- "The Pursuer is like a living extension of who I am. She's lethal, unpredictable, but serves just about any purpose you can give her."
- — Cadden Blackthorne
The Pursuer II was Cadden Blackthorne's second personal ship, gifted to him by Talon Karde shortly after the destruction of the Pursuer, which he accepted as a means of making the two even from a previous debt Karde owed him. Like its predecessor, it was a Firespray-31-class Patrol and Attack Craft.
The Pursuer II was less powerful than its predecessor, holding far fewer modifications. Cadden had neither the time nor desire to give it a full makeover, mimicking the Pursuer, and instead met it halfway. This particular model housed an advanced security system, though nowhere near efficient as its predecessor, a stealth drive, and its connection to Cadden's personal communications frequency, as well as a direct link to his second set of armor.
Cadden used the ship extensively during its lifespan, both discreetly and publicly. Following his late use with the ship's predecessor, Cadden installed transponder codes into the ship to give it the alias of Dark Shadow, and to keep his identity private continued to use the moniker "Nemesis".
Its most notable usage came when he was contracted by the mysterious organization known as the Triad to take down a smuggling organization that had got its hands on a drug known as Chronic in 14 ABY. Blackthorne used the Pursuer II extensively during this mission, and the ship proved invaluable to his and his rival's, Dahdtoudi's, success in its completion.
However, the Pursuer II saw its demise when Cadden arrived at Mandalore in 15 ABY. The ship was sabotaged by Ilan Garuda on Holoworld III, and the hyperdrive malfunctioned as the craft came into the system, causing a chain reaction which destroyed the ship. Cadden had managed to escape before the ship exploded and was knocked out by the blast. He was picked up by Gandon Belak and Locke Rekkon moments later, but the ship was deemed irreparable and unsalvageable.
