» Ship Propulsion in Last Exile

Ships, large and small, depend upon Claudia, a liquid which generates energy when pressurized. The hybrid vanship engines use a steam/Claudia unit combination. Steam power propels liquid Claudia through the Claudia tubes to pressure chambers, where it generates energy for both lift and propulsion.

NewtypeUSA call the unit Cloud-I-E-R rather than Claudia. Whatever the correct spelling, them's the facts. You can learn more about tehcnical details from Anime-Kraze's excellent Last Exile Terminology page.
