History: (Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Deluxe Edition I#6 – Inhumans entry – BTS) – Stallior and his brother Chiron were born with centaur-like appearances due to hereditary transfer of ten generations of Terrigenated attributes.
(Incredible Hulk II Annual#1 (fb) – BTS) – A group of Inhumans gathered together, seeking to overthrow Black Bolt as the ruler of Attilan, wanting to take over the city themselves. The group included Stallior the Centaur, Falcona, Leonus, Aireo, Timberius and Nebulo. The group attacked the city but they were defeated.
(Incredible Hulk II Annual#1) – Stallior and his allies were put on trial, presided over by Black Bolt and the Oracle. When Stallior tried to turn on the others for his own gain, he was attacked by his allies. Black Bolt stopped the fight and, ignoring the cries of Maximus the Mad that Black Bolt should be the one on trial, the king found the six guilty and sentenced them to imprisonment in the Un-Place in another dimension behind an impenetrable shield. The group was shocked when Lockjaw later teleported the Hulk into the Un-Place as well. Hulk, refusing all offers of alliance from the imprisoned Inhumans, began smashing at the barrier and after several blows, smashed it, freeing the Inhumans along with him. Maximus the Mad teleported to the Un-Place and teleported the group back to Attilan, where he unleashed Hulk on the city while he took the others into his secret lab. After taking them through the lab, Maximus told them of the ancient scientist, who had left behind a deadly weapon that was behind a strong barrier. Maximus hoped the Hulk could break through it and that he could use the weapon to take over Attilan. Back in the lab, Hulk agreed to be friends with the Inhumans and he smashed the barrier, releasing Romnar's substance, which Maximus then weaponized. Maximus demanded control over the entire city and the Inhumans realized he was mad with power and turned against him. When Hulk attacked the Inhumans, Timberius and his allies turned on him, hoping to win the favor of the city so they could seize control of it. Stallior led a charge against him, wrapping the Hulk in chains, then Leonus slashed at Hulk with his claws as Timberius pounded on him but Hulk easily tossed all three aside. As Black Bolt defeated Maximus, Nebulo seized Romnar's weapon. Black Bolt soon defeated Hulk and Maximus and got control of Nebulo's weapon.
(Fantastic Four I#83 (fb) – BTS) – Maximus seized control of the crown, imprisoning the Royal Family (Black Bolt, Triton, Karnak, Gorgon) while using science and hypnosis to keep control of Medusa and Lockjaw. Maximus managed to capture the Fantastic Four (Crystal, Human Torch, Mr. Fantastic, Thing) as well then made plans to conquer the world. Aireo, Stallior, Leonus, Falcona and Timberius continued serving him.
(Fantastic Four I#83) – Maximus had Stallior and the others attend to him in the baths then he forced them to bow after they dressed him for the day. Maximus prepared to activate the Hypno-Ray that would help him attack the human world but the Royal Family and Fantastic Four escaped and destroyed it. Maximus fled (riding on Stallior's back) with his five allies then they boarded a ship into space to find freedom.
(Incredible Hulk II#119 (fb) – BTS) – Maximus took Stallior and the others back to Earth, where Nebulo rejoined the team. Maximus hypnotized the civilians of Costa Salvador, making them mindless slaves while he took over ruling the land. He planned to expand his power outward.
(Incredible Hulk II#119) – When the Hulk attacked, the others fought back, with Stallior using his ball and chain. When the American military attacked, Maximus invited Hulk to join them.
(Incredible Hulk II#120) – While the Hulk held off the military, the Inhumans fought amongst themselves about whether they should turn on the Hulk. Maximus was prepared to kill those in the military so Hulk fought back and Maximus unleashed a giant robot he'd developed. Hulk destroyed the robot and Maximus fled in a rocket with Stallior and other Inhumans.
(Amazing Adventures II#1 (fb) –BTS) – Maximus set up base on a remote island, where he forced Stallior (who he called Centarius), Leonus, Aireo and Timberius to wait on him hand and foot. Maximus prepared missiles to send against the Royal Family in Attilan.
(Amazing Adventures II#1) – Stallior and his allies tended to Maximus while the missiles were launched.
(Amazing Adventures II#2) – Maximus manipulated the Royal Family into fighting the Fantastic Four as Aireo, Leonus, Stallior and Timberius tended to him. Soon, Maximus was captured by the Royal Family, who defeated him and stopped the missiles.
(Silver Surfer I#18 (fb) – BTS) – Maximus and his followers were exiled from the city and forced to live on their own while Black Bolt controlled the Great Refuge.
(Silver Surfer I#18) – When Silver Surfer got close to Attilan, Maximus sent Aireo, Leonus, Stallior and Timberius against him. Stallior knocked Surfer into Leonus' grip and Leonus leaped at Surfer but the Surfer's board knocked Leonus to the side. After Surfer fought the Royal Family, Maximus and his allies attacked Attilan in their air-ship, firing electron bolts on the palace, but the ship was soon repelled by the Royal Family.
(Inhumans I#1 (fb) – BTS) – Stallior and Centarius were appointed to guard the cell of Maximus the Mad. When Maximus began ranting about unseen dangers, the centaurs grew alarmed.
(Inhumans I#1) – Stallior and Centarius went to the Royal Family (Black Bolt, Medusa, Karnak, Triton) and told them about Maximus. Black Bolt put Maximus to sleep with his electron powers.
(Inhumans I#2) – Stallior and Centarius were among the Inhumans who saw the fall of the Kree Kaptroids. They then saw the Inhuman Iridia emerge from a Terrigen cocoon, beautiful and with butterfly wings.
(Inhumans I#5 (fb)) – Leonus, under the control of a Kree energy source, touched Stallior and then Maximus, the source taking over their minds as well. Maximus sought to control Attilan again (recruiting others, like Makus) and captured Quicksilver and Crystal, promising to fire a cannon at them if the populace did not surrender.
(Inhumans I#5) – Leonus and Stallior were chaining up Black Bolt, Medusa and Gorgon when Maximus saw Lockjaw escaping with Karnak and Triton.
(Inhumans I#6) – Black Bolt destroyed part of Attilan with his voice. As he gave a speech, through Medusa, about taking the Inhumans into space, Maximus and the mind-controlled Inhumans, including Leonus, Timberius, Aireo, Falcona and Stallior, prepared to fire a cannon on the Royal Family but they were swiftly defeated.
(Marvel Fanfare I#14/2) – When Quicksilver was accused of stealing the Royal Scepter, Stallior was one of the Inhumans who went after him but Aireo was exposed as the real thief.
(Avengers I Annual#12) – Stallior was present on Attilan, which was now on the Blue Area of the Moon, when the Avengers arrived.
(Fantastic Four: Atlantis Rising#1) – When Attilan was threatened, the Fantastic Four, with Dr. Doom (Kristoff Vernard), shrank it down and returned the city to Earth to save it. Maximus the Mad, with Leonus, Stallior, Nebulo and Timberius, was enlarged but then attacked the heroes.
(Fantastic Four I#401) – With Leonus, Stallior, Timberius and Nebulo flanking him, Maximus ordered the Inhuman ship to go on to Atlantis, where they could claim their land. The Inhumans soon saw the diminutive Fantastic Four (Ant-Man/Scott Lang, Dr. Doom/Kristoff Vernard, Invisible Woman, Thing) escape the shrunken Attilan. Dr. Doom fired a shot at Stallior, causing his mace to misfire and hit Timberius. Dr. Doom then flew into the air, hitting Stallior with a laser pulse.
(Uncanny Avengers III#6) – Stallior was present in
Attilan, at its new location in New York City, as Medusa walked the
(Uncanny Inhumans I#12) – When New Attilan was threatened with attack, Medusa ordered the city to be placed on lockdown. Stallior rushed inside with his fellow civilians before the shields came down.

The "League of Evil Inhumans" is never officially called that in the comics but Stallior is most associated with Falcona, Nebula, Leonus, Aireo and Timberius.
It could be Centarius or Chiron in Uncanny Avengers III#16 and Avengers I Annual#12 but it is likely Stallior.
Stallior and his brother Chiron achieved the same mutation from hereditary transfer of Terrigenated genes, that of a centaur. While both like to wear armor associated with Roman soldiers, Stallior leans more toward using a mace in combat. It is likely rare for brothers to develop the same mutation. Another Inhuman, Centarius, is also an Inhuman centaur, though any connections to Chiron and Stallior is unrevealed.

It is unrevealed in how many of his appearances that Stallior was being mentally influenced by Maximus.
