Centaur Bones (minor spoiler)

I have a small problem with the centaur bones found all across the Necropolis and the Bone Palace;
name the skull of said skeletons. They have flat-faced human skulls, and we know for a fact there is no known centaur species with a complete human-flat face.
The Maguuman centaurs had somewhat bovine faces, the Elonian centaurs looked like gazelles, and the shiverpeaks weren't exactly mother's finest either. So did they replace the skulls of the centaurs, since Joko didn't like them? I mean, it would (ironically) make sense that Joko would use the bones of centaurs as construction and replace the skulls with humans who defended/harbored the centaurs

(btw, is there a way to show pictures instead of links?)

    Mhm, you are right.
    Maybe the artteam should take a look at that.

    Otherwise, no, there is no way to show pictures instead of links. Something that is regreted by most of the community and even Gaile, but it seems like their security is defending that change.

    hhmm.. interesting..
    but that begs the next question, where did joko find a humanskulled centaur to raise? or did he really stitch a human and horse together?

  • He switched them. Awakened Blademasters, Blademaster Guards, and joko's elite Guard all used this model in GW1. Concept art just for an easy side view. Also some of the Awakened look like mummified tengu.

    The blademasters wore masks of horse faces, but we never actually saw them with horse faces. (which is why I linked the awakened monk, which is maskless, rather than the mesmer which is a female centaur with a human face mask)

    The awakened defilers looked more like charr. They had a furless charr tail, and had teeth on their skull rather than a beak.

    Well, guess he, being a necromancer, switched body parts on his soldier (why not if this would make them stronger)
