Warhammer Online ManticoreEdit This Entry
|Lore||Manticores, at first glance, would appear to be gross parodies of Griffons. The Manticore looks to be an unholy union of a wyvern with a lion. Leathery wyvern's wings and a barbed tail, dripping with poison, extend from the leonine body of a Manticore.|
To top off the horrific image, the Manticore's halo of lion's mane surrounds a frighteningly humanoid face, seemingly capable of displaying emotion, though no one has ever described a Manticore's visage as displaying anything other than abject hatred.
Regardless of their origin, Manticores are relentless hunters that savor the pain and suffering of their prey. Manticores prefer their meals alive, and will go out of their way to terrify that which they stalk with their horrible cries before swooping down and slowly killing them.
"Am I understood?"
