Centaurs are brilliant thinkers, gifted artisans, and formidable warriors. These muscular taurans have a human head and torso fused to a horse's body. Centaurs tend to be self-important an often look down on others, in particular, Satyrs. They neither seek nor appreciate admiration from lesser creatures and fiercely protect their own property.

There is a herd of them at Grunhold, in Fablehaven under the leadership of Graymane, and some at the Herdlands in Wyrmroost under the leadership of Amulon. Though generally aloof, they have forged alliances with caretakers in times of emergency.

In Grip of the Shadow Plague, two Centaurs, Broadhoof and Cloudwing, were the first Centaurs to appear in the series. They were Centaur scouts when two of their team were suddenly turned into dark Centaurs and attacked them. They fled to the nearest location dark creatures cannot enter, near the Pond surrounding the Fairy Queen's Shrine where their dark adversaries could not follow. The other creatures who took refuge there, especially the Satyrs were not too happy about this as the Centaurs seemed to be annoyed by their presence. The two species are known to not get along very well. The Centaurs later joined the final battle in a desperate attempt to get rid of the shadow plague. During this battle, Broadhoof lost his life in Kurisock's Domain in a desperate struggle between light and shadow. The other Centaurs did not think his death was worth saving all of Fablehaven, showing that they feel that they are more important than everyone else.

In Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary, the Centaurs owned the first horn of a Unicorn which they treasure and keep as the Soul of Grunhold, heavily guarded. They refuse to lend it to anyone, even in a time of dire need as Graymane, the leader of the Centaurs at Fablehaven made clear.

In Wrath of the Dragon King, some Centaurs lives at the Herdlands, although, their domain switched to the Adjoining Meadows, the Barrows, and Lackluster Woods after the Taurans there forced Kendra, Seth, Tanu, Calvin, and Eve off the Safe Road.
