The Captain is a fictional main character in the webcomic series Romantically Apocalyptic by Vitaly S Alexius. Set in a dystopian future world where nuclear war (hinted to be started by the Captain) between humans and sentient artificial intelligences has devastated the planet, Captain is in command of a motley crew of survivors, whom he refers to as his "minions", as they try to claw out a living in the wasteland.
Captain is usually seen in a black trench coat which covers most of his body and is assumed to be radiation proof, quite handy in a world ravaged by nuclear war. He also wears a black scarf like garment and gloves as well as lace up shoes. Captain's most noticeable trait is his custom black gas mask complete with binocular-esque purple eyepieces. He also wears what appears to be a military officer's cap with a red star on it. The Captain is most commonly seen holding a black and white mug with a picture of a red heart on it. This mug is usually filled with hot tea, although how he drinks it without removing his mask is a mystery. His angry face, when seen, is known to cause heads to explode. The viewer of the comic is never shown his face like Pilot, but unlike Snippy and Engineer, whose faces are partially, but never fully seen.
The Captian is eccentric to the point of being insane. He is inconsistant about his gender and is known to talk to skeletons. His main trait is being completely random in the way he talks and acts. He also sends his subordinates (minions) on fanciful or dangerous missions just for his amusement. Despite this he is known to go out of his way to bail his crew out of trouble such as rescuing Mr.Snippy from an alien abduction.
