An awsome multi-legged creature that most people hate for no logical reasoning. There are well over 3,000 species of centipedes in this world, many of which can grow well over a foot and a half in length. Centipedes are the companions of the elite. Any amature trying to handle a centipede will probably get bit; they'll probably deserve it too.
I have a pet centipede. He is better than you, and your children.
