Which is also the physical description of the East-Asian [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinnara Kinnara]]; with the exception of conflicting Indian literature of demigods with the same name, like the ''Mahabharata'' which describes the Kinnaras as horse-centaurs.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'''s centaurs are a fiercely independent society of forest-dwelling stargazers, who tend to be distrustful of humans and dangerous with a bow. However, a few help out when Harry gets lost in the forest, as well as terrifying Umbridge in a most satisfying way. It's implied outside of the main books that they are a OneGenderRace, and the fact Firenze is so popular with the human girls he teaches after becoming a teacher at Hogwarts may indicate how they reproduce.
** Then again, with the canonical disdain centaurs evince for humans (muggle and wizard alike), it may be that a [[MisterSeahorse certain trope]] often seen in fanfiction for the series may apply to the propagation of the centaur species.
