Chiron is a Centaur renowned for his wisdom. He is freed by Arkantos and Ajax from bandits in Ioklos and afterwards joins the heroes in their quest. In Egypt, he assisted his companions by leading the force that retrieved the Head of Osris from the Tamarisk Tree. As the heroes later attempt to escape a band of Fire Giants in league with Gargarensis in Niflheim, he sacrifices himself by toppling a large bolder to block the path of the giants, saving his comrades but ensuring his death as the giants overwhelm him. Chiron is later revealed in the expansion to have taken Prometheus's place, doomed to an eternity of torture as a vulture tears at his liver. Though he appears as a guardian of Mount Olympus in the expansion pack campaign, he is likely there simply as a random hero, as this version of Chiron is a unit normally trainable by the worshipers of Hades, and not the regenerating hero unit from the original campaign.
Chiron is a hero unit who possesses abilities similar to those of the Centaur unit. His special ability allows him to fire three arrows at once though this is only available in the campaign.
Chiron was originally a god of healing in Thessalian mythology, but later became an immortal Centaur in the more widely accepted Greek mythology. Although Centaurs were usually wild and unruly, Chiron was the exception. He was noted for being wise and his knowledge of healing was legendary. He was the tutor of many notable heroes, including Theseus and Achilles.
