Captain Shears is a character appearing in the manga Farewell, Beloved Falco. He is a Cornerian army captain who runs a base on Titania. In truth, Captain Shears is one of Andross's henchmen.
Captain Shears at first appears to be what you would expect an officer to be when he and Fox McCloud meet up: kind and respectful, though competent, brave, and determined. However, Shears is truly insane. He relished his work in using Andross's DNA so the mad Venomian emperor would rise to his former glory, which Fox and his team attempted to stop after their discovery of Shears was doing in his base. He even went as far as to kill Fox for trying to stop him when Fox McCloud and his team found out what Shears was REALLY doing.
Captain Shears slightly resembles General Pepper. He wears glasses, just like General Pepper does in his Star Fox 2 appearance. Captain Shears is brown in colour, and his weapon of choice is a rapier, as seen when he and Fox McCloud fight at the manga's climax. He uses a Titania river boar as a steed.
