This set of armor sized for a small character consists of a polished mythral breastplate with additional plates that protects the upper legs and arms, and is worn over black leather armor that covers the rest of the body. The center of the breastplate has large cracked hole in the front center that exposes the black leather beneath it. A black, leathery, and once pickled human right hand is nested in within the hole. The knees are covered by two similar human hands. When unattended or unobserved the hands writhe into different poses. When the wearer is grappling the hands move purposefully to aid the wear as the wrestling special quality. Also the black hand in the center of the chest will hold any item readied that the wearer gives it as a free action.
When worn by Helana the Child Eternal this armor has one additional function, refereed to as the Father’s Protection. The Father’s Protection is triggered by two conditions the first is when anyone would successfully attempt to plunge a steak into the heart of Helana. The second is when Helana is about to be reduced below zero hit points. The hand in the center of the chest reaches out, and destroys the steak or negates the attack. Helana is then subjected to the spells of harm and freedom of movement. Father’s Protection requires no action to activate it, but will only function once per week.
The armor can be damage, broken, and destroyed normally but it will reform at Helana’s side at nightfall, after one week. It loses this ability once Helana is killed once and for all.
Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, grease, gentle repose, freedom of movement, harm.
