Also Called

  • Centaur Mimicry/Physiology
  • Centauroid
  • Taur Form/Mimicry
  • Tauric Form/Mimicry/Physiology


User either has the lower body of animal, or is able to transform their lower body into other animal forms. Regardless, they gain the abilities from their animal part that don't depend on the head (bite mostly) while keeping their ability to use hands. Note that there are variations who, instead of human upper-portion, have anthropomorphic version of their animal form and do have the bite.
