San Se Hu

Named after the mythical Tricolour Tiger of Panatha, Hannibal put together this armour to handle a wide variety of hostile environments while still making sure people knew exactly who was wearing it. Who else would wear armour this flashy?

Despite the somewhat whimsical design, the suit is rated against against toxins and chemicals and features full vac-sealing, a rebreather within the helmet, and an atmosphere-reading survival HUD. The armour itself is hazard-rated Verpine fiber mesh as the primary cloth component, with removable duraplast plates fitted within and an armourweave underlay to protect the wearer and the suit's integrity. The helmet is primarily duraplast, though with an open, blast-treated transparisteel faceplate for maximum visibility. Rancor leather forms several more solid components such as parts of the boots, gloves, and joint coverings for toughness and longevity. Although it lacks the full life support box of a typical pilot suit, the Force can be used to make up for that to some degree.

Though quite functional, it is also adorned with quite a few stylistic flourishes. Swirling gold-coloured accents across the helmet and faceplate, lines and designs in various colours, a stylishly short armourweave hooded vest, and a bright pink stylized impression of a three-petaled flower on the chestplate. Painted and etched in gold across the shoulders the symbol of the Jedi Order, proudly proclaiming his affiliation. Pouches, pockets, clips, holsters, commemorative pins, and other such items can be easily attached to the suit in a variety of locations. The tailored but flexible fit allows for full range of motion and excellent maneuverabilty.




LEGALITY

As legal as a custom flight suit would be. Wearing a fully-enclosed helmet in public without a good reason may be frowned upon in the more civilized worlds.

Functions



Function 1: Survival HUD

  • Reads atmosphere composition and detects toxins.
  • Force User Compatible?: Yes

Function 2: Rebreather

  • Rebreathers, whether built into a helmet or a separate mask, allow for the wearer to breath underwater or in space for brief amounts of time by scrubbing CO2 from their exhaled breath and recycling it. Generally this lasts for up to 5 posts, but heavy exertion can shorten that time.
  • Force User Compatible?: Yes

Function 3: Vac-Seal

  • It's no replacement for a dedicated spacesuit if you intend to EVA, but this under suit, when combined with a helmet, can protect the wearer from the immediate effects of exposure to a vacuum for up 5 posting rounds. You still need a way to breathe, however.
  • Force User Compatible?: Yes

Function 4: Environment Suit

  • While it is not rated for extended exposure to extreme hazards, this body suit (when combined with an enclosed helmet) can protect the wearers body from the effects of environmental and weaponized toxins and similar hazards for up to 5 posting rounds.
  • Force User Compatible?: Yes

Function 5: Armourweave Accessory

  • Most often in the form of a heavy cape, skirt, or underlay beneath armour, armour weave provides some protection against the penetrating effects of shrapnel from explosives and other unpowered high velocity impacts, with only a small amount of bleed through damage (bruising or very minor wounds). It offers no protection against kinetic impact or energy, vibroweapons, or similar "powered" weapons. Having more than one accessory (example: Cape + underweave) provides no additional effect.
  • Force User Compatible?: Yes
