"Nabrun Leids was a successful smuggler and pilot for hire, whose ship was a custom-made freighter called the Scarlet Vertha."
―An entry in an artist's journal restored and expanded at the Graf Archive[2]

The Scarlet Vertha was a custom-made[2] Ghtroc Industries 720 light freighter owned by the Morseerian Nabrun Leids.[1] Leids used the starship in his work as a smuggler and a pilot for hire[2] and was active during the reign of the Galactic Empire.[3] The ship was mentioned in an artist's journal, which was restored, expanded, and displayed at the Graf Archive[4] at some point after 34 ABY.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

The Scarlet Vertha was first mentioned in the current canon in the mobile card game Star Wars: Force Collection,[1] which initially launched in 2013. Although the launch of Force Collection predates[6] the Star Wars canon reset of 2014,[7] Lucasfilm Story Group member Leland Chee confirmed that the game was kept updated to fit with canon.[8]

The ship originated in the Legends continuity, first appearing in "Running the Sisar," an adventure published in Secrets of the Sisar Run. The 1997 book served as a supplement for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game and was written by Craig Robert Carey, Shane Hensley, and Pablo Hidalgo, with illustrations by Marshall Andrews III.[9]

  5. Star Wars: Alien Archive establishes that the restored in-universe journal discusses Poe Dameron's mutiny against Amilyn Holdo, which is depicted in Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi. The Star Wars Book places the events of The Last Jedi in the same year as the events of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY, meaning the document must have been published after that year.
