Centaurs are mutated creatures in Fallout and Fallout 2.

BackgroundEdit

Main article: Centaur

Centaurs were created by the Master. The creation process involved tossing a varied mix of humans, dogs and other types of animals into a Forced Evolutionary Virus nutrient vat, to be infected by the virus, and then see what mutant chimera emerged as the virus produced rapid and unpredictable mutations. As a result, centaurs can differ quite radically in physical appearance from one another. However, all known centaurs are somewhat humanoid in appearance.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Centaurs are approximately the size of a small bear, with a large, misshapen torso and six humanoid arms that serve as legs. A cluster of wriggling, fleshy tentacles bloom out from their underside, frantically scrabbling at the ground around them. Branching out from their front halves are a pair of long, thick necks, with a canine head on the right and a humanoid one on the left. The canine head has a thick metal collar around its neck adorned with spikes - not unlike an ordinary dog collar.

Both heads seem to be capable of individual thought, as the dog head can be seen snapping at the human head. It is theorised that centaurs are not created by the FEV alone, as they also seem to live quite successfully in heavily irradiated environments.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Centaurs frequently travel in packs with floaters. They encompassed a large bulk of the Master's armies and are commonly found with the nightkin and other remnants of the Master's army who roam Northern California. The centaur, so named for its many malformed legs, is tough and strong, but quite stupid.

VariantsEdit

CentaurEdit

Animcentaur

The average centaur is muscular and tough, and is as dangerous in close quarters as it is at range. They originate from the Mariposa Military Base, and often seen together with super mutants.

Mean centaurEdit

Animcentaur

Mean centaurs are even more durable than their normal counterparts, and far more aggressive. Just like normal centaurs, they travel alongside super mutants and floaters.
