Skyriggers are highly mobile rapid-response specialists defined by their back-mounted aether-endrin that makes them flight capable.[1a][1b]

Role

Usually held in reserve, Skyriggers often act as a protective screen for the flagship.[3a][1a] When battle breaks out, they detach themselves from the ship's hull and navigate among the other elements of the sky-fleets as the situation demands.[1a][1b] These rapid-response units constantly remain on the lookout for opportune targets.[3a]

Equipment

By adjusting the feed of aether-fuel to their aether-endrin, Skyriggers are able to alter their altitude while venting aether-gas bestows them their legendary manoeuvrability.[2a] To protect themselves from potential caustic discharges sometimes produced by these highly volatile mixtures derived from aether-gold, Skyriggers wear protective clothing and armour.[2a] In order to conserve fuel, those airborne experts use their mag-boots or skyhooks to hitch themselves to friendly skyvessels.[1b]

Types

  • Skywarden: Elite Arkanaut soldiers acting as aerial shock troops.[2a]
