Olivert Reise Arnor considered the Courageous the symbol of the neutral third power, amidst the noble faction of the Four Great Houses and the reformist faction of Chancellor Giliath Osborne, in Erebonia.
It came into existence with help from the Zeiss Central Factory in Liberl and the Epstein Foundation in Leman. The hull was designed by Professor Thomson of the Roer Institute of Technology. The information processing system was the latest technology property of Epstein Foundation. It's equipped with ZCF's high-performance engines, allowing the aircraft to reach a top-speed of 3,000 selge per hour. This is slightly slower than the Arseille's 3,600, for which the Courageous makes up with armour and interception capabilities.
The ship is equipped with the bare minimum of armaments due to both a lack of time and a conscious decision to focus on what the ship stands for.
The Courageous makes its debut and maiden voyage on September 25th, 1204. Its first stop is Thors Military Academy, where it picks up Class VII before proceeding to Heimdallr to the ship. The public is suitably impressed, though Giliath Osborne is less so, commenting that it was unexpected play from him.
The whereabouts of the Courageous and it's crew, primarily Olivert Reise Arnor and Victor S. Arseid, are a major concern for the Noble Alliance, who seek to capture Olivert and bring the Viscount over to their side.
The ship makes its reappearance in order to rescue Rean from the Pantagruel. Using its speed, it makes an initial pass, allowing Viscount Arseid, Sara Valestein, Toval Randonneur, Claire Rieveldt, and Sharon Kreuger to board the Pantagruel, while the rest of Class VII and Prince Olivert are teleported over by Emma. It later retrieves everyone, including Rean, Princess Alfin and Valimar during its second pass, before leaving the combat zone.
Shortly after, the command of the Courageous is handed over to Class VII and the other students from Thors Military Academy. Towa Herschel is appointed captain of the ship in place of Viscount Arseid, and the ship sets out to reunite the missing students of the academy.
Recruiting various students from Thors opens up various services within the airship. From weapon/armor stores, training facilities and many others.
Back under the command of Victor, the Courageous was confiscated from the prince and is now used once again to ferry the Main Campus students to their field exercises. It is first seen when they are returning from one such study in North Ambria. At Hiemdallr Airport it undergoes maintenance where George Nome is involved.
The Courageous is used by Olivert, Victor and Toval when they come to assist in the battle at the Gral of Erebos. Black Alberich reveals that George had installed explosives onboard and detonates the device and seemingly kills all onboard in an explosion. The Courageous is irrevocably destroyed and debris rains from the sky.
Locations & Personnel
After retrieving Princess Alfin Reise Arnor from the Pantagruel, the ship becomes Class VII's transport, opening up the ship for exploration and taking Ymir's place as a home base for the class.
