The lobster-mantis is an animal originally born from animal merging magic and raised in foxen farms in Tyali for their meat and tough exoskeletons. They are, as their name implies, a mixture of lobsters and mantis.
They mainly resemble lobsters, with hard shells and fanned tails. However, their legs are elongated like a mantis, and they have scythe-like arms instead of pincers.
The lobster-mantis was originally supposed to be culled when animal merging was outlawed, but due to a communication error they were instead released into the wild. Now they are commonly found in the waters between Carra’Jor and Aurn’la Ann, and considered a pest species due to their damaging effect on the natural ecosystem.
