The Lave is a light cruiser and represents a shift in French designs of this class of vessel. Most light cruisers opt for additional turrets, even smaller ones, but the designers of the Lave and other ships of the Liberté-class opted for additional torpedo launchers. Working in conjunction with other light cruisers, the Lave can unleash enough torpedoes to force the enemy to concentrate on evasion, often turning the tide of battle.

The Lave was badly damaged during a storm in the Atlantic in 1900, which forced her into dock for six months. During that time she was outfitted with new boilers and a new Telsa Coil, making her one of the more efficient and technologically innovative Liberté-class ships. Her recent assignment has been to the Blue Dolphin squadron in the North Atlantic. In an unconfirmed confrontation with the German light cruiser Kolberg, the Lave was said to have quickly gained the upper hand and forced the Kolberg to flee the battle. While both sides deny the fight, the Lave's number two stack shoes signs of a recent battle repair, testimony to the rumour's accuracy.
