The Draken are a race of noble savages, reveling in the art of warfare and the thrill of the hunt, known as some of the most brutal and effective combatants in the Dominion military. Mantigora has taken the predatory nature a step farther, chasing high priority targets and other potential threats to the Dominion's goals. Typically the ones your standard rank and file can't handle. Long story short, Nexus is full of some really weird stuff out there. Mantigora is a highly capable close-quarters combatant utilizing a combination of physical aggressiveness, tactical cunning, and the cutting edge of military grade technology. With deadly clawblades and the advanced stealth capabilities of her nano-suit she can swiftly track and strike her targets. Regardless of how she may justify it as part of the job Mantigora has an undeniably aggressive blood-lust, often focusing on her intended quarry to the point of not paying attention of the broader scope of matters. Her combat technique is very melee oriented, and while she does have long distance attacks they are designed more to harass and debilitate foes than inflict extensive harm, leaving her at a disadvantage against foes that can swiftly evade her proximity in a fight.
Aggressiveness: An aggressive nature is normal for Draken, it's part of what makes them such fearsome combatants. But it is also a social difficulty with other races. Mantigora tends to be blunt, confrontational if she feels she is being brushed aside, and in general not beyond resolving matters with verbal or physical retaliation even when she -is- being reasonable. Because beating someone down before they do something even stupider to get themselves killed, or worse, is an entirely reasonable solution in Draken society.
Bloodlust: It doesn't matter if she justifies it as part of her job, part of conquering a planet, or part of being a hunter; there is no denying that Mantigora really enjoys when she gets to kill someone or something. The bigger and more challenging the prey the better, but just striking down a pest in the course of a mission is enough to let her more bloodthirsty nature show. If the need arrises she will happily utilize torture and strong-arm intimidation tactics to get information out of her victims. Even with her cunning and tactical skills in mind, seeing a foe bleeding and weakened is intoxicating, narrowing her focus more and more on that potential kill to be had, until her fixation is on her quarry and little else. This tendency to go into obsessive tunnel vision is the easiest time to catch her off-guard, potentially nullifying the very kill she was intent on.
Necrophobia: Though not an outright fear of the undead, dealing with such things makes Mantigora extremely uncomfortable and edgy. Death is one of the few things that Draken culture holds in as high of honor as their own personal codes, respecting both their fallen ancestors and the greatest prey they've hunted. To reanimate the dead with dark magic or science is one of the worst dishonors you can enact, and one of the few things strictly forbidden by their society. For Mantigora this is even more personal, as her former colleague has fallen to such power corruption, and has tried to kill her so she can reanimate her as another undead warrior. Needless to say, Mantigora can barely tolerate the undead, even working near those controlled by allies makes her uneasy. She will lash out at unliving enemies without hesitation.
Stealth Limitations: The Nano-Skin Suit's stealth power is strong, but not infallible. Most notibly is that the cloaking field only shields Manticora from the visible spectrum, and attempts to cancel out basic technological detections with the combination of electronic disruption and holographic optical camoflague. It does not prevent her from being attacked or struck by indirect attacks, which will cancel out the field if she is hit. Advanced means specifically designed towards detecting stealth and cloaking have a higher chance of detecting her, particularly thermal imaging that can pick up her heat signature (though her body heat is lower than average due to being reptilian). At close proximity sharp senses may hear her buffered movements, or notice the faint 'ripple' in the air from the cloaking field.
Nanotech Limitations: The nanotechnology incorperated into Mantigora's body is expended to produce the nano-suit's projectile attacks, manage its defense and support functions, or energize certain techniques with her clawblades. While it will never be completely depleted and does regenerate over time, it is not instantaneous in doing so and draining the current available supply will leave Mantigora at a considerable disadvantage. She will not be able to use her stealth abilities, nanotech spawned projectiles or amplified strikes.
Sensative Balance: Draken rely greatly on their serpentine tails to maintain their sense of balance and upright stance. Especially for Mantigora, as the combat style she utilizes with her clawblades requires extensive mobility and swiftness, using the motion of her tail to offset the weight of the weapons when she's striking or deflecting attacks. Crippling or otherwise restricting the movement of her tail will severely hinder her ability to move quickly and engage in more elaborate physical techniques.Bound By Blood Honor: When Azrion the Conquerer, legendary Emperor of old, came to Mikros and defeated the highest clanlord Zhur in ceremonial combat, the Draken as a race swore their eternal loyalty to his family. To this day they continue to serve his heirs in the Emperor lineage, and through it are bound to serve the Dominion without hesitation or remorse. In exchange they were given the Deradune region of Nexus to do with as they wish. Even those such as Mantigora who do not directly serve in the military will always respond to the call of the empire because of this historical blood honor. Combined with how her job as a bounty huntress can take her far away for extended periods of time, sometimes she just is not there to fight, or will be forced to drop everything else to respond to a call for assistance her people simply cannot ignore.
