Background and Inspiration Edit

All variants of the Hylian Soldier Armor other than Oocca, Eldin, and Faron variants were included in a standalone mod before being integrated into Relics of Hyrule. Oocca, Eldin, and Faron armor variants were added in version 6.3.

Lore concerning many sets of armor is outlined in the Chronicles of War, three of which were included in the standalone mod. Certain variants require various volumes of the Chronicles for crafting, the implication being that the player learns of a variant by reading a certain volume of the Chronicles of War.

The Hylian Soldier Armor and its variants were made to provide heavy armor options for players as well as to establish lore for the Last Great War of Hyrule. They serve to illustrate the nuances of the Hylian Army and to establish the roles and desperation of Hyrule's soldiers.

Hylian Blue Ring Armor was originally called Hylian Sheikah Armor, but the name was changed to avoid confusion.

Hylian Lanayru Armor bears the symbol of the Gerudo because the symbol associated with the Dragon God Lanayru is used by the Zora. The opportunity was used to connect Gerudo Desert and Lanayru Desert, and to allude to a history for the Gerudo tribe.

The Hylian Dark Armor serves as a counterpart to the Hylian Lanayru Armor. While the motifs of the Hylian Dark Armor represent the state of the Gerudo during the Last Great War of Hyrule, the motifs of the Lanayru Armor represent the Gerudo's past.

The Hylian Oocca Armor bears the symbol of the Winds, which is seen on the Sail in The Wind Waker. This was likely to establish the connection with the Oocca being beings from the sky, and the City in the Sky dungeon in Twilight Princess also shared the theme of the wind.
