It has the head of a human, body of a lion and a tail of poisonous spines similar to porcupine quills, while other depictions have it with the tail of a scorpion, it is a creature of great strength and pride, a creature that was known to wreak havoc and destroy, however there was always only one in an area, as they are territorial, savage and some who could not even speak. The Manticores of Yesteryear that is, Manticores have continued to grow and evolve just as all races have through out the millennia and are capable of intelligent thought and more than just out and out instinctual actions.Manticores live in a spartan environment and rather enjoy it, although as of modern times this has changed and some have begun to integrate into society unbeknownst to other races, working, paying rent, finding places to stay and trying to make a life for themselves within the modern world. As all Manticores, their eating habits allow them to survive anywhere on anything as they can digest anything and use it to fuel themselves and keep themselves alive. Whilst they can live on something as simple as sand, they far prefer meat and bone.Manuchar's Elemental Attributes: Wind and Earth. Capable of using both through old means of magic, but only to a limited degree, this is mostly used for enchanting weapons and armor, making metal harder, a bow shoot further, allowing someone to move faster than they might normally be able to, for a short period of time.Powers : Shape - Physiology abilities of a Manticore: The majority of things determined for this were done on a 3x multiplier based on the following information http://lionalert.org/page/physiology These are part of the shape power. 12 Feet tall by 36 Feet long, Wingspan of 25 feet with a weight of 1800 Lbs.

Much like it's leaping abilities, the Manticore's jaw power is three times that of a lion, weighing in at a whopping two thousand and seventy pounds of pressure, with teeth that are 8.2 Inches long.Enhanced climbing: The use of The lion like claws allow for climbing up things, such things as wood, trees, anything that has a grip for climbingEnhanced Flexibility: Ability to bend and move in ways that most things can't, due to Bone and muscular structure https://www.catsinn.com/why-are-cats-so-flexible/Enhanced Leaping: Powerful legs allow for tall leaps and long leaps if given a running start, A lion can make a thirty six foot leap from a running pace, A manticore can triple that at a hundred and eight feet. A vertical jump comes in at thirty six feet, three times that of a regular lion.Exo-skeletal armor: Upon the top half of the Manticore lies an exo-skeletal carapace much like what a scorpion has, except that there are various spikes sticking out of it, these are hard to damage but not impossible.Enhanced Senses: The hearing of a Manticore is greatly above a human but below that of a dog, however ears can swivel to assess direction of a sound, The sense of vision is twenty four times that of a human and their sense of scent is a hundred and twenty times that of a human.Enhanced Speed: Capable of running at a hundred and twenty miles an hour but only for about two thousand feet.Enhanced Strength: Capable of lifting over head twenty five thousand six hundred feet and pushing/pulling and dragging sixty four thousand pounds.

This was quantified with a x2 modifier of the largest bird in the world, an Andean condor, which can move 15 Meters per second with a ten foot wingspan.Venom Generation: The scorpion tail produces Venom that is applicable to not only the thirteen spines capable of being shot out per day, but to being stung with the stinger on the end.Prehensile Scorpion Tail: A scorpion'esque tail that is able to wrap around things and people.Stinger Protrusion: In true form, the creature possesses natural venomous stingers that can be fired out from the tail as if they were bullets, envenoming and weakening it's foe from afar. The tail is eighteen feet curled up but can stretch out to the full length of it's body and can fire thirteen(Rolled in Roll 20 with a number provided by Saka) Per day. These grow back during the night with sleep.Humanoid form: Manticores are tall, the smallest having ranged at six foot, the largest at nine, they tend to be densely muscled and their physical abilities are around 1.5 of their true form abilities, meaning that they are capable of lifting up to 16,000 pounds, punching with enough force to knock a human back thirty feet, leap twenty four feet Vertically and horizontally at seventy two. Their senses stay at the same acuity as they are within their natural forms.Human claws: The claws from his natural form are capable of coming forward through the tips of his fingers and being used to attack, climb and for other general purposes that may suit the need, this also allows claws to spring from the toes as well, if barefoot, or if not barefoot, depending upon want.Poison/Venom Immunity: Immune to poisons and Venoms due to a mixture of magical blood, matter ingestion and the fact that the Manticore itself produces magical venom that is capable of paralysis, there are rumors however that small doses done in the proper manner that one can become manticore like, hardier with the ability to resist damage and gain more strength, faster healing. But no one but the Manticores know if this is true.
Matter Ingestion: The user can eat nearly any substance without harmful effects, regardless of what they consume. If they can bite through it, they can eat it.
Ingestion Healing: When eating, he is able to heal nearly any damage done within days to weeks depending on damage done, months if the wound had been critical and life threatening.Weakness's :Extreme heat due to being unable to sweat as most creatures do, they do not have wet noses so they are also unable to cool themselves that way. Much like a lion a Manticore is known to pant when hot and avoid hot temperatures.(Humanoid form does not have this issue, as it allows sweating as a human).Over-active sense of pride and Territory, this may not be a way to kill them but it is a way to lead them into a trap or to use mental games against them to attack them and put them in a position to do so. A piercing blow to the eyes into the brain is sufficient to kill a Manticore, as is a sufficient blow to the soft underbelly and chest, along with spots on the side of the Manticore. The rest of it's body is protected by spikes that appear to come from a Scorpion like exo-skeleton. Sufficient damage however will break through and cause regular damage as well, bludgeoning damage can crack the exo-skeleton.
