Space Master Yvette Deladrier
Lead Pilot of the "Den Mother"
A capable pilot and navigator, Space Master Yvette Deladrier is best known as a former member of the TAF naval forces. Recently out of “retirement”, Space Master Deladrier is capable, spending much of her crew’s free time in training. Those efforts have shown consistent results.
Space Master Deladrier is a Veteran NPC JumpShip Pilot.
Serving in the Taurian Navy, Space Master Deladrier served in the Perdition Union Defense Fleet, piloting an Invader-Class JumpShip.
