Centaur

Post by Kaz » Mon Aug 26, 2013 5:31 pm

With the recent-ish rework of the Sidhe race (and subsequent addition of Fae), and the thread detailing the possibility of adding an old player-race called the Icharii, it got me thinking about the 'race name' of Centaur.

From a role-play (and in-game) point of view having a racial category that describes only one of the sub-species could be confusing.

As it currently stands, the Centaur sub-species are all zoomorphic in one way or another.
Wildmen : Part man part ape
Faun : Part man part goat
Minotaur : Part man pat bull
Chiron : Part man part horse (centaur)
Kitsune : Man to beast shapeshifter

I've been looking at various words that have a general meaning for a creature that's made up of other creatures.

Chimera
Hybrid
Theriocephaly (man body, animal head)
Therianthropy (man to animal shapeshifter)

I've also been looking at breaking down the words into component parts

Therian
Therio
Theri
Ther
The
Chi
Ky
Khi
Mera
Maera
Maira

Ideas for the race name

Chimera
Chimaera
Chimaira
Khimaira
Khymaera
Kymaera
Kimaera
Khimaera

Therid
Chibrid
Chybrid
Khibrib
Khibryd
Khibraed
Hirian
Themeran
Thymera
Therchim
Theriod
Theryd
Themaera
Thermae

Can anyone think of a good replacement name that would suit the centaur race better?
