SSU Redeemer was originally called the ARN Cheroqueee, a Cheroqueee-class 10-gun brig-sloop of the Albion Royal Navy (smaller human empire), one of more than 100 ships of this class. The vessel, constructed at a cost of 572,000 g.p., was launched on 11 June 5458 from the Woolwich Dockyard on the River Isis. In July of that year she took part in a fleet review celebrating the coronation of King George IV of the Albion States. She was adapted as a survey barque and took part in three survey expeditions off the coast of Carthage.

The Cheroquee class of 10-gun brig-sloops was designed by Sir Henry Peake, and eventually over 100 were constructed. The working drawings for ARN Cheroquee (Albion Royal Navy) and ARN Barracouta were issued to the Woolwich Dockyard on 16 February 5455.

The ship was lost to pirates in 5482, a pearl of the Albanian Navy. Flying the Jolly Roger and the personal sigil of Two-Fingered McGrath it caused terror wherever it went. It wasn’t until 5493, after a 3 year disappearance did the ship return. This time under the symbol and flag of Umberleee with a new name of SSU Redeemer.  It has then been sent as a trader, and possible export of equipment from foreign governments.

It was lost in 5712 with all hands on board. No word was received of its journey’s end, nor of any survivors.
