Artwork of Lamia from Final Fantasy II.

Lamia (ラミア, Ramia?) are snakelike foes that appear in many of the Final Fantasy games after their debut in Final Fantasy II. Lamia are known for inflicting nasty status ailments like Charm, Confuse, Sap, Silence, and Paralysis. The first Lamia in the series appeared in Final Fantasy II with a stronger variety, the Lamia Queen, as a boss halfway through the game. On rare occasions Lamia can also appear as a summon.

Lamia FFXI.jpg

Lamiae, the plural form and family name for Lamia, appear in the near east, a region that was added by the expansion Treasures of Aht Urhgan. Lamiae are beastmen and by far one of the least populous of all beastmen races in the near east or in Vana'diel altogether. It is rumored, though, that they are not actually beastmen, but instead a created race of chimera, a creature created by piecing other creatures together.

Lamiae are related to Merrow (Mermaids), though they have slightly different jobs and abilities. They are most common in the Arrapago Reef, a cavernous graveyard of many ships. It follows this place is infested with undead. The Lamia themselves seem to wield control over these minions.

Lamiae often sneak into cities at night and steal away people to use their bones in their undead armies. That said, they also use massed armies of undead to assault Aht Urhgan as one of the three factions that do so in besieged.

Lamiae are one of the only creature types that can use Charm outside of special events.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

In Greek mythology, Lamia was a beautiful Libyan queen who turned into a child-eating demon. She is often referred to as having the lower half of a snake and sometimes a large mouth (lamia in Greek means "large shark", while laimos means gullet).

Later characteristics attributed to her are similar to that of succubi, in that the lamia seduces men, enticing them in order to feed on their blood. It is also said they reside in towers or secluded areas and have magical abilities.
