A praying mantis

Mantises were insects which had two grasping, spiked forelegs in which prey were caught and held securely. They were also known as "praying mantises", because of the typical "prayer-like" stance.

Mantis Clan Edit

They were the symbol of the Mantis Clan. The creature was known for its ferocity and its refusal to back down from a fight. In this the mantis epitomized the strength of mortals, and Kaimetsu-Uo declared this strength would henceforth be the symbol of the Mantis Clan. [1]
