Not all centaurs are creatures of nature, and some seek the allure of cities and civilization. These urban centaurs love to socialize and live within the heart of a metropolis, picking up many of the talents of their humanoid neighbors. Unfortunately, others of their kind ostracize these free-spirited rogues. They can never again return to their forest home, as relations would meet them with only disdain and death. This knowledge drives many to embrace the vices civilization has to offer, and enter into a slow spiral into unhealthy excess. Urban centaurs have a rowdy reputation for brawling, drinking, and gambling. Many offer their services as warriors or bodyguards, but only to fund expensive habits.
