The Lamia is an enemy from Final Fantasy IX, found exclusively in the Bell Room in Gizamaluke's Grotto. Its Entice ability will confuse male members of the party (also affecting Quina) unless Clear Headed is equipped. Lamia is a quick enemy and will usually take a turn immediately after any of the party members acts. It is best to take the Lamia out quickly before it casts Might on itself too many times, as even high-level characters can succumb to a single blow. It will sometimes use Cure on itself after it is attacked. Lamia is possibly the most troublesome enemy in the game's first disc.
Lamia can be eaten by Quina to learn Lv 3 Def Less.
