Bakugan Ultimate Handbook

Manion resembles a sphinx from ancient Egypt, a terrifying and mysterious creature with the body of a lion, the face of a human, and wings of an eagle. Golden armor protects Manion from attacks. In battle, Manion will fly above the field and then dive down to target its foe. Then it will slash at its opponent with its sharp claws.
