Stealth Brand is a move that can be achieved by HOLDING cn_RT to sneak and then PRESSING cn_B when close to your target provided that you are hidden (not in combat).

Normally, captains must have GREEN HEALTH before they can be branded. So you will need to attack the captain to reduce his health to this level first. You will then need to break the line of sight from the captain and any other enemies so that you can engage in stealth attacks.

When you attempt to Stealth Brand, the captains do counter very often so it may take a number of attempts. The simplest way around this is to activate the power of the ring (cn_LS + cn_RS) as this makes you invisible for a limited time; you can then try constantly to Stealth Brand.

UPDATE - If a captain is vulnerable to stealth finishers you can stealth brand without having to lower his health at all (thanks steven727 and SubtleEel4 for pointing this out in the comments).
