Physical Description[edit]

A young cervitaur

Cervitaurs are creatures that are very similar in appearance to centaurs. They have the body of a deer but growing out of the neck is a human torso. Cervitaurs may or may not have antlers.


Though they look like centaurs, cervitaurs actually hail from the feywilds. These creatures are actually more similar to fey than one would immediately assume. The race has lived in forests for a long time, as protectors.


Cervitaurs live in small herds. Males stay in small herds of 3 to 5, while females live with fawns in larger herds of 5 to 10. They tend to stay in the wilderness and on the fringes of society. They are treated much the same as centaurs, as they share several anatomic likenesses.
