The Mystic Knights in their armor.

The Mystic Armor is the legendary magical armor used by the Mystic Knights to fight the forces of Queen Maeve and Temra.

Description[]

According to Fin Varra, the Mystic Armor was created long before the time of the little people by ancient ones. They forged the armors from silver and gold, each imbued and reinforced with the power of the elements. Whereas the four original armors' elements being Fire, Air, Water, and Earth, the fifth one is Forest. Regardless, each set of armor has a dragon theme and color scheme that complements its elemental power (red for Fire, white for Air, blue for Water, gray for Earth and brown for Forest, respectively), and were forged to bring peace throughout Island of Kells.

Although a Knight can summon his/her Mystic Armor via his/her Mystic Weapon as a sort of transformation trinket, he/she can only do so after proving his/her right by defeating a Temra Sentinel alone. But even he/she is advised to use their armor only during times of dire need.

Each set of armor provides great protection against harm and comes with a Dragon's Breath Dagger and Battle Gauntlet, located on their left arm, which could unleash fiery energy at their enemies.

List of Armors[]

Original Armors[]

The following are four original Mystic Armor sets prior to the creation of the fifth. Each of them was hidden in their respective hiding place until the would-be wearer arrived to summon it. Mider had displaced each member of his Sentinels of Temra to safeguard the armor and ensure the legend of the Mystic Knights wouldn't come into fruition, only for such a decision to provide the would-be knights a test to prove their mettle instead.

Auxiliary Armors[]

The following is new Mystic Armor forged after the original four sometime prior or during the events of the series. Since this armor never fell into the hands of the Sentinels of Temra, new bearers of these armors must defeat an adversary as formidable as them instead.

Mystic Armor of Forest

Mystic Armor of Forest is the brown and gold armor that currently in possession of Garrett. Forged from the gold and silver reinforced and imbued with the element of forest, the armor materializes around him in a bright emerald aura followed by leaves being blown by the wind, completing the transformation.

Trivia[]

  • Interestingly, Mystic Armor is shown more resistant to damage than conventional armor used during the era where the series takes place and is quite comfortable to wear, despite being made of gold and silver; the former alloy is too soft and heavy to be a suitable material for crafting weapons and armor while the latter, though lighter and more durable, is pale in comparison to steel. Thus, it's plausible that silver is the main alloy to craft the armor with gold for its cosmetics and both alloys then reinforced and altered with their respective elemental magic during their construction.
  • In theory, it is likely that the Mystic Armor is capable of adapting to the person that has earned it.
