History & Background (Dossier)
Tyrian Lordship class Destroyer Escorts were Rule of Man and Long Night-era vessels that served with the navy of Tyr. The world was a major commercial and industrial hub during the period and was one of the dominant powers on the Sindalian Main, controlling a brutal feudal polity called the Tyrian Lordships. It regularly came into conflict with Aslan "Second Sons" as they spread to trailing in search of new territories, and the reliable Destroyer Escorts saw frequent action before the eventual collapse of the Lordships state. A number of examples of the class are known to have been captured by the Aslan and pressed into service on their behalf.
