Duke Lance Stalwart is a pirate, but a noble one, if you can imagine such a thing. He has the fastest ship in the galaxy and a crew of 15 loyal men and one robot. The ship is called the Silver Dagger because it's made of a shiny silver metal and has Lance's royal insignia emblazon onto the sides. Lance's insignia is that of an upturned dagger. The ship was originally built as a pleasure yacht but after the start of the great war it was outfitted with experimental blue streak engines and Murcian Navy armaments. It is the one ship that is feared by both the merchant ships and the Royal Navy of the Murcian Empire because of its uncanny ability to isolate and plunder the heavy laden treasure ships of the Murcian Empire and then disappear without a trace.
