–Noble Captain leading procession

Noble Captains are elite members of the United Cities. Due to their title, it is unknown if they are in fact low-ranking nobles themselves, or simply veteran Noble Guards.

Regardless, they can be found in Stormgap Coast, The Great Desert, and The Hook, leading the entourage of Noble Hunters, shouting down any in their path. 

If a character gets too close and stops moving, the captains will consider them as terrorists and attack, if the Noble Hunter hasn't already attacked them first.

Despite holding an arguably more important position within the UC's hierarchy, Noble Captains are not as well equipped as Samurai Captains (with a 5% less chance of being equipped with better gear), though they are equally skilled in combat.

They wear [High] armour (5% chance of [Specialist]) and have weapons manufactured by Skeleton Smiths.
