Mist Laden was bounty hunter Lu'daal-ud's personal ship, in use by his associates of the Granse Confederacy. Lu'daal-ud captured the original owner, an independent trader, in the Imberlin system.

Mist Laden was used much more than another of the Confederacy's ships, the Waterspire, which was stolen from the Rebel Alliance. It is unknown if it was used more than the third ship of the Confederacy, Nightcast.
