A manticore was a large, magical beast with the body of a lion, dragon-like wings, and a somewhat humanoid head. Its long tail had a cluster of deadly spikes, which the creature could launch at its foes as weapons. It had dagger-like claws and fangs.

PersonalityEdit

Manticores were known to be savage man-eaters and allies of evil creatures. Manticores were intelligent creatures and often worked beside other evil beings to bring strife and suffering to the world.

DescriptionEdit

Manticores were true monsters. They were giant beasts with the bodies of lions, the wings of a dragon, the head of a man, and a tail that ended in a mass of deadly spikes. The mouth of a manticore was full of rows and rows of razor-sharp teeth, similar to a great white shark. It used these teeth to feed upon any creature the manticore could catch, be it animal or human.

CombatEdit

Some manticores had tail spikes that carried lethal or paralytic venom. Often, these manticores would have tails that were similar in appearance to that of a scorpion's stinger.

DietEdit

Manticores preferred to eat human flesh, but they could happily settle for the flesh of other creatures as well.[2]

UsesEdit

Manticore hide was used for furniture such as chairs.[3]
