Arthur Rostron was captain of the RMS Carpathia on April 15, 1912, the day the Titanic sank. The nearest ship in the area, he was able to get the ship moving three times faster than normal. He then organized the crew into an efficient machine prepared to assist survivors. His crew successfully followed 23 orders before even reaching the site, which gained them wide praise for their effective response. This loving cup was given to him in ceremony by Margaret Brown, one of the rescued passengers.


When in a disaster zone, it can locate surviving victims. It glows orange when near a survivor and becomes brighter the closer they are. The handles will develop tiny frost crystals if the victim requires immediate medical assistance. During use, the holder will feel progressively colder. The cup is partially powered by the user’s body heat and siphons it off over time. If held on to for too long, the user can experience a frostbite like effect.

Due to its connection with the RMS Ttanic, it is stored in the Captian's Quarters of the RMS Olympic to soothe its depression.
