Centaurs are creatures found in the world within the Schooled in Magic series. They were created by the Faerie and abandoned when the Faerie retreated. They now exist on the fringes of human society.
Since there are no female centaurs, male centaurs must find human women to impregnate. Male offspring are centaurs, and the birthing will kill the mother. Due to this fact discouraging most human females from wanting to mate with a centaur, male centaurs will use their ability to affect the female mind and seduce them.
