So said Jean-Henri Fabre when describing the praying mantis, and Tisamon is no exception.

So it's Mantis month this month, and you can find David's artwork here and the Mantis story, The Prince, here.

The flagship Mantis-kinden in Empire in Black and Gold is Tisamon, of course, but he's not exactly a typical Mantis for a number of reasons. However, the fact that he's Stenwold's loyal friend throws a lot of his less creditable characteristics into shadow. So, in The Prince, I give you a very different sort of Mantis-kinden altogether, and perhaps one who better represents the breed.
