The extraterrestrial race known as the Centaurians originated in the Milky Way Galaxy on the planet Centauri-IV[1] in the Alpha Centauri star system,[2] 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,[citation needed] 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.[citation needed]

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.[citation needed]

Here some terms used for Centaurian matters: Centaurian Dictionary

The Centaurians' language can possibly be written in runes.[3][4]


Yondu also saw the "spirit of Anthos" within Asgardian Thor, God of Thunder, intending to gave him the offering of his bow.[5]

Chandra mentioned "Gods" and not a single one.[6]


The Centaurians are humanoid marsupials.[7][8]

Their crest, the Tahlei (often confused for a fin),[9] is supported by a bone crest.[10]

Ecosystemic Relations

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.[10]

The Way

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.[11]

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.[12] It is plausible that the crest (Tahlei) has a role in their sexuality.[9]

Sub-species and powers

Some individuals are said to be "gifted" by the the gods, including Chandra, an empath.[6]


The only recorded centaurian mutant, Photon, possess the powers of flying and produce optic blasts. She was ostracized from her people for being different, named a Kavkov ("demon").[7]


Like the people of Earth, the Centaurians were experimented on by the Kree and created another race of Inhumans.[13]

Powers and Abilities


Some Centaurians demonstrate rudimentary psychic abilities. Centaurians as a species are natural mystics. They posses intuitive mystical sixth sense perception that permits them limited empathic relationships with other life forms. The higher the lifeform, the more limited is their empathic potential.

Centaurians can sense foreign bodies or substances or focus on specific elements within a specific area. Centaurians also sensitive to mystical beings and forces and is able to detect their presence.[citation needed]
