My interpretation of Star Wars characters with a Samurai Motif.
You know, the Empire should have gone with this motif for their storm-troopers; would have proved more frightful.
But that'll give a chance to the Jedi and the Light Side since the blades are made by metal, unless they infuse it with the same energy source that are used for the blades. That way, the blades are immune to lightsaber blasts unless the Rebels stabbed them at the back.
THAT armor could take more than one hit.
You have a big talent!
