|A typical male Centauri.|
Appearance and PhysiologyEdit
Centauri are brown-skinned humanoids, with two pairs of legs instead of the typical one pair. They also have sucker-like hands and feet, and elf-like ears.
The Centauri have had interstellar drive for over 3,000 years. One of the first solar systems they visited was the Sol System, and a blue planet orbiting it. Their encounters with the native humans later became part of their mythology.
In the 21st century, a probe from that system entered the Alpha Centuari system. The Centauri made official first contact with humanity, and shared much of their technology with them. Later, they willingly became part of the Earth Republic.
The Centauri are a peaceful society, who mostly eschew violence and prefer to negotiate. However, they can and will defend themselves if necessary.
- Despite being a species influential to humanity, they were never seen until 2013.
- Originally, the fairies were explained as allowing humanity to become an interstellar empire; they were upstaged by the Centauri later.
- They are named for the system they reside in, which itself is named after the mythical centaurs they resemble.
- The sci-fi series Babylon 5 also features a race named Centauri, who also shared technology with Earth. However, this is completely coincidental, as williezk has never watched Babylon 5.
- A Centauri male named Jaxonga Melmark was a crewmember on the USS Titan. Jaxonga was also mentally insane and seemed to be pretty violent.
