Notes:

– Only Orochi and Niles can use the Capture command thanks to their Personal Skills, Hoshidan Capture and Nohrian Restraint. However, you can only capture units using it when you have a Prison built inside your My Castle.
– You can convince units in Prison to join your party by spending resources on them or you can have one of your characters try to convince them for a lower resource cost.
– Paralogues 1 through 6 are available in all routes; Paralogues 7 through 14 are only available in Birthright and Revelations; Paralogues 15 through 22 are only available in Conquest and Revelations; Keep that in mind when trying to capture bosses from a specific paralogue chapter.
