|Behind the Scenes|
The Steef are a near-extinct race of centaurian people hailing from Mudos on Oddworld.
Steef have biology much in common with numerous Earth creatures--their legs are similar to horses, their torsos are like that of a gorilla's, and their heads are similar to a lion's, with great horns. Steef are a very powerful and intelligent species, and are considered protectors of the Grubb species.
Like many other indigenous species of Oddworld, the Steef have been hunted almost to extinction by some of Oddworld's more industrialized races, including Glukkons, despite their great strength and intelligence. Because of this, the very few remaining Steef have gone into hiding, with some opting for high-cost surgery to fuse their legs and remove their horns in an effort to appear humanoid.
