Smile and take one for the team.

A Holo-Suit is your basic 'armour' worn by everyone's favourite psycho-cirque du soleil acrobats. True to their name, Holo-Suits incorporate similiar technology to Holo-Fields and it is designed to fuck with your enemy's sensors and senses.


A Holo-Suit or dathedi (meaning "between colours" in the Aeldari Lexicon) is the trademark psychically activated bodysuit worn in place of the thick armour plates used by less advanced races.

As aforementioned, these things use Holo-Field technology which essentially breaks down the wearer's profile into a fractal lightstorm as they move; the faster they travel, the more pronounced the effect. So it is that a charging Harlequin appears as nothing more than an indistinct, prismatic storm that is a proverbial pain-in-the-ass to hit, allowing them to simply avoid blows that would otherwise lay them low.

When a Harlequin Player decides to stop behaving like a Dick and stop moving, his/hers image coalesces back together into a solid image. It is for this reason that Holo-Suits are also known as a "jigsaw" or "domino fields". When the Harlequin stops moving the suit mimics the nearby terrain so that he/she seems to phase out of view.

Of course if actually hit, they provide as much protection as a Wychsuit, which is none at all.
