The Gardian is a privateer SCA ship that berths in Innilgard. By their ordinance, the crew are committed to the letter of marque given to them by the Crown of Lochac and dutifully provide funds and prize to the kingdom whilst protecting its lands and waters.
The captaincy is auctioned annually. Profits from this go to the kingdom's coffers. The rank of first mate is awarded to the victor of a rapier tournament. The ship is owned by Lady Katerina da Brescia.
