The Captisons and the Thanases were an important political family of Bakura, containing several senators and prime ministers. The Captisons may have been descendants of Arden, founder of Bakura; he was hinted at being either grandfather or great-grandfather of Dol and Yeorg.
The Captison family, like the majority of Bakurans, were all adherents of the Religion of the Cosmic Balance. Of exceptional note among the family were:
- Yeorg Captison, senator and prime minister
- Tiree Captison, his wife
- Dol Captison, Yeorg's brother, senator
- Marga Captison, Dol's wife
