Events of The Scar[]

During the events of The Scar, Silas Fennec used the Wordhoard as his secret lodgings. Fennec's room on the ship contained charts of relationships and blackmail on many of Armada's major figures, as well as a printing press for creating pamphlets.

After the New Crobuzon Navy's failed rescue attempt, Uther Doul and his men ambushed Fennec in the Wordhoard, and eventually succeeded in taking Fennec into custody.
