Name: Centaur

Features: Top half of a human, body of a horse.

Source: Greek Mythology

Habitat: Greece

Centaurs were said to be the offspring of Ixion, son of Ares and a cloud.

They were either depicted as wise, strong and admired or wild, destructive and untamable, depending on which half ruled.

These mythical hybrids could be wise, peaceful and strong figures in total control of their ability to be agile and powerful swift archers.

They could definitley prove to be worthy and capable allies in the quest for the greater good.

If the animal instincts ruled, they acted like wild party crazed creatures capable of major havoc and pillaging using sticks and broken branches as weapons as they tried to satisfy their lusts.

No-one would want to have to confront a herd of this unruly version of these beasts - reason was beyond their comprehension.

Watch a short clip of this mythical hybrids father Ares fighting it out in the popular online game Smite!
