  Pholus
In Greek mythology, Pholos or Pholus was a wise centaur and friend of Herakles who lived in a cave on or near Mount Pelion.
Pholus, like Chiron, was civilized, and indeed in art sometimes shared the "human-centaur" form in which Chiron was usually depicted (that is, he was a man from head to toe, but with the center and hindparts of a horse attached to his buttocks).
To further account for the unsually civil behavior of Pholus, Apollodorus wrote that his parents were Silenus and one of the Meliae, thus differentiating him genealogically from the other centaurs, as Chiron was known to be.

 Erymanthian Boar
Pholus was a Centaur, he was kind and being hospitable gave food and shelter to Heracles.
As Centaurs eat their meat raw Pholus cooked the share set aside for Heracles which the hero appreciated, but on asking Pholus for wine with his meal, Pholus replied that he kept only one jar, which happened to be a gift from Dionysus, and common property of all Centaurs who lived on the mountain.
Heracles persuaded Pholus to open the jar, which he did reluctantly, as soon as the seal was broken the heavy aroma of strong wine drifted down through the forest.

On first reading, I thought Reinhart had gone beyond her senses (which she clearly has, in one way), but on re-reading the book and doing my own tentative research into the impact of these two Centaurs, I have to applaud her bravery and perspicacity in presenting this new material.
Clearly, it will take a considerable period of time to develop and integrate Pholus and Nessus (after all, most of us have only recently integrated Chiron) But, once again, like a true Centaur, Reinhart is blazing a trail for the rest of us to follow.

 Pholus
Unlike Chiron, however, which is pretty much gray all over, Pholus is very red — in fact, the reddest known object in the Solar System; also unlike Chiron, it doesn't appear to develop a comet-like coma when near perihelion.
Its infrared spectrum has a feature in the 2-micron region that had never been seen before and is possibly related to whatever makes Pholus so red.
The most likely explanation is that Pholus is covered with organic molecules that started off as simple ices but were converted into more complex, stable molecules by millions of years of bombardment by cosmic rays.
