once seafaring swashbucklers who now fight in service of the Undead. Although typically associated with a Vampire Admiral, Fleet Captains are subordinate to no-one and are driven by the same base instincts as all other Vampires. Their immortality means they have had extensive time to hone their skills, making them feared combatants. In the swirling melee of battle they are first into the fray, often seeking out opponents to duel in single combat. As mayhem rages all around, the clank of their cursed cutlasses chime out as they surge forward – after all, to a bloodthirsty Vampire, there is no surer way to cripple the morale of an opposing crew than to leave their master dead and bleeding.
