    Lurker in the shadows!

    Availability: Widespread Availability
    Year Released: 2007

    Description: Mantax lurks for his enemies in the darkness and then attacks them from behind. He is equipped with a thick armor, poisonous red stingers and mighty pincers.
    Mantax is the closest thing to an “outsider” among the Barraki. The others really don’t know him or understand him, even after all this time, but they tolerate him because of his bravery and his skill in combat. Whether this will cost them down the line remains to be seen.
