Antique Suits Of Armor

Sir Thomas considered the imposing suit of plate mail, the light smoldering upon its surface in deep, almost sooty reds. "Quite an elegant piece. It wouldn't look this good if it had seen any combat, of course, but it's almost certainly ceremonial in any case."

Sir Thomas reached out to touch it, stopping inches short of the burnished metal. "It could be occupied, and you wouldn't necessarily know it. There's a sense of motion - violence, even, - to it somehow. What sort of man would have worn armor such as this?"
