Bio:

Mail was widely used for the manufacture of armor for centuries, but changes in weaponry and tactics made it less popular. It consists of small interlocking rings of iron or steel wire.

A mail shirt, also called a byrnie, may be worn under clothing; to do so during a duel is considered a serious breach of honor.
