The Centaurs were wild creatures with the body of a horse and the torso and head of a man. Chiron, a particularly wise and learned centaur, became the private tutor of several heroes, including Jason and Achilles. When he was hit by a poisoned arrow during battle, Chiron was granted mortality by Jupiter and found his resting place in the stars. Hence what we call the Centaurus constellation today.
