The Army of Califa officer corps is divided into two branches: staff and line.
Staff officers, also known as "yaller dogs", are detached from their
regiments to perform administrative duties, and are assisted by staff
clerks chosen from the enlisted ranks. They are not very popular with
the Line officers, who believe they are trying to shirk actual danger.
Most loathed of all the yaller dogs is
the aide de camp, or ADC. ADCs are assigned directly to high ranking
officers and are really just glorified servants. To the rest of the
Army, they are nothing more than lapdogs.
