Trooper Tuesday: Mercenary Samurai
"You believe you have learned all there is to know about being armorsmith. You haven't! I know far more than you ever will, but still there are a few lessons I could teach you. Learning these things will not be easy for someone such as you. It will be expensive in both time and in credits."

The Mercenary Samurai embodies the essence of a warrior from a distant future. Clad in the Reinforced Insulated Sheath, this heavy yet flexible battle armor provides equal protection to all areas of the body. Its customization options are as diverse as the colors of the galaxy, from the deepest blue to the darkest black to the fieriest red. This armor, a masterpiece of craftsmanship, can be further fortified with a personal energy shield, rendering its wearer nearly invincible on the battlefield.
Crafting the Reinforced Insulated Sheath is a true feat of skill and resourcefulness, requiring the expertise of a seasoned armorsmith and rare materials collected from across the cosmos. From the hide of a gurk king to the scales of a giant dune kimogila, and even the bones of a woolamander harrower, this armor is a testament to the lengths warriors will go to ensure their protection. The finishing touch lies in the feathers of a peko-peko albatross from Naboo, creating an awe-inspiring appearance layer.
