Void Tearer is one of the oldest ships in the Vross Dynasty’s fleet. Despite its diminutive size, the ship has been favoured by many of the family’s historic Lord Captain’s.
It personifies the Big Dick Energy of Abel Vross.
Void Tearer has a reputation as a rugged and durable ship (some even claim indestructable) based off the number of times it has seemed to shrug off damage that could have ended ships twice its size. Less savoury rumours about Void Tearer maintain that the deeper decks are sometimes host to lingering souls of previous inhabitants.
In recent generations Void Tearer has been somewhat neglected by the family due to it’s stubborn machine spirit. The ship was captained by Neriah Vross briefly between M41.722 and M41.734 but was heavily damaged in the Battle of Praetor Reach. The ship spent a decade in dry dock and after that was only used occasionally for cargo runs. This changed when Abel Vross inherited the Warrant of Trade in M41.815 and chose to take Void Tearer as his flag ship – the ship’s first true captain in 82 years. It’s yet to be seen if this will be a new era of glory for Void Tearer or a closing chapter in it’s long life.
Since Abel took over as Captain the ship has been exploring the Koronus Expanse and has endured a number of battles. On the 7th Junius 817.M41 the Void Tearer departed from a meeting with Captain Isaac Vross and was not seen again for over three years. The ship re-emerged on 20th Augustus 820.M41 but the turbulent journey fatally wounded the ship’s navigator and forced the astropath to begin an induced hibernation.
