"I'm a monster, but I hear a lot of people don't mind..."
Lamantha was assaulted by a rogue nanomachine monster from the Tongue. Rather than becoming assimilated as another victim, Lamantha managed to preserve herself and take over. Unfortunately, she retains the monster's hunger for metal so she hunts unsuspecting citizens. She makes sure to decapitate her prey before making off with their bodies since she doesn't want to kill anyone.

Twin Terrors: Lamantha launches two blades at an enemy, returning after hitting their mark or a few seconds after.
Steel Shredder: Lamantha moves while slashes quickly in a direction in a wide angle, attacking with her arms and then her legs. Each attack has a chance of causing bleed and reducing defense.

Lamantha is constantly away from home to protect her brother from having to see her ugly side. She lurks around alleys and other abandoned places at night to hunt random passerby to feed her unnatural hunger, leaving their head intact so that they live. Victims usually have no recollection of what happen. Those that do only remember a bright light before being struck down.
She sometimes runs into her childhood friend Comhas, who either doesn't recognize Lamantha post transitioning or avoidant of her physical affection. She works at a manufacturing plant which provides her with spare parts to eat.
