LAMIA

Greek Evil Goddess

Shape-changing Monsteress

Poseidon’S granddaughter and another mistress of Zeus.

Hera as usual hit the roof when she found out, and killed all the resulting children. Except Scylla because she’d already prophesized her mum was going to have a pretty monstrous time: devouring other people’s babies and making men’s nightmares worse by seeking sex with them.

Despite her shape-changing abilities she was never a pretty sight. She could go from repulsive to hideous to unbearable to the fright night bogey mama of gnashing nightmares.
