<section begin="west" /> Centaurs encountered in the Core Region and Mojave Wasteland were created by the Master. 多脚兽的创造过程涉及将各种各样的人类、狗和其他类型的动物混合到强制进化病毒槽中以被病毒感染，然后与病毒产生快速且不可预测的突变，成为某种突变嵌合体。因此，多脚兽在实际外观上可能有很大的不同。然而，所有已知的多脚兽在外表上都是类似人形的。 <section end="west" />
Centaurs of all known varieties are not harmed by radiation, but seem drawn to it, as they are often found in heavily irradiated environments.
So far, the two-headed centaurs have only been encountered on the West Coast, in the Core Region.
In this type of centaur, 上半身变为从嘴中伸出无数触手的没有上臂的人形，Unlike its two-headed "cousins", this kind of centaur uses a ranged attack: a high-arcing, slow-moving saliva projectile that can carry lethal doses of radiation. Oddly enough, it is capable of igniting lingering gas vapors as well. In close quarters, it utilizes a long, three-pronged tongue to whip and slash at any intruders.
This kind of centaur can be encountered both in the West and the East of the former United States.
As the name suggests, they are a bigger and stronger variant of a centaur. Having been exposed to much more radiation than regular centaurs, they have significantly more muscle mass as well as thick clusters of tumors growing from their backs.
An even bigger variety of the evolved centaur, the giant evolved centaur is the largest and most dangerous variation of centaur to be discovered to date.
Behind the Scenes编辑
In Greek mythology, centaurs were creatures that were typically half-human, half-horse. The human part would end at the bottom of the torso, where the hindquarters of a horse would begin.
