The extraterrestrial race known as the Centaurians originated in the Milky Way Galaxy from the planet Centauri-IV in a region known as the Beta Centauri star system. They further expanded to the neighboring Alpha Centauri star system, where they coexisted with various other inhabitants such as the Alpha Centaurians of Arima and the Centurii of Centuri-Six.
The species are blue humanoids with red crest on their craniums. The Centaurian people after thousand years of development have split into two sects, based on the religious beliefs. The first sect is the Habaktu, they are followers of the Circle of Life, which is their people's holy path and is guided by sharing a oneness with the deity Anthos. The second sect is known as the Akuun, those without faith. They eventually become a spacefaring and make contact with humanity in the year 2990 AD.
Culture, Ethology and Biology
The native Centaurian language is a system of grunts, clicks, and whistles, but they are able to speak other languages such as "English", but it is painful for them to speak for too long without resting their throats.

They have a natural connection to their living world and its ecosystem, which is particular strong in their warrior-shamans. This connection can appear like psychic abilities to others species.
In the same way, the Centaurians can "feel resonance" with their fellows. However, a Centaurian can lose this ability, known as the Way, and therefore not be felt.
Reproduction/The Circle of Life
Reproduction is the only purpose for intimate relations among them, and therefore they haven't interest for relationships with non-Centaurians. It is plausible that the crest (Tahlei) has a role in their sexuality.
