A footman suit of armour

"Suit of armour generally possessed by a ghoul, ghost or spectre."
Folio Bruti[src]

A footman was a medieval equivalent of an infantryman; a soldier who is trained to engage, fight, and defeat the enemy in face-to-face combat.[1]

There were many footman suits of armour at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry under possession by ghouls, ghosts, or spectres. They could be aggressive to passers-by, but were particularly vulnerable to the Glacius spell.[2] However, they were resistant to Vermillious.
