Mantis was born in a small poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Edinburgh, to a single Orc mother, Janic McMullion. At a young age Mantis started training martial arts in order to survive in his rough neighborhood. The master that though Mantis was an expert in Southern Praying Mantis, this is the style that Mantis studied. Not being able to go to school without a SIN Mantis got his schooling from his Mother Janic. At 8 yrs old Mantis had his magical skills awakened well working on a technique to extend his chi abilities in his Southern Praying Mantis style he threw a stun bolt that dropped another student in his small martial arts club. Not having anyone to train him in his magical abilities he started to go into local libraries where he could study, Mantis gained a deep love for magic and the power it gave him. This self-studies continued for 6 yrs when he was 14 Mantis got his hands on a part time job and was able to buy himself a comm link with his comm link his library visits to learn about magic turned into on line searches for mystical knowledge. At the age of 16 Mantis got into handing out with known Scottish Syndicate members. The hanging around got into doing odd jobs for the Syndicate, as the money started to flow in Mantis began to save his illegally hard earned money. After saving and working for the Syndicate for 5 years (age 21) Mantis was able to go on a spending spree where he got his body pimped out with bio-ware in order to augment his brain and mystical abilities. Now being a full fledge adult Mantis decided to move South to London, still doing odd jobs for the Scot Syndicate to pay rent Mantis met a girl 2 years (Age 23) after moving to London named Jennifer. The two began dating and when Mantis turned 24 he asked her to marry him. The two were living as nice of a life that a connected man and women without SIN's could live, not a high end living but a nice life none the less, but then when Mantis was 27 tragedy struck, one day Jennifer disappeared, leaving Mantis alone. After talking to the Syndicate's London Fixer that had been supplying Mantis with jobs, the Syndicate did their best to find out what had happened to Jennifer but no leads showed up. After two years now Mantis has decided to no longer to do odd jobs but to go full throttle into Shadowrunning. With his fixer looking for work for Mantis, hope for more mystical power and news on Jennifer lingers in Mantis's enhanced mind.
