r47 – Last Famous Centaur
May 3, 2013
In the original Narnia books only three centaurs are mentioned by name. Do you remember the one from The Last Battle?
Glenstorm and Cloudbirth are centaurs from the earlier stories in Narnia. Like Glenstorm, Roonwit, from The Last Battle, could read the stars to discern what is going on in the land, or predict what may soon happen.
Roonwit warns King Tirian of the coming danger early in the story. He notes that some great evil hangs over the land and that Aslan has not yet returned despite reports of his appearance. A wise centaur, Roonwit advises Tirian not to act rashly in anger. Yet, because he is also loyal, he follows the king’s orders to quick action.
