Equium (in full: Equium auf der Zorazs; born October 31, 1987) is a red fox furry who lives in Birmingham, United Kingdom. He is a member of staff at NordicFuzzCon, having previously worked for ScotiaCon and Frantic Eufuria.

Equium is an amateur composer, and often composes "Personal Theme Tunes", as well as scene-setting orchestral pieces. He mostly makes use of the orchestra in a self-defined "Classicalism" genre, but also writes ethereal ambiance and pop-esque piece. His character is a red fox with a royal blue nose.
