The Ship (alternatively known as The Ship Of War, Culture and ritual) was a fallen timeship of the Great Houses which had fallen from the War in Heaven and embedded itself not only in the Earth, but also human culture itself.
Its interior was described as a smooth black incomprehensible complex of twisted corridors and dimensions which would rearrange itself at any given time. Within its confines lay 'windows' into past and present events which could be viewed and even altered by anyone passing through them. It could however be navigated by beings who were sufficiently 'primed' to understand culture and context itself, such as Inangela Marrero.
The control room was a vast dark chamber, containing a single shaft of intense purple light which stretched high into the unseen ceiling yet provided no light to the room itself. Within this light sat the insect-like pilot who appeared to be a manifestation of Tiffany Korta.
The ship, while trapped was able to manipulate the Humans that lived above it to free itself. It was almost freed by the ritual performed by Inangela across the town that night. When unseen events halted the ritual's completion, The ship was able to reach out to drunk passers-by and manipulate them into performing the final required actions.
Its freedom was short-lived however as the actions of Valentine Bregman saw the detonation of an improvised nuclear weapon at its heart. The area the ship had rested in the real world was annihilated by the blast, the ship however fell back to the earth, promising to remain and to rise again whenever it could.
