The “Hazeroth Raider” is not a single ship type, but a collective designation for the sort of fast attack vessels preferred by raiders and privateers. Like most raiders, the Savage is an idiosyncratic design, its original builders and specifications lost to time. Some previous owner has upgraded the vessel at great expense for long-range exploration, with powerful scanners and a Warpsbane hull. Gleaming in untarnished gold, and with the proud figurehead of a feral-world Saint atop its prow, the Savage itself seems to yearn for the great unexplored expanse.
The ship’s last captain was involved with Cold Trade smuggling in the Calixis Sector, which led to the attention of the Inquisition and his interdiction by the Imperial Navy. The salvaged vessel was brought to Port Wander, and has spent the last few years being rebuilt. The Savage draws attention beyond its modest size and armament, making it precisely the sort of ship an ambitious Rogue Trader would want to build his reputation.
