Kalor Varkesh is a Netherwyrm that once roamed the Deep Void but he was captured by the High Empire and his carcass transformed into a very unique spacecraft, capable of moving unlike most artificial constructs. It was originally captained by High Legatifex Kimleigh, who was an adorer of all creatures great and small, but after her death the ship became the command of High Legatifex Astrid instead. Kalor Varkesh has consistently been used in the pursuit of Indigo Shade.


Kalor Varkesh is a dragon in form with grey, smoking scales - as though it has just been burnt by fire - and has aethereal, black wings that are only visible in the black of space when cast against starry background. Its ribs protrude from the skin and are as ashen as the scales. It has an immensely sized head[Tales 1].
