Are Princeps moral officers, generals, or something else entirely?

In the Republican Roman army, between the reforms of Camillius and Marius, the legions were split into maniples of 120 each. The legionaries either belonged to the leves/velites, hastati, principes, and triarii group of the legion, and each legion had 10 maniples of each group.

Principes where the main fighters of the legion, formed from adult men in their thirties or so. They carried out the main fighting, after the velites had skirmished and the hastati had fought.

Principes were heavy infantry swordsmen in the armies of the Roman republic.
