Equicephs use feints and pincer maneuvers to get the better of their enemies in combat. They rehearse their tactics ahead of time so they can work together fluidly when facing opponents. While they value slaves as property, they routinely sacrifice them in crafty gambits that enable the equicephs to gain the upper hand in battle.
