Thanks for bringing these points to my attention.
-Technically, three Caesars or two Caesars and a Bishop could mate a lone
Caesar (King), but this would be difficult to do against any opponent who
has even a little chess savvy.
-Yes, a Centurion can capture a Caesar with an initial double pawn move. 
This makes the Centurion a unique threat with respect to the Caesars.
-Castling is not permitted.  En passant captures are not permitted.  Pawn
promotion to a Caesar (Knight) is also not permitted.
