Tigerskin Waistguard Description
Armor for the lower torso consisting of tassets covering guards for the thighs, all wrapped in a large tiger skin. The overall effect is both aesthetically pleasing and suitably heroic, offering excellent protection from the lower back down to the knees. It is part of a set of heavy armor said to have once belonged to the mythical figure, Acala. It was bestowed upon Taira-no-Sadamori by the Imperial Court, and has been a great treasure of the Taira clan ever since. When the Taira clan was wiped out at Dan-no-Ura, this armor was believed to have disappeared.
