The Exceptional One's Cuirass Description
Body armor featuring a double-plated design with fastenings on the right side. Made from tiny inverted scales, the Shima family crest featuring oak leaves is emblazoned at its center. The sleeves are molded plates which aid maneuverability, whilst still presenting the look of heavy armor. This set of armor was owned by Shima Sakon, the tactician who served Ishida Mitsunari. Sakon was a man who possessed keen intelligence, his tactics keeping Tokugawa Ieyasu in check. As a military commander, he was both courageous and wise, and touted as being "too good for Mitsunari." The navy blue thread binding on the black lacquer scales are meant to be a reflection of Sakon's intelligence and fidelity.
