By the time when captain becomes colonel, he is usually seasoned veteran. Despite the fact that in theory you can get promoted to colonel after serving five or six years in some peaceful place, practically there is not peaceful places in the Wesnoth. In the central regions of country the Royal Army opposed by robbers, rebels and criminal syndicates, while on borders it opposed by orcs, elves and undeads. Only one of five captains manages to become colonel while rest will die or resigns to choose peaceful work. On the other hand, most of ones who become colonels are true heroes. Although colonel's work is headquaters meetings or command of castle's garrison, if necessary to fight personally, then colonel won't concede to any of his subordinates.
