A catamaran originally of Chaladonian design, the Squid cuts a distinctive figure with its split deck and multiple hulls. Unusually, the helm of a Squid is positioned on the port side of the ship, so a clever opponent will exploit the pilot’s blind spot and approach from starboard. Alternatively, seeing as the guns are to starboard, an even cleverer opponent may wish to approach on the relatively toothless and vulnerable port side.
Prized for their speed and maneuverability, Squids have become increasingly popular as assault and raiding vessels and can be quite menacing when properly outfitted. Though lightweight and lightly armored, they can outmaneuver most other ship classes and are adept at harassing opponents with lightning strikes. They tend to come in fast and furious, guns blazing, and go rather more ponderously when they depart, their ample holds weighted with spoils.
