Definitions for Centauri

Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word Centauri.


  1. Centauri

    The Centauri are a humanoid species in the fictional universe of the Babylon 5 television series. As a species they bear a close physical resemblance to humans including much of their body chemistry, structure and hair but taxonomically differ greatly, especially in the arrangement of internal and reproductive organs. The species is separated into two sexual genders correlating well with the accepted Male and Female aspects. They are warm-blooded and live-bearing. The females nurse the young in similar fashion to humans, showing some parallel to Earth mammals. Cultural norms are for the males to fashion the head hair into large crests from one side to the other - rather like a sideways Mohawk. The size of the crest was originally used to indicate social status, age and wealth but with the decline of the republic are subject more to fashion - one later emperor in particular was known to follow such and consequently displayed a much smaller crest representative of youth. Females are seen mainly to go shaven headed. The head crests figure on idols of Centauri deities, even those that display hermaphroditic body features.
