Orbalisk Armor is unique in that it can only be obtained by subjecting oneself to parasites known as Orbalisks, native to Dxun. The Orbalisks bond with the host and usually drain the host of energy; however, someone with sufficient strength in the Dark Side of The Force (That is, possessing a Dark Side Score equal to his or her Wisdom score) can prevent the Orbalisks from killing them, instead forming a symbiotic relationship with the parasites.

A character with Orbalisk Armor gains DR 10; unlike normal DR, a Lightsaber does not ignore the DR of the Orbalisk Armor. Since Orbalisk Armor is bonded directly to the skin of the wearer, it cannot be removed except through complex medical procedures (Requiring Surgery, as per the Treat Injury Skill). However, since Orbalisk Armor is not worn in the traditional sense, the wearer takes no Armor Check Penalty on Skill Checks for not beings proficient in Heavy Armor.
