Eminently practical, Bolhur demanded armor that would offer superior protection while hampering him in the least. By “hampering” he did not just mean in movement or weight, his idea suit should be able to withstand the rigors of his wanderlust with little maintenance. This is not to say that Bolhur neglected his armor-to say as much would get your ears boxed- but the regime of spit and polish required for a ‘gentleman’s suit’ was beyond his caring. Save the tassels and gilding of Full Plate for kings and heads of state; a working dwarf cares more for utility than looks.

One look at the armor and its simple to see that it possesses powerful protections. Long ago, the Blood War between the Demons and Devils spilled over to the material plane. Luckily for most of the world, the battle was far away from any major towns or cities. However, this was still no comfort for the Celestial beings that watched over the material plane. So, it was quickly decided to amass as many Celestial and Aasimar beings as possible and drive the Blood war back into its own abyssal planes. However, because the great numbers of Demons and Devils, the Celestrial beings permanetly blessed all of the Aasimar’s armor with Protection from Evil. This spell allowed the Aasimars to get in close to the evil creatures without getting attacked. Once all of them were in position, the Celestial gave the order to attack, which completely surprised the hordes of Lower beings. The ensuring battle raged for days, with high casualties on both sides, but eventually the evil hoards were pushed back into the Lower planes.
