The armor of the storm features gauntlets that can discharge small amounts of electricity to add to Doran's force lightning abilities. The gauntlets use electric conductors in thepalm and fingers that can absorb oncoming electric attacks, the energy from said attack can then be discharged from the palm of the gauntlets. Too much lightning or a powerful blast will overwhelm the gauntlets and send a shock through the wearer and disable the suit. The helmet features a basic HUD and comlinks.
Resistance : The armor of the storm features armor plating made of duraplast and laminate. This of course provides some protection but the real protection comes with the cloak and undersuit. The fabric is weaved with phrik, allowing it to block blaster bolts and most shots from kinetic weaponry. If Doran senses a bolt headed his way he can use the cape almost like a shield against the blast. In addition to the strength of the armor it is also very lightweight.
Electro Gauntlets : The gauntlets on this set of armor are connected to a powerpack on the back of the armor, the fingertips of the gloves can discharge electricity from this powerpack. The electricity can be discharged to enhance his force lightning abilities as well as in a fist fight. For example he could place his hand on someone and deliver a powerful but not devastating shock. If another force user uses force lightning against him he can absorb the energy into the gauntlets, not increasing their power, but nullifying the opponents lightning. The same lightning can be discharged back at the attacker. Another notable feature, or deficit depending on the user, is the pain the gauntlets inflict on the wearer. For someone like Doran this is a bonus as the pain increases his anger and dark side ability.
Painful : Although the armor is somewhat powerful, using the gauntlets does cause a good deal of pain to the user, this does increase anger and dark side ability but takes the focus away from the user and makes the armor difficult to use and limits the number of electric chargers the wearer would use.
Technical issues : If the suit's powerpack is disabled by EMP or ion charges, this will immediately shut down all of the armors functions. However, if the powerpack is destroyed by a saber cut or blaster bolt etc. It will overload the gauntlets and suits functions which has a high chance of electrocuting the user, it may even cause the gauntlets to explode. The gauntlets can only administer around twenty average shocks or five high intensity shocks before a long period of recharging is needed. For this reason the armor is difficult to use in prolonged engagements. Furthermore, if the gauntlets attempt to absorb too much lightning or a very powerful shock they will overload the suits systems and send a powerful shock into the user.
After Doran's duel on the planet Lothal his previous armor was left badly damaged as well as the skin across his chest and torso. This brutal blow was administered by a Sith using force lightning. This caused Doran to become obsessed with the mastery of the ability. He took this into account when designing and building his new armor at the Bastion Of Ren. He created a suit that was light but also defensive against blasters and force lightning itself. The gauntlets of the suit can discharge electricity via a powerpack and conductors running down the arms of the undersuit. The gauntlets can also absorb and nullify an opponents force lightning and help Doran better control and aim his own. However the gauntlets can be disabled if the power pack is destroyed or damaged enough. The basic armor components are forged from duraplast and laminate while the cape, hood, and undersuit are phrik weaved fabric. The helmet also features a basic HUD and comlink.
