Default XV88 Shas'vre question

OK I have a really stupid question:

Are XV88 Shas'vre monats independent characters? I didn't think they were but the 5th BOB isn't incredibly clear to me on this. Any help is apreciated and thanks.

I'm afraid that calmsword is completely incorrect on this issue; an XV88 Shas'Vre, whether a monat or otherwise, is not an Independent Character. It is an upgrade character, as described under the second bullet point on page 47 of the rulebook. Whilst they are a character, and, as monats, are used in units of one, they do not have the Independent Character rule and thus are not treated as such.

Likewise, a Team Leader is just an upgrade character, though a lesser version than a Shas'Vre.

Masked is 100% right.

Incidendly you don't even need to upgrade them to team leader/'vre for them to be monat.
