GREEK MYTHOLOGICAL CREATURES
The centaurs (also kwown as Ixionidae) are a race of creatures composed of part human and part horse. Their first appearance comes from early Greek archaeological finds in which Attic vase-paintings depicted the centaurs as the torso of a human joined at the waist to the horse's withers, where the horse's neck would be.
The centaurs were spawned by the cloud nymph Nephele who was raped by the impious Lapith King Ixion, which is the cause of the Centaurs hatred for the Lapiths.
They inhabited the mountains and forests of Magnesia. They lives in mountain caves, hunted wild animals for food and armed themselves with rocks, tree branches and later built weapons of their own.
