Summary

Little is known about the Sun Guards of Thyrsus, but it is speculated that they were one of the primary inspirations for the armor of the Imperial Royal Guard. Some say that the Sun Guards were founded by a former captain of the Republic Senate Guard, and that he influenced their own body armor and fighting style. Regardless, the Sun Guard use a special kind of martial art known as Dajitte, which bears some resemblance in form to the Republic Senate Guard martial arts style. Dajitte is well-known throughout the Galaxy, and was chosen for the Sun Guards due to the relative ease with which it is learned, as well as its competent fighting styles. It is more deadly than the Republic Senate Guard martial arts style, though nowhere near as savage as Echani.

RPG D6 Stats

For every +1 pip that a character increases her martial arts skill, she may pick one of the techniques from the list of the martial style in which their character specializes. Learning a technique from outside a style costs 10 character points and takes three weeks of training. Characters whose martial arts skill is increased during character creation are eligible to select from the techniques. Characters must also declare which technique they are using prior to making the required skill roll (unless otherwise indicated).

Sun Guards employ a defensive form that protects them from incoming blows. Dajitte practitioners may make up to three reaction rolls in a round with no multiple action penalties (-1D begins on the fourth reaction).
