Heavy cavalry were mounted troops used by the Malazan military and other nations whose primary role was to engage in direct combat with enemy forces. They were generally mounted on large powerful horses and well armoured. They usually carried swords, maces, lances, or battle axes.

Nemil's heavy cavalry were the fearsome cataphracts. They wore heavy armour and round-shields, sat atop massive horses, and fought with lances. They were often used to flank infantry.[1]
