The Captain is an enemy from Final Fantasy II. An advanced soldier of Palamecia, Captains prowl the streets of Fynn and decks of the Dreadnought in NPC form. They can be spoken to initiate a battle, but doing this in the early stages of the game is not recommended due to the Captains' high power. If the player does manage to defeat a Captain while at lower levels, they may obtain a Flame Bow or a suit of Golden Armor, two advanced pieces of equipment that help in several of the game's early dungeons. The Curse Tome provides a nice debuff spell to have early should the player opt not to use the Ancient Sword found in the Snow Cave. However, even if the player does defeat the Captains, they will not be removed from the field, and, as such, the areas they block off remain inaccsessible.
Captains can use the Bow 3 attack to strike while out of range of the party's physical attacks.
