Lamia's Scythe may refer to:

EtymologyEdit

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.

A scythe is an agricultural hand tool for mowing grass or reaping crops largely replaced by horse-drawn and then tractor machinery, but is still used in some areas of Europe and Asia. A war scythe is a regular scythe adapted for combat use by straightening their tangs to re-attach the blade parallel to the snaith, rather than perpendicular to it, so that it looks like a bill. The Grim Reaper and the Greek Titan Cronus are often depicted carrying or wielding a scythe.
