|Usage and history|
This type of tight-fitting armor was worn amongst the Nightsisters, a group of Force-sensitive women who lived on the planet Dathomir. Such breastplates were segmented, allowing for greater ease of movement, and were secured by laces attached at the back. With their hourglass shape, Nightsister armor had been adapted to accommodate the upper body build of females—it featured more room for the chest and hugged the curves of the hips properly.
Sister Charal, a Nightsister who was stranded on the Forest Moon of Endor about a century before the Galactic Civil War, was known to wear such a set of armor. Other rancor-riding Sisters were also recorded to use them. It was often worn in conjunction with a black grafiform robe and a feathered cape.
Behind the scenesEdit
Years later, illustrator Terryl Whitlatch reused it to portray three unidentified Nightsisters in The Wildlife of Star Wars: A Field Guide, thus implying the armor was a common equipment and not just personal to Charal.
In the defunct Star Wars-themed MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies, Charal's armor was depicted as a single plate of metal adorned with mystical carvings—but this may be artistic licence on the part of the designer, Jason Temujin Minor.
