Scoundrel Armor

All over the galaxy, scoundrels of all sorts wear armor to protect themselves from rivals, authorities, and whatever else is trying to kill them. While this armor type does not instantly make one a criminal, it is this sort of hodgepodge armor that is often seen on one. Bits of armor plates cover most vital areas while also allowing for freedom of movement. Neutral color tones and covering cloaks often help disguise it as normal clothing as well. This isn't a uniform, it's a mess of armor trying to blend in as clothes or under them. Can be found just about anywhere people live.


Legal. Some armor functions might cause problems but wearing the generic set is perfectly legal anywhere armor is allowed.

No. This is super generic.

Type and Coverage

Type: Medium

  • Torso: A combination of cloth and duraplast plates pad the torso fully.
  • Back: Much the same as the Torso.
  • Lower Arms: Shoulder pauldrons and duraplast plating up to just above the elbow.
  • Upper Legs: Plates covering thighs fully around and a knee plate dangling over the kneecap.


Function 1: Thermal Undersuit
  • Thermal undersuits wick away or reflect thermal energy for brief periods of time. They are not nearly as effective as a suit that firefighters would wear. Most commonly used to protect soldiers from flamethrower weapons or short bursts of extreme heat or cold, and are only good for 1-2 posts of exposure depending on intensity. They are useless against blasters.
  • Force User Compatible?: No
Function 2: Grapple Line
  • Grapple lines are capable of supporting the weight of 1-2 people and can launch up to ranges typically up to 15 meters away. Once no longer in use, they are detached from the launcher and left behind. While hand-held grapple guns are capable of auto-winching, armor or wrist mounted devices lack this ability. Grapple lines must be manually activated and controlled by a button or switch.
  • Force User Compatible?: No
