Centaurs are creatures found in the Capital Wasteland.

BackgroundEdit

Centaurs are the result of combining various kinds of animals and people and infecting them with the Forced Evolutionary Virus. These abominations are horribly disfigured creatures with little intelligence and an affinity for their super mutant masters.

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Centaurs are, much like their namesake cousins from the west, the result of the Forced Evolutionary Virus being used on a combination of humans and a myriad of animals. The centaurs of the east coast stand almost as tall as an adult human. Their torsos lack arms, and their mouths are filled to the brim with writhing tentacles. Instead of legs, a centaur has multiple human arms which it uses to drag itself along the ground, which confines it to a slow, shuffling mode of travel.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Centaurs are the constant companions of super mutants, used as attack and watch dogs, and as such can easily be an indicator of more serious threats nearby. As individuals, though, centaurs only pose a minor threat to most players. They are decently durable as opponents, and can sustain a rather large amount of damage before succumbing to their wounds, but this is offset by their weak melee attacks in the form of lashing their tongues. They telegraph their close combat attacks quite decisively. Centaurs are also capable of ranged attacks which consists of radioactive spit. The spit does not cause a lot of damage but causes a staggering 5 rads/sec for 15 seconds. They are entirely silent creatures, lacking the ability to produce sounds of any kind, and can sneak up on unwary targets.

VariantsEdit

NotesEdit

  • Centaurs are mostly found accompanying super mutants, or may be found in a group, without their masters. Only rarely are they found alone.
  • Based on concept art, it seems at one point there was to be an "intelligent" centaur.
  • Centaurs lack the dog head alongside the human one like the Centaurs from the first two Fallout games. This may be due to the different experiments with Forced Evolutionary Virus that happened on the east and west coasts.
  • Despite having no visible eyes or ears, they have a very high level of awareness to their surroundings.
  • Centaurs appear to have teeth growing out of their chests, this cannot be used as their weapon though.
  • In Moira Brown's terminal entries, she suggests that centaurs can talk due to the abundance of their tongues.
  • When killed, most centaurs carry no items.
