The Cavalry Cycle

First Night in Barracks

In this setting, centaurs are made from normal men. What's that like for the men?

Captain Fletcher Gives the Talk

In Grand Normandy, centaurs are made from men who volunteer to be transformed. Why would people do that?

Dialogue: Agility Class

A centaur is as strong as a horse and as agile as a man—given proper training.

Dialogue: At the Mirror

Know thyself. All over again. And know the other guys, too.

Dialogue: Our Little Lacey

Our lads are complete stallions below the waist. And it all has to get wired to the brain somehow.

Brief Dialogues:

Beer for My Horses

Cf. the Lapiths and Pholos.

Lecture Hall and Pub

How did Grand Normandy come to have the Dedicated Cavalry?

The Class of '16

The six recruits followed here are only this year's class. Last year, there were different recruits.

The Monster at Night

Not all the transformations go well.

Dialogue: Night Archery

Strong as a horse, agile as a man, tough as both together. Magical, too? Cool!

Dialogue: Chevalin

They're all horsey, now. But some are horsier.

Dialogue: What's Owed

Carlin lies. He lies nobly, but he lies.

Returns

What happens when the lads go home to the people who knew you before the transformation?

Former Pupil

How much can you change and still have people recognize you as the same person?.

Last Day of Class

Looking Forward

The history lecture in "Lecture Hall and Pub" mentions that Prince Hugh, the founder of the Dedicated Cavalry, is still alive but in his nineties, as of 2017. So look a few years forward.
