Pious Fervor is a Esgem-pattern CAS-class assault carrier of the Forsaken Navy that was formerly apart of the Covenant fleet. Commanded by Shipmaster Civa 'Vrama, it served as the flagship of the Fleet of Eternal Conviction during its service in the Covenant and at the outbreak of the Great Schism.
Commissioned from the shipyards of Glyke during the Human-Covenant War, the Pious Fervor was quickly placed into the frontlines of the conflict and first engaged the UNSC at Minab. The Pious would participate in the glassing of the planet after UNSC forces were destroyed or routed.
Having served in the Fleet of Eternal Conviction during the onset of the Great Schism, it fell victim to the infighting of the Sangheili-Jiralhanae as the civil war began and took heavy casualties among the Sangheili crew but eventually came out victorious.
Joining the Forsaken, along with Glorious Justice and Sovereign Heart, the Pious Fervor began to serve as a critical warship within the early Forsaken fleet. In 2554, as Alakav Forges began to churn out new warships, Pious Fervor began to serve as the flagship of a fleet to invade and raid the enemies of the Forsaken.
Although most of the ship's crew has been largely replaced by Tratum Drones, the organic crew members are still operating in critical positions and positions of command.
- Civa 'Vrama – Shipmaster
- Bakan 'Ludam – Major and CO of local starfighters
- Azo 'Rentak – Commander of the Cyd'Taha Legion
