Dr Gorgon and Manticore.EXE

Name: Dr Maximilion Gorgon
Age: 29
Gender: Male

Appearance: Dr Gorgon typically dons a long black labcoat over an untucked irish green polo shirt and wrinkled beige slacks, all atop a pair of thick-soled black work boots. Greasy blonde hair hangs wild and unkempt from his head, barely held aloft by a pair of black rubber goggles with emerald lenses, raised to his forehead. The deep pockets of his coat tend to rattle or clang with any number of oddities contained therein. He is a rather imposing figure, at 6'3" tall and 220lbs, but it is his eyes that unnerve the most. They are beady with deep green irises that throw wild looks of ambition, genius and at times madness.

Background: Maximilion used to work for SciLab, untill his research grew well beyond his duties and the tolerence for the law. He was given the boot after it was discovered that he was using SciLab equipment in his experiments to forcivly mutate navis using bugfrags and what was rumored to be trace data from a legendary cybeast. He hoped that by increasing a PET's memory capacity and adding a few 'improvements' of his own design that the data would mix as if in a beaker and form a new being. He only ever got to modify his own navi however, and sent him into the net to claim later when it became clear he was going to be found and destroyed by law enforcement. Lacking hard evidence, the net police had to let him go but SciLab fired him just the same. In his lab at home he was eventually able to trace his navi's data and reclaim him, but the savage beast it had all settled into had to be called something new. He named it Manticore.

Personality: Dr Gorgon is quite mad. Both being filled with bitterness and hate for the SciLab that ruined him and the net police that, he assumes, want to confiscate Manticore and lock him away. He was always a clever boy but never knew when to stop or what 'too far' meant. He always figured if something could theoretically exist that may better society as a whole then why shouldn't it? Sure, some people may be hurt, some navis may be horribly altered or deleted but you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs right? From time to time he calms down enough to realise that he needs to find work to keep his experiments going and if he is caught funding Manticore directly he can be taken down as well. No, from now on he would be too carefull for that, he would invent a persona to controll the monster he had made and let it fund it'self. After all, that would make for much better research.

PET Modifications: Dr Gorgons' PET is a highly customized mess of extra data modules, power capacitors, duct tape and who knows what else. Somewhere under all that whatever is left of the origional casing is irish green.

Name: Manticore.EXE
Gender: Male
Element: Normal
Subtype: Wind

Appearance: By all accounts, Manticore is a feral and savage monster who some would argue shouldn't even exist. His body resembles that of a muscular black lion with a pair of massive dragon wings and a long multi-segmented scorpion tail ending in wicked stinger. Several areas of his body are highlighted with blood-red streaks, including all through his mane and the underside membrane of his wings. The beasts back and the top of his wings have thicker, armored hide and have at numerous places deadly quills, some a mere couple inches while others extend to almost a foot in length. His paws and the bones running through his wings end in razor-sharp claws and his maw is lined with rows of razor sharp teeth. Even when at rest his expression and appearance in general tend to inspire terror in all but the most hearty or foolish.

Feral.GMO: Sometimes Manticore's data becomes especially unstable (or when the good doctor or a foe angers him enough) and his body briefly undergoes a change. His appearance becomes much more savage, quills growing from almost all parts of his body, his thick hide covering even his underbelly and his head shifting to look more like a fanged dragon than lion. His eyes are replaced by a trio of brightly glowing red eyes on either side of his head and he becomes taken over with utter blind rage, attempting to slaughter anything in sight. Friend, foe or random objects beware.

Personality: Little is known about the inner workings of Manticore's mind. Since he was at one time a normal net navi, and the property of Dr Gorgon, he seems to recognise his authority even now. Unfortunately due to the 'good doctor' mutating his code with a cocktail of bugfrags and what was supposedly bits of cybeast data, he has all but lost his mind. He is constantly flooded with rage and hunger and the only thing that seems to sooth his fury is battle. In rare moments of calm he finds himself remembering brief and confusing moments from his past life or the nightmare that was his transformation when he was thrown into the net to be reclaimed later.

Custom Weapon: Like the mythical beast he appears to be, Manticore tends to either tear things appart with his claws and teeth or stab them with his stinger. When he moves in certain ways and wills it, he can set loose volleys of quills from his shoulders or a snap of his tail and engage foes in ranged combat.

Signature Attacks
Quills (40): 10 Null, Shot Attack; Passive
In battle Manticore constantly moves his muscular body, wings and tail in a manor that the longest and deadliest spikes are being thrown every turn at his foes with minimal input from him. The quills target random foes but if he ever finds himself fighting alongside allies, they would be wise to make themselves smaller, less inviting targets...
Hungering Strike (20): 10 Null+Lifesteal, Melee Attack; 1TCD
The hunger that fills Manticore can briefly be put at bay with a bite that tears appart and consumes the data of a digital denzen! Navi or virus, it all tastes like net chicken and repairs him just the same.

Would like the HP+50...

((Requesting to Shelve Ken/Musou, for now, in favor of Gorgon/Manticore))
Approval revoked; Lance needs a level 5 navi first. Feel free to bump this once your navi is level 5 or if you'd like to use it as a shelving instead.
Approval reinstated, no longer registered as 2nd pair, but as shelf Navi.
