Descriptions are example(s) from a single individual. Variations may be numerous, and dependent upon species, gender, age, location, and other variables.

Centaur [Adult male - prime]

This fine stallion is the pride of the centaur nation. A sleek and battle scarred coat flows into a smooth and muscular torso. His arms are large and strong speaking of the battle readiness that he has.

  • Alignment: Neutral

Centaur [Adult male - aged]

This older male centaur looks strong even yet for his age. His back is becoming bent with age but the muscles underneath his coat and in his torso speak of reserves of strength he still has.

  • Alignment: Neutral

Centaur [Adult female]

This fine mare of the centaur nature appears to be in her middle years. There are grey hairs in her coat and tail that mar the natural colour. However she still has a great deal of muscle in her arms and legs.

  • Alignment: Neutral

Centaur [Young male]

This young unbloodied colt is on his way to stallion hood. His muscles are still weak, though strong when compared to a human. His coat shines with youth and a lack of scars that older centaurs have.

  • Alignment: Neutral

Centaur [Young female]

This young mare is more of a filly than an adult centaur. She has long thin legs and a sleek unscarred coat. Her tail switches back and forth with impatience and she looks like she is about to run off.

  • Alignment: Neutral


  • No special uses

Special Notes

  • Usually found in herd of three centaurs.
  • Seen during the daytime
  • If attacked, will exclaim in Uberwaldean: "You people are so uncivilised."
  • Males carry an ash spear or a two-handed axe and adult males can launch special attacks:
The roan centaur attempts to launch a powerful attack.  The roan centaur thrusts at Shimodo Mistblade with his ash spear but he deftly parries the blow with his Omagen.
