The heart and soul of a unit.
This one has lost all his soldiers.

Commanders are the hearts and souls of units. If a commander dies, his whole unit is lost permanently. Commanders can be killed even though some of their unit soldiers might still be alive, make sure to not accidentally get them separated.
Even if all soldiers of a commander die in battle, they will be regenerated on the next island or after regenerating in a house on the island for a specific time. As such, make sure that your commanders always survive!

New commanders can be recruited on islands that have little flags under them, which indicates that this island is this commanders home island. Commanders cannot flee from their home islands, make sure to bring enough support to win the island if you want to recruit the commander! (Note, that you will only be allowed to bring up to three units of your own, instead of the usual 4, if you fight on an island with a local commander. The local commander will automatically be the 4th unit.)

Commanders usually come with a number of coins already (to level them up quicker) and a unit of Recruits, though some may have a specific unit class preset, like Infantry, Pikes or Archers.

Commanders can be given items, choose wisely, as items cannot be removed once added to a unit.
