The Vena Cava is a five-masted Minotaur-made greatship. As a sign to its construction, the Vena Cava has a prominent naval ram protruding from under the bow of the vessel. This is done to accomodate the style of bow-to-deck boarding actions that Minotaurs favour, aiming to disable the opposing ship rather than sink it, allowing for a rushed charged from the crew. As such the bowsprit of the Vena Cava is noticiably more vertical than most greatship’s, so as to divert the rigging above both heads and horns near the vessel’s front. Yet, the Vena Cava has since passed from the Minotaur hands of its construction, falling in with pirates under its one-time Ship’s MasterBjordin. Under the mixture of races that additionally made up its former crew, the Quartermaster Twingo saw to outfitting the Vena Cava with a set of Dragonspyre Canons and complimentary collection of seagulls. Whilst the Dragonspyre’s provide much needed firepower, the curious rigging of seagulls to the vessel grants the Vena Cava a beneficial thrust.
