Elliot Pid, the famed adventurer, sailed on his eponymous ship to explore the world and seek glory. At some point he must have lost the ship to pirates, who have used and abused it ever since.
Now it is a ghost ship. The captain's logs tell epic tales of dangers and treasure, and the last entries speak of fighting a kraken, a giant sea monster encountered in unpioneered waters.
Since then, the kraken has become famous, and its very name is feared by sailors wherever they roam.
- Elliot Pid and his lore are probably based on Marco Polo and The Travels of Marco Polo. His portrayal might be inspired by the 1979 anime Animation Kiko: Marco Polo no Boken.
