Prudence's dirigible, the Spotted Custard, received a Gatling gun from Lord Akeldama. This was gifted to her as a twenty-first birthday present. It is installed on the port side of the main deck and mounted in such a way that it cannot swing around and can only shoot outwards.
Crew Members Who Have Manned the Gun Edit
- "Outfitting had included restock and refueling, and the addition of a sparkling new Gatling gun for the port side, much to Spoo's delight." (Imprudence, Chapter Two)
- "The gun was a gift from Dama, who, despite his tea-drenched grudge, refused to let Rue's twenty-first birthday slip by without acknowledgement." (Imprudence, Chapter Two)
- "At her return home, Dama had presented her with a large shiny rapid-fire gun because, as he said, she was all grown up and a fully-fledged independent now, and knowing her family propensities, she'd need a ruddy big gun." (Imprudence, Chapter Two)
- "Rue had no doubt her vampire father had researched the best rapid-fire to mount on the Spotted Custard, but she also had no doubt that he was attracted to the round golden sheen of the custom light-weight Gatling. The Maxim was a brutal-looking thing and the Nordenfelt positively unseemly. If one must give a young lady a ballistic birthday gift, it should, at the very least, be pretty." (Imprudence, Chapter Fifteen)
