Centaurs hail from temperate forests and are generally mild mannered, but when provoked, can cause a massive amount of damage with their hooves and weapons.
Centaurs are the proverbial half man, half beast of legends, with the torso and head of a human and the body of a horse, blending from one to the other where the normal human hips would be. Their horse half tends to be more like that of a Clydesdale than a thoroughbred, but when fighting is no longer an option, they have the speed to outrun most of their enemies.
Their horse hide gives them a natural bonus to armor. Centaurs are the only race that can be ridden by other players, but they cannot ride other players or mounts (though they can use vehicles).
