Taryc has been using the same armor since her days as an Inquisitor for the Primeval. In all of that time, in countless battles, her armor has saved her life. However, through the battles she fought, she has come to learn that her armor was wanting in some departments. With her experience on the battlefield, she learned of ways to layer armor to be more protective without sacrificing maneuverability. Along the way, she also gained access to a small amount of Songsteel.
Taryc melted down the plates of armor in a Beskar forge on Alderaan, under the watchful eye of a Clan Vereen smith. She then painstakingly worked with the smith to fashion the microscopic scales for her armor. The Beskar scales are layered like shark skin, running your hand down them it feels smooth, but brushing your hand up cuts like a thousand tiny beskar needles. She worked the scale armor in with her already existing beskar armorweave. The result was a significant increase in protection with only a mild decrease in flexibility of the armor.
Taryc then took the Songsteel and shaped it into plates. These plates are made to cover the most common striking spots in combat. These include boots, greaves, thigh plates, breast and back plates, bracers, gauntlets, pauldrons, and her helmet. While forging this songsteel into her armor, she practiced folding her force presence into the metal as she had with her sword, binding it to herself. In the center of her chest sits firebird emblem with a bright gem of a krayt dragon pearl center in it. This was where she had focused the majority of her time in force imbuing. Here she imbued the pearl and the armor with her pyromancy, focusing it down in two layers. The first layer, joined to the pearl as an anchor, protects Taryc from fire and temperature extremes, using force imbuement in place of an electronic temperature control. The second layer is focused pyromancy on the pearl. This imbuement allows her greater control over her pyromancy, making it able to act as a focus for her. Also within the force imbued plated are a pair of new weapons, specifically a wrist bolter in her right bracer and a wrist charric in her left. The backplate holds a skystrike mini jump pack, integrated in from the ground up with a specially augmented area between it and the backplate for her sword to sheathe. Also worked into the armor is an Armatech Exemplar shield unit.
The helmet was the last piece she constructed. She forged it out of what was left of her songsteel, using solarium glasteel to line the large visual area in front. This acts as protection, and a power supply for the helmets HUD system, which is equiped with the typical viewing formats of thermal, night vision, and various tactical overlays suggested by the Clan Vereen and Firemane armorers she had worked with. The helmet also contains a communications suite capable of connecting automatically to a series of preloaded channels, or manually to new channels with some effort.
When the full armor is assembled, all of the pieces are sealed together with enviromental seals. These, as well as a small internal air supply, allow Taryc to be active in all manner of environments or in space without much worry. The internal air supply is enough to last for a full hour of full combat activity, and much longer in less strenuous times. Aside from this, the helmet also contains a limited filtration system, allowing her to filter out known pollutants and chemicals in type I atmospheres, and some Type II's.
