The Lamia Queen is an enemy encountered in the Lunar Ruins in the Advance and Complete Collection versions of Final Fantasy IV. It is advised to come prepared with equipment that prevents Confuse, as her Entice ability is used as a counter to attacks. She is otherwise simple to dispatch of.
[view·edit·purge]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.
