Man Anaea you have to look around for them mythical creatures... AN OWL!

Sorry but Centaur led me to Harry Potter which led me to owls, and I realize we need one some time. After Elephants, before swamp development.

Wait for the centaur today. I'm almost halfway through... Eh, see with REdoing it, it's harder. Had to paraphrase all Artimidor's work and rearrange into categories and add new stuff... Anyway... And yeah! Why don't we have some owls too, there is one mentioned in the Wizard of the White Tower.

Here's the "rebrushed" centaur. I took Artimidor's description and simply redid into categories. Maybe he will want to add some more details to it though.

Centaur

Centaurs are but one of many kinds of powerful creatures bred by sorcerers during the War of the Chosen (approximately 9500 b.S.). The combination of a human and a horse, centaur was a quick, strong, and fierce warrior.

Appearance – Centaur is the unification of a horse with it’s rider by magical means.
Some sources tell us that originally, soldiers were made into centaurs as a punishment for treacherous deeds. On the other hand, it may be that mages did it intentionally, as a means of warfare. The creature's horse part resembled the horse, and the human part resembled the human it was created from.  

Special Abilities – Centaurs were extraordinarily strong and quick in battle.

Territory – The centaurs practically disappeared from the world after the War of the Chosen. The reason for that was because the knowledge of their creation died with the mages. They do appear in narrations of later times, as guards of magical places, and such, but it’s very unlikely there are any at all left today.

Habitat/Behavior - During the wars centaurs moved in armies. If they served as guards in some tower or palace, or as mage's bodyguards, they lived and moved with them also. The "mending" process involved serious damage on a man's brain, left brain, the intellecft, in particular, leaving him with almost only instincts of the right brain. Centaurs preserved their ability to talk, but were only able to reply to orders. They were not society creatures; simply cold amd fearless "fighting machines", which was intended by the creators.

Diet - Centaurs did not have a particular diet. Since they had no growing period, being created straight into the army, they ate what all other fighters ate during their travels. Usual  human food.

Usages – Centaurs were used in great numbers in the War of the Chosen. The combination in their being produced many advantages on the battle field.

Mating - centaurs were created genderless and, without a magician, could not reproduce itself. This offered control over the population, and also, it is said, the genderlessness made them fiercer in battle.

Myth/Lore – In the mythological tales of ALGERON there is a story of a horrible massacre that happened near Antiragon. There, an army of centaurs only was lured into dense undergrowth where it was slaughtered helplessly by the opposing force as the transformed warriors were not able to free themselves.

It is also very likely - though not fully confirmed - that the human tribe of the Centoraurians derive the name of their tribe from the creature of the Centaur as especially the people of this tribe were involved deeply in the War of the Chosen. At least it is also the already mentioned ALGERON who recounts the mythological ritual of a mage creating the very first Centaur from the body of a condemned man from Naios and his horse.

No. You see the reason we are redoing these is because they don't follow the format.

Overview.
Appearance.
Special abilities.
territory.
Behavior.
diet.
mating.
other crap.

You're missing some, and I doubt Arti would like that you cut off a few lines of his stuff.

Well, there isn't anything in thosethat are missing, I don't think. They don't mate; it doesn't say how they behave particularly, and it should be pretty obvious, they aren't really a species after all; dunno what they eat.... blah, blah...
Oh, yeah, I might have cut something off, I was trying not to be repetitive. I'll see, thanks.

if you don't know what they eat then make it up!

if there is nothing on the site about it then you can just add your own little touch

Yeah, the Cartashian Bear, for instance, is as much mine, probably more, as it is Artimidors. Or the Gryph, or exechon. Man Arti has done a lot of stuff hasn't he?

There I added Habitat/Behavior and diet (somewhat). I emailed Artimidor and he said that since they were "long ago" creatures, stuff like "mating" is not important. He'd like to expand the myth/lore section, but I don't really know what to do about it... just make up a sotry about a crazy centaur?

Here's a hint, make it as long as you want don't bother paraphrasing just make it the longest most detailed thing you can, yes, make up myth and lore and stories and all that crap. Make it yours.
