The Mantis is an enormous version of that merciless killer of the insect world, the Praying Mantis. An extremely strong layer of chitin provides it with almost total protection from arrows and light sword blows. It has a large shielding plate to protect its head. In addition to its four legs, which can propel this monster to amazing speeds, it also has two pincer arms which it uses to attack and disable enemies... and let's not forget its razor sharp teeth! The Mantis mainly lives in dry areas, often building its nest on sandy ground near abandoned ruins.
