Faith of Jacob and Captured Heroes

Can Faith of Jacob (in spoiler) take captured heroes? I'm wondering because it just says "in an opponent's territory." LoB is in territory, and according to the "Captured" entry in the REG,
"A capture effect transforms a character into a captured character and moves it to a different location where it is held captive. Heroes become captured Heroes and Evil Characters become captured Evil Characters."
To me, it seems they are still heroes in a territory, so is this a legal target?

Captured heroes are not heroes though.  They do not get discarded with Wrath of Satan, etc.

Thanks. I figured that was the case, but the wording and REG are not super clear about this.

Not only that but they are treated as lost souls, so unless an ability specifically targets a captured hero/character or a lost soul then a card like Faith of Jacob cannot target a captured hero.
