Yes. IMO it was used to reverse

Only the Pain Centaurs would have had this affinity. Normal
centaurs would be free from it. OTOH there were no Pain Ducks
as the entire species was attainted with the stigma of the Cutter.
This has warped their very souls so that they have become
cowardly thieving quackers.

Satyrs and Minotaurs AFAIK are naturally occuring. One could
make a case for Manticores being attainted by the Cutter to
such an extent they are mindless beasts intent on destruction.
