As a daughter of Minister of Martian Affairs Marcus Thompson, Sam has always had easy access to experimental military tech. Developed by former lightbulbs, kitchen-gear and televisions producing company Philips's experimental Philips Nano division, Sam's suit is a prime example of some skilled engineering.
Her suit fits like normal racing outfit, only slightly thicker than normal cloth. It hardens on kinetic impact (like Batman's cape does while being electrified) which protects her from harm while keeping her extremely mobile and able to dodge most attacks with ease.
It's still vulnerable to cutting or stabbing weaponry (that's why the army uses a thicker but less mobile variant of the suit) but Jousts have had their points dulled since the incident of 2681...
Tuner people, not Turner.
A mind that wanders so much, it brings back souvenirs.
I decided to keep a kind of "medievalness" in the way the armor is looking.
Although I didn´t use any refs for the picture playing "Hellgate London" a few
years ago was quite a nice inspiration for my entry.

His STEED, "Sally", as he refers to it, has been with him for decades, though it is evident that she has had wear, the Syndicate has outfitted the STEED with the sturdiest plate they have available to withstand any opponent's lance.
