Eberron: Ch.1 Political Theatre
This ship’s name was meant as a double entendre.
The first meaning is that it is the Scion of the Kraken. Kraken represents House Lyrandar, and the captain is a removed decendant of that line. This signufies that she is still a child to that family line.
The second comes from the meaning of scion that is a young shoot of a plant that is latter grafted of used to start a whole new tree. This would mean she is no longer of that line, but the beginner of a new family tree.
This is a small to medium sized airship that is designed for high end transportation. However, there are more than a few weapons on this vessel that will protect the crew if the situation calls for it.
