Mantid Tenders are heroic tier monsters that live around The Triskelion, and are part of the reason that the flowers and other plants thrive so heartily. They were originally created by Syreene as a means to tend The Monarch's flower gardens. They pollinate, weed, and otherwise care for the varying plants around their habitat.

Physical DescriptionEdit

Mantid Tenders are cat-sized mantids. They are silvery in color, with the edges of their carapace lightly gilded.
