The Death's Head was a Dreadnaught-class heavy cruiser made by Rendili StarDrive. The Death's Head served as the personal flagship to the pirate lord Ixtren Wallonis.
The Death's Head was originally christened Rightful Fist and belonged to the Corporate Secotor Authority. During the Clone Wars, Ixtren and a small contingent of his pirate fleet, raided the Corporate Sector and made off with the Rightful Fist which was in space dock waiting for departure. The pirates renamed it the Death's Head and added a stylized paint job to go with it. Over the years numerous modifications were made most notably the addition of ion cannons and a massive influx of droid automation systems.
During the Galactic Empire Era, the Death's Head was used in raids against the Empire in the service of the Rebellion. Afterwards Ixtren switched sides and offered his services to Grand Admiral Thrawn and conducted several raids against the New Republic. Following Thrawn's demise, the Death's Head returned to pirating and continued in this line of work all the way up to the Yuuzhan Vong War. At that time Ixtren briefly joined the Peace Brigade. The Death's Head participated in the Battle of Bilbringi, Hapes, and Kashyyyk. During Kashyyyk Ixtren switched sides once again, this time turning on the Peace Brigade and Yuuzhan Vong. Throughout the Vong war, the Death's Head served faithfully under Ixtren's command.
It is unknown what became of the Death's Head after the Yuuzhan Vong war.

Behind the Scenes Edit
The names for the Death's Head was chosen due to Ixtren's avatar, Fieldmarshal Mackensen, who wore the death's head symbol on his hat.
