ISN Vader is the flag of the Second Flotilla of the Imperial Scholae Navy, and of the Grand Vizier of Clan Scholae Palatinae, Dr. Elincia Rei. The Venator-class Star Destroyer is a versatile multi-role carrier primarily tasked with leading the offensive in large scale battles. It was stolen by Jorm Na'trej for the Imperial Scholae Navy in 34 ABY.
Brief details about what happened to the old fleet here.
The ISN Vader, formerly known as EESD Swarm Lord, was stolen from the New Republic's Tiranu decommissioning yard by forces of Scholae Palatinae.
The action was spearheaded by Lexiconus Qor, Shadow Nighthunter and Rosh Nyine using a pretense, who used their combined talents to sow confusion and malfunctions on the yard, covering for a second team.
That team - consisting of Reiden Karr, Wagglehorn, Chrome and the plan's mastermind Jorm Na'trej - infiltrated the then depopulated Swarm Lord through their engine section, overtaking critical functions.
Severing the connections to the station covered by the induced malfunctions allowed the team to perform a low blow against the Swarm Lord's skeleton crew using the vessel's artificial gravity.
Subsequently, the infiltrators allowed a prize crew of Scholae including the first team to board with stealth ships, and vacated the system.
Weapons and Complement
While primarily a carrier, the 1137-meter long Destroyer is heavily armed with eight heavy dual turbolaser turrets, two medium turbolaser cannons, fifty-two point-defense laser cannons, four heavy proton torpedo tubes for engaging enemy craft. In addition the Vader is armed with six tractor beam projectors that allow it to lock onto and move other vessels or objects.
The Vader is the primary carrier of the Second Flotilla, and houses both exceptional carrying capacity and innovative technology offering two deployment options. In addition to a standard ventral hangar bay, the bow of the Vader can open up to reveal a half kilometer long dorsal flight deck. This flight deck enables the Vader to rapidly launch hundreds of fighters. However, the slow opening and closing of the armored bow doors could leave the ship extremely vulnerable.
In accordance with its primary role as a carrier, the Vader contains a large complement of state-of-the-art starfighters, totaling 96 fighters in its hangar. 4 squadrons of modern TIE/FO Starfighters (48 ships) were the ship's primary method of engaging hostile craft, along with 3 Squadrons of the advanced two seater TIE/SF Starfighter (36 ships). The pilots of the expensive, high performance TIE/D Defender Squadron were hand picked from the best pilots in the Imperial Navy.
During deployment, the Vader is supported by the heavy cruisers of the Second Flotilla, theAcclamator-class Assault Ship, ISN Amedda, for transporting troops to the surface, the Vindicator-class Heavy Cruiser, ISN Thrawn, carrying a TIE/SA Bomber squadron and a TIE/SF Squadron, as well as a Quasar Fire-class Cruiser Carrier carrying 48 TIE/FO Starfighters.
Admiral Brask'yree'nuruodo (Kyreen)
- Species: Chiss
- Role: Commanding Officer of the ISN Vader
- Rank: Admiral
- Year of Birth: 13 BBY
The daughter of an Imperial Marshal and a Captain of the Galactic Empire, the blood of both an army and naval leader run through her veins, Kyreen was born to be a future commander. Her parents entered her into the Imperial Academy on Coruscant at the young age of seven, where she was trained in naval combat and strategy. She earned a reputation for being a bit of a maverick, with a sense of pride, arrogance, and a willingness to do things her own way, and as a result received numerous disciplinary warnings and threats of expulsion, which were never carried out simply because she was so good at what she did. However, when she was aged 13, her mother was killed aboard the first death star, and four years later, her father was killed in the Battle of Endor, which led to the defeat of the Galactic Empire and the closure of the Coruscant Academy.
Left an orphan on Coruscant, Kyreen's natural sense of authority allowed her to quickly find mundane inner city work to sustain herself until more fulfilling tasks arose. Two years later, she signed on as an ensign with a criminal syndicate, serving aboard a Marauder-class Corvette. A professional unlike any other in the syndicate, she advanced quickly through the ranks and was captain of the ship by 16 ABY, aged 29 and within a decade of joining. She advanced further through the ranks, and when the syndicate stole a Vindicator-class Heavy Cruiser, she was chosen as its first captain.
She continued to grow her reputation as a cunning naval commander, when she was headhunted by the Cocytus Empire. Seeking a new challenge, she joined, and served on many ships in a variety of roles, and earning the title of Vice Admiral and Executive Officer of the Flagship, the Dark Paladin. Following its destruction, which occurred while she was ashore, she was assigned captaincy of one of the clan's new dual flagships, the ISN Vader and promoted to the rank of Admiral.
Admiral Kyreen gets things done and she does it her way. She has an air of authority about her presence and speech, and will accept no insubordination on her ship. She has an fierce temper when she feels things are not going as she plans. She feels honoured to have been given command of such a powerful and expensive vessel and will do everything in her power to ensure its success in battle, even if that means defying a few orders here and there. She's confident her acts of defiance will be forgotten if she brings results. She appreciates Elincia's hands-off and results-focused oversight, and is allowed complete autonomy in terms of her command of the Vader.

Grand Vizier Dr. Elincia Rei
- Main article: Elincia Rei
Elincia, under various names and appearances, has served the Empire for decades. As the Grand Vizier, she oversaw the construction of the new fleet, and the acquisition of the ISN Vader, which serves as the flagship of the Grand Vizier.
Dr. Elincia Rei is intelligent and professional. Calm, even toned, she is well mannered and polite, armed with an exceptionally sharp mind honed by years of scientific work. Her speech is precise and to the point, while she has a strange ability to get what she wants out of people. In terms of her military command, she leaves such duties to the Commanding Officer, as she has no experience of naval command and is rarely even aboard the Vader. The ship operates identically with or without her presence on the bridge.
