The Manticore is one of the wizarding world's most dangerous creatures. It is a sentient beast, capable of intelligent speech, but has not been classified as a being due to its violent tendencies. A Manticore has a human-like head, a lion's body, and a scorpion's tail with a stinger. Sometimes the Manticore is reported of having a tail like a lion's, except it has a spiked ball on the end. These spikes are supposedly able to be shot out of the tail, and new ones grow in their place immediateley. A Manticore's skin repels all known charms, so is effectively hard to subdue a Manticore with magic.
