STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES
- + Light & Multipurpose - Overall this set of armor and gear is fitting to the versatile nature of its wearer. Snug, and light enough to where she can utilize her agility and suited enough to where she has most things she'll need to help her out in the field.
- +/- Versatility - While it helps to be somewhat prepared for different scenarios, this armor/gear doesn't have any consistent strengths across the board. I.e not every portion of it is lightsaber resistant.
- - EMP/ION - It has a severe weakness to electrical attacks etc.
- - The Force - No resistance to direct applications of the Force
STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES BY INDIVIDUAL PIECE
Romi Jade has never been a fan of traditional robes, sporting combat suits of varying types well into her Knighthood. With them mostly just being aesthetically pleasing, she never quite had a set that fully supported her identity and personality. Eluding to her unorthodox take on Jedi-ship, she wanted her gear to capture her personal view on Jedi learning: learning through experience.
Having taken part in a variety of battles against Sith, Pirates, and Mandalorians, Romi wanted to be ready for employment into the field but also ready to establish her own training programs, while she was still developing her own individual approach to the Force. She required something lightweight and versatile so she could maximize her own personal traits and perform the acrobatics and movements that were common in her own form of fighting.
The design of the multipurpose field gear is similar to most conventional outer wear, with an emphasis on materials that aid in mobility but don't subtract from defense completely. At it's base is her bodysuit which is based off the designs of such thinsuits which were made to cover the entirety of the body. She opted for the opposite, having her head, arms, hands, and feet free of coverage. The rest of the suit provides protection against lightsabers and blasters and maintains a limited amount of the resistances it did before it was completely modified.
At some point she stole Coren Starchaser s Jacket, and because she likes it so much it has permanently become apart of the field gear. Formerly belonging to an individual who is a Corellian, Pilot, and Jedi to name a few, it's no doubt the leather making up the jacket has some mild protection against the vacuum of space and extreme temperatures; she just likes the style of it. She doesn't mind the warm either...
Other facets of her gear consists of knee pads, combat boots, and forearm guards that are largely made from Asheran Armorweave as well. The additions were an obvious choice as her previous experience on missions and in duels called for some added padding to maximize her quick thinking and hybrid fighting form. To aid in her Jedi work she has fully employed the common utility belt found on most Jedi with tools suitable for the field, and has topped it all off with a harness located on her back. She took a broken adrenaline stimulator belt and transformed it into a strap harness...don't ask her how she managed to do that.
From thinking carefully about every possible outcome, the construction of this multipurpose armor is a reflection of her go with the flow attitude. It is fitting gear made for a Jedi like Romi.
