Tempermental and solitary, Bantor relishes his fuzor anamalien fusion. Enhanced by the attributes of a baboon's and tiger's instincts, he is a natural warrior in total flux with the ways of combat. Extremely versitile, bantor combines the cunning patience of a tiger with the near- demented frenzy of a baboon, deleting the need for ammunition in close-range combat.
