Centaurs. The creature from Greek mythology, half man, half horse. If you think about it, actually, they’re more than half horse. I’d say 2/3 horse would be more accurate.
Gabrithon is a well tanned, golden haired Centaur. He is fierce and very skeptical of Filynora. He comes from a male-dominated culture that places very little value on females, and as Filynora is a female, he does not think very highly of her. Centaurs are very fierce fighters and forge swords and carve and use bow-and-arrow to fight. Their height has them living in shelters lifted very high off the earth. Their homes are basically tents that can be moved to different places depending on where food sources are. They live deep in the forests and are partially nomadic, but they do have permanent settlements where their are fruit trees and ample deer.
Unlike most stories, Dwarves are not the natural enemies of Elves. Centaurs are. They live in close proximity to each other and are very distrustful of one another. Dwarves will be covered in a future post, but for now let me close with this: Gabrithon, once he trusts you, is fiercely loyal. Can he learn to trust a Human female?
