This article or section contains lore taken from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, the manuals, and/or official bonus maps.

Captains are elite variants of the footmen that helped lead Alliance troops in the Third war. The brave captains did what they could to defend Lordaeron against the Scourge with Arthas.

Appearances

The Captain helping Arthas was split into Falric and Marwyn, which assisted Prince Arthas throughout his campaign all the way to Northrend, and Luc Valonforth who joined them later. All three of them appear in World of Warcraft, which in addition depicts an anonymous Lordaeron Captain and several Forgotten Captains which also helped managed the forces of the 1st Legion.
