Mantites are one of the three native intelligent species of Acheron. They are a highly sexually dimorphic species of insectoids. The females are over 2 meters tall. Two of their four arms are wicked chitin blades. They are born warriors and hunters and generally live alone. Abilities as Half-Orc. Arm blades are d8 weapons. Their exoskeletons count as light armor.
Males are around 1 meter tall and are herbivorous. Their four arms are dexterous but have no claws. Female Mantites tend to attempt to eat them after mating, so males have evolved some mental powers that help them escape from females and other predators. Males tend to live in small groups. Abilities as Gnome.
