Captain Hermann de Wynter steered this vessel for the Snakehead gang. The Liberian Star smuggled people from country to country under the guise of a shipping liner for a cheap toy company, Unwin Toys.
The refugees paid a high price to be shipped out of the country and were often converged in Bangkok, India to begin the journey to a different country. There they were contacted, brought to the shipping yard, and locked in toy containers to be boated across the ocean.
The Liberian Star was critically damaged following the events of Snakehead after Alex Rider used two exploding coins to disrupt its systems.
