Equius is a really underrated character, and when he is brought up it’s usually just for jokes about him needing towels or in conjunction with Nepeta.
But in reality he’s like this awesome mechanical genius who builds fully functional battle robots and working bionic arms for his friends; at the human equivalent of 13 self-taught over the internet. That’s only 13 years of experience, much of it spent as a grub or small child, no matter what your ageing headcanon, while being raised by a horse-cow-butler.
Plus he is literally the strength equivalent of Thor, his STRONGjump is literally insane.
Do you even lift?
also let me point out we’ve only just recently managed to create a prosthetic robotic arm that an deal cards and tie shoelaces
MEANWHILE EQUIUS’S ROBOT ARM FOR VRISKA WORKS LIKE A FUCKING NATURAL ARM??? AND THE FINGERS AND HAND AND WRIST TOO???
and don’t even get me started on aradiabot
