Manticores are a breed of vicious, reptile-like demons with venomous claws. They communicate in high-pitched cries and tend to travel in packs. Manticores are known to breed with mortal men so their hybrid offspring can blend in the mortal world. After conception, they kill their mates to raise the child demonically.
Manticores have a strong pack mentality and are fiercely loyal. When reaching maturity, Manticores undergo several trials to prove their worth.
While chasing a pack of Manticores, the Charmed Ones discovered a hybrid baby in an alley. A monster later attempted to take the child and kidnapped Piper. She discovered the monster was actually a mortal named Derek, the father of the child. She and her sisters helped reclaim his son and vanquished the pack and Derek left to raise his son as a mortal.
Years later, another pack of Manticores, under leadership of the hybrid Lena, sought to add Dylan Peterson to their pack, though he did not want to. To fight them, Dylan asked Wyatt Halliwell for help and together, they were able to vanquish the entire pack except for Lena, who left after realizing Dylan was neither willing nor worthy.
