The Lamia Queen, also known as the Q.Lamia and the LamQueen, is a boss creature from Final Fantasy II, and the player's first encounter with her is more integral to the story than most other bosses in the game.

Later, the party will encounter another Lamia Queen guarding a treasure chest in Palamecia's castle, and as a random encounter in Pandaemonium.


Story Edit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

While in Palamecian custody on the Dreadnought, Princess Hilda is switched with a Lamia Queen disguised as her to fool the rebel forces. Firion and his party storm the empire's warship and rescue Cid and the false princess, taking them back to Altair. After the party returns from Deist, the Lamia Queen attempts to seduce Firion, revealing her true form, and the party engages her in battle.

Spoilers end here.

Battle Edit

The Lamia Queen is a notoriously tricky foe, utilizing a couple of dangerous status effects to cause havoc among the party. Her regular physical attack frequently puts its targets to Sleep, and she utilizes Charm IX to Confuse the party members. She may also cast Blink XVI on herself, making it nearly impossible to hit with physical attacks. The Sleep effect from Lamia Queen's physical blows tends to wear off quickly, but can be dangerous if it disables the party's main healer.

She sometimes drops some useful equipment giving the party members a considerable edge for what is to come, most commonly the Diamond Cuirass, Protect Ring, and the Ribbon.

Strategy Edit

A Level 5 Basuna spell can serve to cure any confused characters. Shell can increase resistance to confusion—if needed, several Shell Tomes can be procured before the battle and used on the first turn to cast Shell IV on everyone. Silence or Fog can work if leveled high, but the Lamia Queen's Magic Defense makes inflicting either status unlikely. The party should have have sufficient MP before entering the battle, as even one cast of Blink XVI can make her impossible to damage with normal attacks.

Etymology Edit

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.

Trivia Edit

  • This battle has one of the first instances of the song "Battle Scene A."
  • The music just before this battle is from the ballet Swan Lake, by Tchaikovsky.
