5th Edition FAQ pg3, indicatesThe new codex doesn't really say, it just lists the Senior or Junior Officer as a member of the unit.A Command Squad is an independent character and his retinue.
My question is, Can the Officer be singled out in CC, like other Independent Characters?
What he said above. Basically, the FAQ is referring to 4th edition IG in which the officers in a Command Squad are Independent Characters. But in 5th IG, that is no longer the case. Actually, you're find that GW is moving away from retinue squads in all the newer codices. They only exist now in 4th edition or older codices.
Moreover, Regimental Advisors and characters like Creed, Kell, & Straken are now upgrade characters and not Independent Characters.
