These front-line fighters use psionics to create formidable armor that can augment their combat prowess and give them a variety of interesting options. Like most psionic classes, the aegis is more commonly found in civilized areas where there are options for education and learning. This is especially relevant for the Aerani and Merani cultures. Psionic aerani shock troopers sometimes select this path, in part to make up for their natural frailty. Psionic gurathi, rare to begin with, seldom choose this class, as they believe the best defense is a good offense.
