Manticore was the flagship of Darth Sinity during his reign over the Great Empire of the Sith. It participated in many battles. It was the first, and only at the time, Olympus-class Star Destroyer ever built. Manticore was destroyed during the First Battle of Pantolomin. During the battle, a Jedi Knight managed to infiltrate the ship, and make his way up to the bridge where Sinity was commanding the ship. The Jedi attempted to subdue Sinity, but seconds before Sinity delivered him the final blow, the Jedi set off a thermal detonator, destroying the bridge. Sinity managed to survive by the hands of Darth Keizer, but was thrown into a coma that lasted 10 years.
