The Lamia Matriarch, also known as the Q.Lamia or the MthrLamia, is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV. It can be found on the upper floors of the Tower of Babil after the battle against Rubicante.

She is slightly tougher than the regular Lamia, but not by much. She is easily dispatched by normal attacks. The player should heal or smack anyone that becomes Confused. They may come in pairs or with other enemies, in which case it is recommended to take out the other enemies beforehand.

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.
