The centaurs are total animals. Actually, scratch that. Really, they're just half animals, with the lower body of a horse and the upper body of a man. But even with their manly torsos, they mostly act like wild animals. The most famous tribe of these horse-men lives on Mt. Pelion in Thessaly, where they spend most of their time galloping around, swilling wine, swiping women, and hitting things with rocks. Yeah, they're not the brainiest bunch.
Note: Chiron, the gentle centaur and teacher of the stars, was totally different from his wild cousins. Don't forget it.
Famous centaurs: Eurytion (who started a war by trying to snatch his half-brother's bride) Nessus (who caused the death of Heracles) Pholus (who got into trouble for giving Heracles too much wine) Chiron (the gentle teacher)
Mostly males (some females called centaurides)
