Etymology[edit | edit source]

A marilith is fictional creature in many official Dungeons & Dragons campaign settings. A marilith is depicted as a powerful, six-armed female demon with the lower body of a snake. Mariliths in Dungeons & Dragons are based on Hindu mythology, where gods and demons frequently have multiple heads and arms.

Marid (Arabic: مارد‎‎ mārid) is an Arabic word meaning rebellious, which is sometimes applied to supernatural beings. The word has come to refer to demons and powerful jinn. In Dungeons & Dragons a marid is a genie of water.

In the older translation, Lesser Marilith was called Screamer. Screamer is a person who screams or wails, creatures or entities who screams are found in mythologies or folklores across the world. The most famous one is the Banshee.

In the Easy Type version, the Lesser Marilith's name was changed to Lady Cherry.
