Surprisingly, a centaur raav displays considerable intelligence. It tends to engage its enemy in combat by breaking through opposing lines, trampling those that fall, culling the wounded from the ranks and finally surrounding and killing all survivors mercilessly.

A centaur raav stands about 8 feet tall and weighs about 500 pounds. This type of undead can be made with a create greater undead spell of caster level 15th or higher and only on the Negative Energy Plane or on the Plane of Shadows.
