Lamia are deadly demons from greek mythology. Bloodthirsty and ruthless, lamia devour children and suck the souls of men. Masters of deceit, lamia are gifted with the power of illusion and use this to capture their prey. Under the illusion of a beautiful woman, lamia have lured countless mortals to their demise.
Lamia used to roam the forests of Greece and Rome. They would often travel to the sea to look for shipwrecked sailors. In modern times, lamia have begun to travel to other countries and cities though they still continue their bloodthirsty ways.
It is said that the first lamia was a beautiful Greek queen and a powerful witch. With her honey blonde curls and midnight black eyes, Lamia was more beautiful than the goddess Hera. Zeus, king of the gods fell in love with lamia and married her. Lamia gave birth to many strong, handsome sons. The years passed and the young boys grew up and became strong warriors. Hera was outraged and filled with jealousy. One day, Lamia was outside in the garden with all her sons. Hera emerged from the forest and killed Lamia's children. Lamia went mad with grief. She cast a dark spell that turned her heart to stone. The spell stopped her pain but accidentally filled Lamia with rage. Her fury transformed her into a hideous snake-like beast. Unknown to Hera, Lamia was pregnant. In her knew form, Lamia gave birth to six daughters, each one a hideous snake maiden just like their mother. Zeus took pity on Lamia and his daughters. He gifted them with the power to cast illusions and shapeshift, allowing Lamia to regain her beautiful form. Lamia however, was no longer human. She and her daughters, in revenge, prayed on mortal men, seducing them then sucking their souls. Hera could not undo the chaos she had created. The lamia were bloodthirsty and enjoyed dinning upon human flesh. However, a brave and powerful witch managed to cast a powerful spell. Using Medusa's bones, she turned three lamia into stone. Unfortunatly, she was scratched by a lamia. The next night, the witch's heart turned to stone and she became a lamia.

Lamia have reptilian eyes that glow with a fiery yellow light. Their claws are sharp and bear-like. Their mouths are lipless and filled with large, sharp teeth and venemous fangs.
