Operator Overview

"I'm Manticore... My power is to kill people silently... Don't be afraid, you're not... my target..."

Shy, gentle and... deadly? An embodiment of the Specialist designation, Manticore is a stealth-type, DPS Operator that deals death from the shadows.

Manticore specializes in stealth and survival. Her unique Trait allows her to attack all enemies within her range while making her less likely to be targeted and granting her a 50% chance to evade attacks. Furthermore, since Manticore does not block, melee enemies will never directly attack her. The only threat to Manticore is ranged damage, but this is somewhat mitigated by her Trait and Talent, Hidden Killer. Hidden Killer puts Manticore into an invisible state when not engaged with enemies, and provides a one-time Attack bonus when first attacking out of invisibility.

Manticore’s Skills aim to make the most out of her Trait and Talent. Her first Skill, Scorpion Venom, slows all enemy units she hits, while her second Skill, Toxic Overload, decreases her Attack Speed but increases her Attack and stuns enemies. Combined with her Talent upgrade at E2, her second Skill enables every attack to gain the Talent bonus.  These two Skills allow Manticore to be extremely effective at disrupting and destroying large groups of enemies if placed correctly, often being able to drastically change the flow of a mission.

However, Manticore's specialized capabilities come with weaknesses. As a melee unit with a relatively high DP cost and slow Attack Speed, effective map knowledge and prior planning is necessary to maximize her strengths. Furthermore, although Manticore has effective survival tools, her re-stealth time still leaves her vulnerable to enemy counter-attacks, and her Cost and lack of block make her more difficult to place early to avoid aggro.  Drawbacks aside, when utilized effectively, Manticore can wreak havoc at the heart of the enemy formations. Manticore's story is a tale of practice, as familiarity will be required to maximize her potential, but her enemies have every reason to fear her lethal presence.

Elite Promotion Discussion

  • Her Talent, Hidden Killer, is Manti-core to her mechanics and usability.  Her Skill 2, Toxic Overload, increases her Attack Interval to 5.2 seconds.  At E2, the time it takes for her to return to stealth mode lowers from 6 to 5 seconds.  This means that every attack during Skill 2 gets the damage bonus from her Talent, which is also doubled at E2!  Thus, the improvements at E2 (in attack bonus and reduced re-stealth time) can make a big difference if she is part of your squad.

Profile

Much of Manticore's history is unknown. It is known that prior to her employment at Rhodes Island, she had engaged in the "removal" of certain individuals. She has excellent stealth, infiltration, and surprise attack skills.
Now she serves as a special kind of Operator who provides these unique services for Rhodes Island.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.
Imaging tests have shown the outlines of her internal organs to be indistinct due to abnormal shadows. Originium granules have been detected in her circulatory system, confirming her to be infected with Oripathy.

[Cell-Originium Fusion Rate] 12%
Operator has no obvious ore lesions on the surface of her body. Tests have revealed the presence of crystals internally, however.

[Blood Crystal Density] 0.32u/L
Due to the presence of Originium within the Operator's internal organs, the Operator's shows an elevated blood crystal content.

Manticore is gentle, shy, and sometimes even gives others the feeling that she's afraid. She speaks in a hesitant tone and often stammers. She rarely finishes a sentence in one attempt, and she appears very stiff when communicating with other Operators. She would probably be more comfortable talking to a rock.
Additionally, her rare invisibility ability has become a major hindrance to communication. It has completely prevented her from improving her interpersonal skills. It may be necessary to suggest additional treatment solutions to help Manticore develop her social skills.

Increase Trust to 100.
We communicate with Manticore by writing messages on paper. Oripathy has given her the ability to turn invisible (the report on this ability needs additional processing). It has been confirmed through interactive experiments that her ability does not transfer to inanimate objects, so paper communication has proved a suitable way to communicate with this operator.
After communication, Manticore likes to leave behind little gifts that smell sweetly of violets.

Manticore was born in Sargon. Because most of the background she provided could not be validated, Manticore's experience cannot be confirmed. What is known is that Manticore has undergone relatively comprehensive special operations training and has at least one year of operative experience under her belt.
The investigation into her special operations training unit was unsuccessful, and Sargon intelligence did not provide any valuable clues. Currently only unconfirmed and less than reliable intelligence from Sargon spies indicate there is a group of people who house Originium Arts users with special abilities in this area. These individuals are using special training methods to kill Sargon aristocrats or operatives from other nations.
Because of Manticore's vague background, she has been designated a special type of Oripathy patient at Rhodes Island. Any applications requesting use of Manticore in special operations or combat will first need to be submitted to Dr. Kal'tsit for approval.

[Manticore's Ability's Test Record]
Test subject: Manticore.
Test objective: To probe the usefulness of the subject's abilities and Originium Arts.
Test content: To find Manticore while she is in hiding and to defend against her while she is in action.
Test participants: An Operator who has worked with Manticore on several missions.
Randomly select two Operators from all of the Operators available.
Among them must be at least one technician Operator or non-technician Operator with high Originium adaptability.
Test results: The test took place on a terrain simulating a complex environment. During the test period, none of the three Operators were able to locate the whereabouts of Manticore. When Manticore went on the offensive, some of the Operators managed to defend against her attacks using their quick reaction times and combat experience, while Manticore managed to successfully attack the others.
Feedback results: According to the explanations provided by the Operators, Manticore could not be captured using visual means. Some of the Operators with better Originium adaptability reported feeling a strange atmosphere that instantly made them as though they were in danger.
The above process has been recorded in its entirety. If you wish to view it, you must request it from the relevant department.
