Edge of the Abyss
Mistress Aspyce Chorda: The Chorda lineage is descended from pirates, its descendants distinguished from those hunted by Battlefleet Calaxis only by their Warrant of Trade and noble birth. It is said that Aspyce is the worst of the lot and that as a young woman she hunted down and imprisoned her siblings in cyrovaults so the Warrant of Trade was hers alone. Today she is a cold, ruthless woman who never hesitates to remind others why they should be terrified of her. Her line is an enemy of the Winterscale Dynasty and in 785.M41 she fought a minor war with the dynasty, brutally heedless of the cost to her crews. She commands the Revenge of Chardis, a Firestorm class frigate as well as a small squadron of raiders.
