Captain was a rank within the original Five Hundred Companions. Each captain commanded his own longboat and its crew of average 20–24 men.


Merethic EraEdit

After reaching Mereth and reclaiming Saarthal, the Circle of Captains was assembled. Despite Ysgramor being Harbinger, leader of the Five Hundred, it was decided that each captain and his crew should walk their own paths. Thus captains became largely independent.

Fourth EraEdit

During the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the Fourth Era Companions do not use such a rank. It is possible that it faded away with the need of longboats as Companions gained footing in Skyrim. However, the idea of the Circle was still kept.
