DESCRIPTION
In the years after Thyrsus was reclaimed by the victorious Sun Guard, the governing body known as the Hierarchy sought to update their valiant crusader’s armour to represent their newfound purpose, and celebrate. So, the newly-established Government turned to the Republic Engineering Corporation and their Special Projects Division in order to draw up a prototype for the Sun Guard’s new armour. However, as fate would have it, the design that was concocted wasn’t up to the Sun Guard’s standards - nor did their Supreme Sun Guardian approve of the direction that Republic Engineering was headed with the Prototype. Thus, with the Project momentarily scrapped in favour of meeting the Sun Guard’s exacting standards, the Republic Engineering Corporation sought to repurpose their supposed failure into something worthwhile.

Their opportunity arrived when a notable individual was mentioned during one of the Republic Engineering Corporation’s maintenance runs, thanks in part to a chatty member of a prominent squad of Alliance Commandos. Therefore, the classified project was shifted to creating a suit of armour that would ideally complement the Mirialan Warrior’s fighting style.

The armour began as an advanced bodyglove, that had more than just the capability to be environmentally pressurized to safeguard the wearer from the harsh ambience of the world around them. This bodyglove housed a multitude of layers within its overall construction, each blending their strengths into the materials above and below their varied positioning, to create something truly unique. The first layer was the one that contacted the skin or the clothing that the wearer chose to clad themselves in. This would be the most recognizable section of the armour as it was a temperature-regulating overlay with several connecting nodes or modules that acted as a portion of the suit’s advanced bio-restorative system. As one would expect, this layer was specialized and wholly dedicated to keeping the wearer comfortable and alive, without hampering their movement in any way, shape or form.

While primarily dedicated to the survivability of the wearer, this biorestorative system came with an automated AED that would seek to revive the suit’s Operator should their heart stop for any reason. Naturally, there were times that this process wouldn’t complete its desired task - as the subject would be either too far gone, or the system would be disabled through extraneous means.

The second layer of the armour housed multiple capabilities that ranged from superior methods of defence to augmenting the wearer’s combat prowess and was truly the primary powerhouse of the entire panoply. It was in this layer that the synthetic muscle fibres that comprised the entirety Rybcoarse augmentation system made themselves known, where the wearer would be made stronger by the artificial tissue encapsulating their frame. This bioengineered compound would mimic an organic musculature but was capable of tripling the existing muscle strength - which was provided by the synthetically produced biofibres, essentially creating an advanced muscle suit when combined with the crushgaunt technology. Adding in the capabilities of the bequeathed hydrostatic impact gel, the artificial compound was woven into the muscle suit, giving the wearer an advanced thermal gel alternative that would ideally protect the wearer from kinetic harm.

The third and final layer of the armoured bodyglove was the hardened exterior carapace that offered a portion of the entire suit’s protective properties. This layer focused on defending the wearer from shrapnel from various explosive devices, various melee weapons, blasters as well as projectile weaponry, and even offering a measure of protection against the enigmatic prowess of a lightsabre. These protective systems would compensate for the gaps in the external armour plating, ensuring that the wearer was well defended against whatever threat(s) came their way.

Adding into the armour’s capabilities, the external carapace was outfitted with form-fitting composite plates that would greatly increase the suit’s protective qualities. With the host of systems that were integrated into the armour, both intent on keeping the armour under her control and supplementing her predatory-nature on the battlefield, this unnamed prototype would prove to be a benefit to the Mirialan Warrior. As not only would her strength be enhanced, but her agility as well - with a marginal hindrance on her mobility as she adjusted and adapted to her new armour. Also worthy of note was the integrated Optical Camo system, which sought to shroud the user from sight and help them blend into their surroundings. While this system wasn’t as perfect as a cloaking field, it did offer the Mirialan Warrior a battlefield advantage - especially if she operated in the shadows where the phantasmal silhouette would be difficult to spot. There were notable drawbacks to this system, however. It wasn’t capable of dampening sound, so should the user be a chatterbox or utilize their armour’s systems without a helmet - their enemies would be able to easily locate them.
