The Mortus IV is a one of a kind ship: It holds the mortal remains of a deceased pilot. It has just enough fuel capacity to escape Earth's gravity, then shuts down and enters an unstable solar orbit, circling the Sun for years before crashing into it in a fiery explosion. Mourning relatives can observe its trajectory and often wear black until it has arrived.
Some believe that the souls of the dead are still on board, cursing anybody who dares to disturb them.
