The RiverHawk is a unique ship. She'd been passed along several smugglers up and down the Eren River in the last 75 years until Granger won her in a knife game/fight with a Miransil pirate named Tallo Breeze. Captain Gallo was surprised to find that in the RiverHawk's hold lay a dying Oruk whom he nursed back to health (at first in fear) then later becoming friends. Gallo gathered a crew, as many as 16 different mates have come and gone in the last 8 years but the group has recently settled for the past 6 months. The RiverHawk is also unique in it's construction, built much like a Gnome Barque ship it was retro-fitted at some point by Tallo Breeze to include a Current-seeker rudder system. She features twin hulls with a mesh platform, made with additions of crafted ogrewood planks. Known in smuggling circles as the fastest, river-going craft on the Eren used as courier, light trader and passenger transport.

*Current-seekers are a kind of scooped, deployable rudder that lets the ship unerringly follow ocean currents as if traveling with a flowing river, this creates an even faster and much more dangerous river speed when used.

PS. the "ages" noted are that age for whatever it should be per race)
