"…This armor is worth far more than your life."
―Phasma and KM-8713[6]

Phasma's armor was the unique stormtrooper armor of the First Order Captain Phasma.[4] Phasma had the armor polished in chromium, which had been salvaged from a Naboo yacht that had once belonged to Emperor Palpatine of the Galactic Empire,[1] the First Order's precursor.[4]

The chromium finish on the armor helped reduce radiation, but Phasma primarily wore it as a symbol of past power. Phasma also wore her armor with a traditional First Order armorweave cape. Her armor's gauntlets were modified and precision-crafted for crushing.[1] Phasma claimed that not even a Wookiee, beings capable of ripping limbs from their sockets with little effort, could crush this armor, though when she was threatened she chose to relent rather than see if her boast was true.[7] Her armor was also blaster fire-proof, as exampled when Rose Tico failed to kill her with an SE-44C blaster pistol.[8]

Behind the scenes[]

Phasma's armor in The Force Awakens was made of steel because of the character's last-minute addition to the film. On The Last Jedi, costume designer Michael Kaplan's team had time to plate the costume with silver instead.[9]

  3. Phasma takes place a few weeks before the beginning of Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire, which begins during the events of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, which is dated to 34 ABY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. SWInsider.png "Resistance Revisited" – Star Wars Insider 190 establishes that the events of Star Wars Resistance Season One take place thirty years after the Battle of Endor, which corresponds to 34 ABY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary places the beginning of Star Wars Resistance half a year prior to Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. Therefore, the year 34 ABY begins at least half a year prior to Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, and since a few weeks is shorter than half a year, Phasma must be set between "The Recruit" and Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, thereby placing it in 34 ABY. As Phasma's armor is created on Parnassos in a chapter set nine years before the present day events, it must have been forged in 25 ABY.
