Banu Merchantman

Banu Merchantman

The Banu Merchantman is a trading ship capable of landing or docking and then inviting locals in to view what it’s cargo holds have to offer. The ship design, perfected by generations of Banu development, is intended to offer a combination of high speed and durability. While the Banu is less configurable than a Caterpillar or a Starfarer, there’s still plenty of room to take the ship in different directions.

Named after the mythological ferryman of the dead, and the system it hails from. Passed on to Silas Sinclair by the now deceased Essouli that purchased him from a Banu slaver.

Avarice is perhaps the most ancient Merchantman still in operation.

Most recently favoring trade along the Banu, Xi'an, and UEE borders, Avarice has been traveling the known universe for at least 11 generations of Banu -- exactly how many before that is unknown, as the timelines quickly become clouded.

El Guapo, the good looking one, the Banu Merchantman! The trader and the market all in one.  It's one of my favorites.  I manage to get this one through a bet against a Drunken Banu during a game of cards.  How else could I get one!  It's a generational entity within the Banu's.
