Commentary

Notes

In 1296, a manticore seriously wounded someone but was let off because no one dared go near it (PA11).

A sentient creature, capable of intelligent speech but not classified as a being due to its violent tendencies, a manticore has a human-like head, a lion's body, and the tail of a scorpion. The tail secretes a venom that is instantly fatal to a victim of its sting. A manticore's skin repels virtually all known charms, so it is extremely difficult to subdue by magic (FB).

An XXXXX creature from Greece (FB).
