Powers/Abilities: Terrigenesis had turned Arvak into a Centaur. He possessed the lower body of a horse and the upper body of a human. He was a trained soldier and wore armor and a helmet to protect his upper body.



(Inhumans IV#1) - Arvak was informed by Ikarys that there were no human threats around. He told Ikarys to resume his watch and then went to a holographic device to inform Medusa and Black Bolt that Attilan was secure in that night.

(Inhumans IV#2) - Arvak and other Centaurs served Ronan loyally. Along with other Centaurs he freed members of the Royal Family from the restraining leashes around their necks. Ronan then asked Arvak to make the calculations needed for another space jump.

(Inhumans IV#3) - He was seemingly one of the Centaurs that helped Ronan defeat Maximus and the Alpha Primitives by capturing their leader Maximus.

(Inhumans IV#4) - He watched the fight between Black Bolt and Ronan. After the fight he was one of the Inhumans that told Black Bolt that he intended to stay in space and even challenged Black Bolt in the name of all the Inhumans that wanted to stay in space like him if Black Bolt decided against their wish. Arvak then ordered other Centaurs to take Ronan away. He stayed on the flying city Attilan in space while the Royal Family returned to Earth.

Arvak's name was mispronounced Avrak by Ronan in Inhumans IV#2.

Like the Bird People and Hidden Ones the Centaurs could become a hostile offshoot of the Inhumans due to their large number. They already proofed in this title that they couldn't be trusted by aligning themselves with Ronan.

I'm not sure that the Centaur seen in the main image was Arvak, but they all looked the same from the distance.
