Lamia is a creature type introduced in Journey into Nyx.

Storyline[edit | edit source]

Theros[edit | edit source]

Lamias are female monsters with scaly, bestial bodies and humanoid faces. Lamias are attracted by the madness of their prey (Thoughtrender Lamia).

All known lamias are Nyxborn, though a mysterious subspecies of serpentine lamia are also known to exist (Gravebreaker Lamia).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

According to mythology, Lamia was a mortal queen cursed by the goddess Hera and transformed into a monster who hunted and devoured children. In later traditions and storytelling, the lamiai became a type of phantom, which seduced youths to satisfy their sexual appetite and fed on their flesh afterward.
