NAME ORIGIN
    Death Manticore is simply a combination of death and manticore. Death is the end of life, the total and permanent cessation of all the vital functions of an organism. The word comes from the Middle English word deeth. A manticore is a legendary creature of Persian origin. It is usually portrayed with the head of a man, horns, the body of a lion, wings and the tail of a dragon or scorpion. The word itself comes from the Greek word mantikhoras, a mispronunciation of the Old Iranian martiya-khvara meaning "man-eater". As far as I know, there is no mythological or literary meaning behind the name. If you have any information, please feel free to contact the Webmaster.
