Description

When I found you starving in the Khitan jungles,' he said abruptly, 'exiles from your kingdom, you swore to serve me.
~ The Hour of the Dragon

The politics of the empire of Khitai are mysterious to those who come from the Western kingdoms. Khitan warriors might have allegiance to a clan, a faction, a city-state and, of course, the Emperor himself. They might have allegiance to all of them at the same time.

This armor is made in imitation of the armor worn by the imperial bodyguards of the Emperor. While it is made with lesser materials, it still offers significant protection. There is an art to making the armor ornate enough to awe the peasantry, but not so ornate that it offends the nobility.

The Exiled Lands is a melting pot of races and castes, so it is perhaps unsurprising that such armor exists in such an uncivilized place.

This open-faced helm protects the neck and head, while the horsehair tail makes the silhouette of the officer easily recognizable on the battlefield. In civilized Khitai, where the lower castes would not dare to challenge an officer, this is probably practical. In the west, this is more likely to make them a target.
