Firenze is a centaur of the Forbidden Forest herd. In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, he saves Harry from Voldemort while the boy is serving his detention. This earns Firenze the wrath of Bane, another centaur from the same herd, who calls him a common mule.


Firenze is a centaur – a man to the waist with a horse’s body – who lives in the Forbidden Forest. He has white-blond hair, a palomino body and sapphire-coloured eyes. Firenze charges to Harry’s rescue when the hooded figure threatens him in the Forbidden Forest.
