The Silent Warrior is an Eclipse-class]] Cruiser that was one of the most well-known Eldar pirate ships of the Gothic Sector. It gained much of its notoriety from the Walpurgis Attack in the Port Maw subsector wherein it boarded and captured the Dauntless Light Cruiser Vigilant as the Imperial ship awaited rendezvous with Penal Legion transports en route to the embattled world of Lethe. The Eldar forced its now-former Captain to transmit an all-clear signal to the transports, drawing them into the clutches of the Silent Warrior. The Silent Warrior then used repeated waves of Eagle Bombers to wipe out the entire convoy with impunity.
