Equus is the easiest to defeat out of all the Deadlords, as he utilizes the worst magic type in the game, alongside having a relatively low Attack Speed, a result of him wielding the cumbersome Bolganone tome. He should be defeated by practically any character with ease. However, don't completely let your guard down, as a Bolganone Critical hits for 86 damage, and due to Resistance being extremely low on physical units, poses a real risk of one-shotting your units.

The Deadlords' names are Latin words for the animals of the Chinese zodiac. The zodiac's seventh sign is the horse, which in Latin is equus.

Equus' Japanese name, Sieben, is the German word for the number 7.


  • It is likely that Equus was assigned his Awakening name and class due to the fact that the other magic-wielding Deadlords were already using all non-unique promoted magical classes; furthermore, there is no Bishop class in Awakening and the original FE4 Deadlords had no mounted units among them.
    • With his name being Latin for horse, it's appropriate for him having been aside the horse-mounted class.
