Solanii Helmets

Created by Solan Starworks, the helmets made for Iromakuanhe are structured to protect them in different situations and environments.

More about Solanii Helmets

Made from differing materials dependent on the type of use the helmet will see, they are unique from one another in many ways. Female and male versions exist in all types to better suit the dissimilar horn structure of each gender.

Appearance

The Solanii helmets are oblong, full-face helmets that have extensions for the horns of the wearer. They are rounded on all sides save for where they are open on the bottom, which is an oval-shape opening. There is a transparent visor that can be pushed up or left down over the eyes of the wearer and there are two straps on either side of the oval-shaped opening on the bottom with buckle devices attached to them, which when connected offer the wearer the protection that the helmet will not come off. The recreational helmets are transparent while the military-use ones are made up of glassy and non-reflective tiles.

Types of Solanii Helmets

Recreational

Used in Iromakuanhe sports, this helmet completely covers the head of the wearer and is composed of a transparent, inexpensive, but remarkably strong material, Strodirn. Like the military-use helmets, there is a transparent visor that goes over the eyes of the wearer made up of Anti-Reflective Transparent Constructs (ARTCs), a medium strength metamaterial. Also, like the military version, there is a buckle on the underside and comes in both genders to better fit the horns of the Iromakuanhe wearer.

Advantages

  • Protects against heavy impacts
  • Resists light arms
  • Inexpensive and easy to create

Disadvantages

  • Cannot be repaired and must be replaced
  • Offers poor protection from particle weapons and should not be used as a defensive combat armor

Military-use

Created for the Astral Vanguard using a composite material made of both regenerative and electrical components that has heavy protection and is moderately inexpensive. This helmet employs Radio which allows the wearer to communicate with others with ease. There is a transparent visor that goes over the eyes of the wearer made up of Anti-Reflective Transparent Constructs (ARTCs), a medium strength metamaterial. There is a locking mechanism in the form of a buckle underneath the chin that protects the helmet from releasing from the user at any inopportune times. It comes in both male and female versions that both contain the horns of the wearer and offer protection to them.

Advantages

  • Protects against kinetic shocks and deep armor penetration
  • Easy to repair in and out of the field
  • Inexpensive and easy to create

Disadvantages

  • Moderately expensive
  • Limited regenerative properties
