The Centaur Chiron is an important figure in Greek mythology. He is referred to as the son of titan Cronus and the Oceanid water-nymph Philyra. He was described as a great healer, and worshipped as a teacher and tutor of the ancient world. 


Chiron is related to the teaching and mentoring of heroes. He is distinguished from the rest of its kind for his nobility and wisdom in the areas of medicine and astronomy. He appears in many myths, most importantly the one in which he is said to have been a teacher of Achilles.
