Centaurs are thought to be the children of the king of Lapiths, Ixion, and a cloud made in the image of Hera, Nephele. They are wild and lustful, the exception being Chiron who is known for his medicinal skills and teaching abilities. Chiron tutored both Achilles and Aesculapius. Hercules accidentally wounded the noble beast with poison from Hydra. While the poison didn’t kill him it did cause extreme pain. When Hercules demanded Prometheus’s release Zeus required a sacrifice; Chiron offered himself to end the eternal pain.
