Centres around Captain Corliss Vail’s origin (from the award winning animated short film, Cyan Eyed), from her humble beginnings as a peasant from a tiny fishing village to the lands most feared pirate of the skies.
Set in an alternate Victorian-esque world full of flying ships and steampunk contraptions, an abducted young child, Corliss Vail, happens to impresses pirate Captain Blackburn with her fighting ability and he takes her on as his prodigy. Twenty years later during a raid, Captain Blackburn falls in battle, and Corliss Vail takes on the mantle of captain, and now must learn to manage the savage crew through the metaphorical trial by fire. When a clue from her mysterious and forgotten past surfaces in the form a man, Galien Cassel, she begins to question her place in the world. Through learning more about the truth of her past, she becomes torn between the paths of her future: satisfy her burning desire to learn more about her past by joining Galien and tolerating his questionable moral code, or give that all up and forge a path of her own, free of the shackles of her heritage.
