I am a bit confused by the fada i here. why is it needed and would fada e also work since we don't know either person's gender?

This is saying that the captain is a female friend.

Also, this sentence is backwards. This sentence reads "The captain is my friend", not "My friend is the captain". You can see here the subject comes at the end
