Kiron is a New Olympian, and member of Taurus's security forces that protect New Olympus.


When Goliath, Elisa Maza, Angela and Bronx arrived on New Olympus during the Avalon World Tour, Kiron was one of the first New Olympians to encounter them. He was shocked to see a human. The security force quickly arrested Elisa.

Kiron's unfavorable disposition towards humans caused him to harass the travelers and participate in the riot that led to Elisa's second arrest. Later, Kiron was guarding the prison cells on New Olympus when Goliath arrived to free Elisa. Goliath managed to knock him unconscious. Not long after he made his way by chariot to the travelor's skiff on the beach to try to stop Elisa from fleeing the island. He found Angela and Bronx there waiting. He attempted to capture Angela and fought Bronx until the sun rose and they turned to stone. ("The New Olympians")

Like most New Olympians, he is not very sympathetic towards humans and will become a member of Ekidna's isolationist faction after New Olympus makes contact with the outside world. [1]


Kiron is a centaur with dark skin, hair, and fur.


Real World Background

Kiron is named after Chiron, one of the most prominent centaurs of Greek mythology. Unlike most of the centaurs, who were a wild and unruly rabble, Chiron was wise and noble. He lived on Mount Pelion, and taught most of the great heroes of Greek mythology in their youth, including Jason, Asclepius, and Achilles. However, he came to a tragic end when Heracles accidentally shot him with one of his poisoned arrows. Since Chiron was immortal, he was unable to die from the wound, but was in constant, unending, excruciating pain. At last the gods took pity on him, and allowed him to die, but placed his image in the sky as either the constellation Sagittarius, the Archer, or Centaurus, the Centaur, depending on which version of the myth you read.
