A manticore is a large, magical beast with the body of a lion, dragon-like wings, and a somewhat humanoid head. Its long tail has a cluster of deadly spikes, which the creature can launch at its foes as missile weapons. It also has razor-sharp claws and fangs.

Manticores are known to be savage man-eaters and often serve as allies of evil creatures. Manticores are quite intelligent and often worked beside evil wizards to bring strife and suffering to the world.


Like many other magical beasts, the Manticore was created long ago by the Shadurian wizards of the Iridescent Order.
