Hearth Defender's Scale is a scale armor in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.
When the ancestors of the Junvik tribe crossed the land bridge to the Deadfire centuries ago, this suit of scale mail made the crossing with them. It is the last physical link the tribe has to their ancestral homeland. Every generation the warrior who wears the scales presents the armor to a successor in a hallowed ceremony. The warrior chosen to don the armor speaks the names of his entire family, and pledges on their names to defend the tribe. The armor's many owners have never failed to maintain it, and it is in remarkable condition for its age.
