Lamia’s Touch (Su)

When a lamia touches a creature, it saps the will of the creature, dealing 1d4 points of Wisdom damage. Lamias try to use this power early in an encounter to make foes more susceptible to their enchantment powers.


Environment deserts
Organization solitary, pair, or cult (3-12)

Lamias are dangerous, vampire-like monsters that live to bring strife and suffering into the world. They are cruel and seductive beings that lure their victims closer to doom with illusions of beauty.

A lamia stands over 6 feet tall, measures 8 feet long, and weighs about 650 pounds (65 bulk). Most lamias appear to be beautiful women from the waist up, with the bodies of powerful lions from the waist down – similar to a centaur. These are the weakest forms of lamia however, as the more powerful versions can have the lower bodies of serpents (often confusing these creatures for naga or gorgons), birds, spiders, or any other form of animal or vermin. The most powerful of lamias can change their lower bodies as easily as a mortal being changes their clothes.

Being an all-female race, lamias are a matriarchal breed. They follow the most powerful member of their community. Lamias make their lairs within ancient ruins and abandoned cities. In these lairs, they use their illusory powers to transform the environment to appear new as if rebuilt to their former glory.
