who wants to wait until 2014 for lady centaurs?? NOBODY
Centaur Fact: in a way similar to how a boss mare will be in charge of a herd of wild horses, centaur societies are traditionally run and organized by women, while men are in charge of protecting the town/tribe/family and getting into fights. This has clashed somewhat oddly with 19th-century human ideas about what women should be doing with themselves.
Juniper Holiday is most likely the smartest person in the story, and is also a totally kick-ass cow cutter.
bonus: she originally looked like this (how far we’ve come, indeed)
Here’s that giraffe lady I was talkin’ about earlier, Adoni! She was born to a very proper aristocratic family, but was later kidnapped, shuffled from place to place until no one knew who she was, and she fell into the hands of a slaver.
She lost her right arm somewhere in the skirmish of her confusing life, and it has been replaced with a heavy, cumbersome prosthetic that nonetheless gets the job done.
Now she lights the lamps on the outskirts of a prim little coastal town, and sometimes pauses in her work to stare across the quaint rooftops to the ocean. Perhaps she is trying to catch a glimpse of her old life?
