Affinity is assigned as the primary personal transport for the Deputy Grand Master of the Brotherhood. It is assigned to the 3rd Task Force of the Iron Fleet but is mainly deployed alone under the direct control of the DGM. When deployed with the main battle line, the ship primarily provides close support for the Vindicator-class Heavy Cruiser Terigon.
Originally manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards for the Galactic Empire, the vessel was heavily damaged to a point it was longer spaceworthy during the Galactic Civil War, and during the fallout after the death of Emperor Palpatine was sold in bulk to a scrapyard. The structural hull of the Affinity was later acquired by Arx Capital Exchange in a badly damaged condition from the scrap yard and transported to Mattock Station above Arx and assessed where it was determined repairs were possible.
When Berth Seven-Krill opened on Mattock Station the ships structural hull was moved and repairs began. With success of hit and run missions of the Raider II-class Corvette Benediction in the 3rd Task Force, it was being re-built as a sister ship to carry out similar missions. However, when the Deputy Grand Master at the time, Morgan B. Sorenn was called on for a special assignment to protect Brotherhood interests she took the Vindicator-class Heavy Cruiser Limbo which she was in command of at the time. Evant Taelyan, the Regent of the Brotherhood was elevated to the role of Deputy Grand Master in her place and needed a ship to carry out his task of unifying the Clans. His review of the work going on at his station showed the Affinity to be the closest to completion to fit his needs.
The ship was constructed with the latest technology available to the Brotherhood at the time, with advanced computer systems and networking. When Evant took personal oversight of the last steps in construction, he saw to it that the ship was integrated with the Brotherhood networks including the Inquisitorius and Shadow Academy Society, allowing him access to any information he wants at his fingertips from the bridge.

Affinity serves as the personal ship for the Deputy Grand Master, Evant Taelyan under his direct command to assist in unifying the Clans of the Brotherhood. In this role, although the ship is part of Task Force 3, it is generally unavailable due to the assignment but will provide close support to the Vindicator-class Heavy Cruiser Terigon when deployed with the main line.
