In the game timeline, the elder lich and his ghost ship were sought by Kralgra led by the ambitious Igvarge in an effort to garner a reputation to exceed the protagonist. The adventurer succeeded in annihilating the lich though it was a pyrrhic victory that costed all of the members of Kralgra their lives. The ghost ship was later claimed by Momonga and its captain was replaced with a new elder lich. Iguva=41 was created and placed in that role by Momonga in order to infiltrate Six Arms who were seeking to recruit the captain of the ghost ship for a mission with a new client regarding travel through the Katze Plains.[5]

More details of the previous owner of the Ghost Ship are revealed when Darkness led by the protagonist went searching for the mithril plates belonging to four man team of Kralgra. Turns out that before the lich was killed, he managed to decapitate three of his attackers, resulting in the mithril plates falling on the ground. Of the three that were left in the Katze Plains, one was picked up by a Skeletal Dragon which became a target of interest for Darkness and New Six Arms for recovery.[6]
