Manticores are a monster species of Innworld.
A Manticore is part lion, part scorpion, part bat. They can fly, despite being five times as large as actual lions or larger, they have muscular bodies and a stinger with lethal venom.
They are not mindless monsters, having some basic intellect.
- That appearance means they are remotely similar to mythical Manticores on Earth, although the description of it being winged makes them more similar to RPG lore than the original persian myths.
Threat Assessment Edit
A proper Manticore infestation is hard to deal with, and requires whole armies or numerous Gold Rank Adventurer teams, given how even a single Manticore may pose a threat to a Gold rank team. While thousands of Manticores usually mean large-scale death, e.g. that of entire cities, just one hundred Manticores are certainly a nuisance.
The Realm of Belchan allowed Flos Reimarch to proceed against a Manticore infestation with the army of Reim itself. Flos slaughtered over a hundred and some Manticores there, although the beasts were capable of fighting organized and strategically as a group.
