He led the charge of the centaurs from the Forbidden Forest during the Battle of Hogwarts, breaking through the Death Eater ranks into the Hall. It is likely that he witnessed the final battle between Lord Voldemort and Harry Potter.In 1996, when Harry Potter and Hermione Granger led Professor Umbridge into the Forbidden Forest, he was among the centaurs who were greatly insulted by Umbridge's remarks about their race being "filthy half-breeds". During this event, known as the Skirmish in the Forbidden Forest, Umbridge ended up casting the Incarcerous spell on Magorian, which caused thick ropes to bind and strangle the centaur, who luckily was able to free himself. The centaurs then carried Umbridge away, and Magorian was one of the centaurs in favour of a similar fate for Harry and Hermione.
Views on Humankind
He was more of a traditional centaur and hated "traitors" such as Firenze for going to teach at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He intensely disliked humans, and though centaurs don't usually kill the young and the innocent, he was shown to be in favour of killing any human if they wandered into the centaurs' midst or insulted them.
