The Corvus was a Raider II-class corvette used by Inferno Squad during the Galactic Civil War. Originally an Imperial vessel, the Corvus joined the New Republic following Commander Iden Versio and Del Meeko's defection from the Empire. Approximately six months after joining the Republic, the Corvus participated in the final battle that marked the end of the war and the Empire.
After the defection of Iden Versio the Corvus was handed over to the New Republic operation, upon which the ship was later given a paint job in New Republic livery and heavily retrofitted.The solar panels on the sides were removed and the engines replaced.
During the time of the First Order, the ship was captured on the planet Pillio by Jinata Security forces. Kylo Ren was in search of Del Meeko who was on board the ship. After interrogating Meeko on the location of Lor San Tekka, Ren turned the former Imperial over to Gideon Hask, Meeko's former squadmate who executed him on the bridge of the Corvus. Hask then instructed Gleb to leave the ship on the planet in order to lure Versio into a trap.
