Plot Overview

Baba Yaga is a plot centered around the privateers aboard the titular ship, the Baba Yaga. The ship is a variant of a “Divine Comedy” State-Issue Ayane obtained through trading with a Freespacer group.

The ship was the first in the new Privateer program commissioned by Viceroy Qault Kajia, a government official in the Gartagen Union, with the purpose of assisting with missions in the Kikyo sector to allow the Union military focus on the Kuvexian threat. With that in mind, the Viceroy looked for a Captain suitable for the mission. He located Mikhail Alexei Zakharov (also known as “Bruin”) looking for a crew and made him an offer. After the first job, he would be allowed to pick his own targets and keep the spoils in exchange for taking a job on behalf of the Viceroy from time to time. All he needs is a crew.
