The Claimh Solais was the flagship of the Mad-thane fleet and captained by David Mad-thane himself. The battleship played a key role in the war against the Disith and then in the war against the Guild.
- The name of the ship originates from the sword of Nuadha, the god of battle in Celtic mythology. Literally translated, it means "Sword of Light".
- Written in Greek on either side of the Claimh Solais is "δικαιος,ᾱ,ον πολέω-ω". As it appears, it means nothing in Greek. The first line is the dictionary entry for the word "righteous" in Greek. It would be the same as painting "righteous,ness,ly" on the side of something. The second line is the dictionary entry for "to practice". For correct Greek, it would be "δικαιόπολις".
