Built as part of the Emerald Queen’s armada that attacked Krondor in the height of the Serpent War, she was one of only a handful that survived. After the war, she returned to Novindus where, she was refit to be a merchant vessel.
She made her first peace-time journey to Triagia 8 years after the war: a year-long round-trip journey to the Keshan port city of Farafra. She first landed at Taroom, and followed the coast, hitting the major ports along the way, before returning home.
After minor adjustments for speed, she made a speed-trial run. This constituted another trip, this time heading directly to Farafra, quickly off-loaded, re-loaded and returned home. The round trip took only 4 months.
The speed trial a resounding success, she is on her third trade voyage, this time returning to Krondor.
