General Edit

Strategy Edit

Manticores have a ranged attack and have an attack bonus against Myth Units. They attack over range by firing many spikes with limited accuracy, and are effective support units. They shouldn't be in the thick of combat. Instead they should stay on the sidelines and just continually deal damage so stronger units can kill enemy units.

Mythology Edit

Scientific name: Epibouleos occisor.
Size: 1600 lbs.
Diet: carnivore, largely humans.

The Manticore probably came into Greek mythology from Persia and originated in tales about far away and exotic India. The beast had the body of a red lion, a human face (with blue eyes and human ears), three rows of teeth, a stinging poisonous tail, and poisonous spines that could be shot like arrows in any direction. Its voice was like a mixture of pipes and trumpets. It was fast and capable of great leaps. When villagers vanished without a trace, it was believed they were devoured by a manticore.
