Its orbit has been verified, and has not been given the official number 121725. It has an orbit of 76.1 years, an eccentricity of 0.4619342, and an inclination to the ecliptic of 6.77805.
It is definitely a Centaur, and I think it is a significant one. Afterall, its discovery chart contains a close applying conjunction between Chiron and Pluto.

Another place to derive possible meanings for a new body is from its discovery degree, especially if you delve into the Sabian Symbols. #121725 (1999 XX143) was found in the 27th degree of Cancer. Lynda Hill gives this as the symbol:
