9. VIII - Centaurs
45th Aprarl 3782, 9th Eon
The mountains and caves of the North East. Even occupying the ruins of ancient human civilizations.
They're height usually measures about ten feet tall, with average length of a horse.
The centaurs are also a species found with the bestial tribes in the North. And they are just as brutish and violent as their minotaur allies. Essentially, they are like the cavalry of human armies, but far deadlier. Axe wielding barbarians, they smash through anyone who gets in their way, friend or foe to them. But the minotaurs and centaurs constantly fight between one another, saying who is the superior species. Yet they still stick together as war mongering savages. Centaurs however, appear to not need unrelenting violence to keep up their well-being. Yet instead, they merely strive for battle for its pure sport; taking advantage of their sheer size to pummel the life out of anything.
They're origins are also similar to the minotaurs as well. Art work from the 3rd Eon show men having intimate relations with mares. Nothing is really known of the 3rd Eon and previous, but this could also highlight the centaurs' beginnings.
However, whilst centaurs are tremendously mighty creatures, no centaurs have ever been depicted to be leaders of the bestial tribes. They seem to follow the minotaur chieftains that rule over them without question, knowing that the minotaur chieftains will lead them to a life of bloodletting and conflict. And the centaurs are usually the smithies and crafters of the bestial tribes, forging the primitive armour and crude weaponry of the armies they fight along side with. Lastly, centaurs seem to have a keen eye for using a bow and arrow, charging into combat with a flurry of arrows and then drawing out their mighty axes. A talent for ranged weaponry seems to be somewhat lacking in the bestial tribes.
