The Corvus was a Raider II-class corvette used by Inferno Squad during the Galactic Civil War. Originally an Imperial vessel, the Corvus joined the New Republic following Commander Iden Versio and Del Meeko's defection from the Empire. Some time after joining the Republic, the Corvus participated in the final battle that marked the end of the war and the Empire. Decades later, it was used as a cargo hauler by Meeko and was captured by the First Order on Pillio while looking for Lor San Tekka and the map to Luke Skywalker. It would later be shot down and destroyed over Vardos by the Retribution under the orders of Gideon Hask in an attempt to kill Zay Versio, Iden and Del's daughter.
Galactic Civil WarEdit
After the defection of Iden Versio the Corvus was handed over to the New Republic operation, upon which the ship was later given a paint job in New Republic livery and heavily retrofitted. The solar panels on its sides were removed and its engines replaced. It would retain this configuration until its destruction, the only change being the substitution of its New Republic red paint for blue once it entered civilian service.
During the time of the First Order, the ship was captured on the planet Pillio by Jinata Security forces. Kylo Ren was in search of Del Meeko who was on board the ship. After interrogating Meeko on the location of Lor San Tekka, Ren turned the former Imperial over to Gideon Hask, Meeko's former squadmate who executed him on the bridge of the Corvus. Hask then instructed Gleb to leave the ship on the planet in order to lure Versio into a trap. Sometime later it was found by Shriv Suurgav and later was used to find Del starting with the planet of Athulla, after a brief space battle with a Jinata Security fleet it went to Vardos where it was later shot down and destroyed by the Retribution in an attempt to kill Zay.
Behind the scenesEdit
Corvus is the Latin word for raven; the Romans also invented a type of boarding device called the Corvus.
