The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Seeming to be a blend of mannish torso upon the body of a light horse, the centaur has a certain charm and aura of mystery. That is, until you encounter one, for the centaur is a savage and wilder cousin to the great centaurs of legend and will lash out in terrible fury when it deems a threat is at hand. Their hide which varies in color from tan, black, white or roan is valued for its toughness and durability and thus, many will brave the danger of flying hooves and the threat held by these fierce creatures to gain this prize.

An example of a centaur's kick maneuver:
A bay centaur wheels quickly, plants its front hooves firmly on the ground and kicks at you with both hind legs!
Time seems to slow to a crawl as you make a feeble attempt to leap to the side. Your lethargic movement is much too slow to avoid the powerful kick, and the centaur's hooves hammer into you with devastating force!
... 35 points of damage!
Massive blow to your temple drops you in your tracks!
