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.

Chiron is freed from bandits in Ioklos by Arkantos and Ajax and afterward joins the heroes in their quest. In Egypt, he assists his companions by leading the force that retrieved the Head of Osiris 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 boulder to block the path of the giants, saving his comrades but ensuring his death as the giants overwhelm him.
Though he appears as a guardian of Mount Olympus in The New Atlantis campaign, he is likely there simply as a generic hero, as this is the version of Chiron normally trainable by the worshipers of Hades, and not the regenerating hero unit from the Fall of the Trident campaign.
In the campaign, Chiron has a special ability that allows him to fire three arrows at once and also can recover from falling in battle.
