SPECIAL ABILITIES

Alternate Form (Su)

A lamia matriarch has a single humanoid form that she can assume as a standard action—most lamia matriarchs have human, elven, or half-elven alternate forms. Their appearance in this form is identical from the waist up to their serpentine form, yet in humanoid form the lamia matriarch is Medium sized (–8 Strength, +2 Dex, –4 Constitution), cannot use her Wisdom drain attack, has a base speed of 30 feet, and loses her climb and swim speeds.

Skills (Ex)

Lamia matriarchs can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered, and can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks even if rushed or threatened.

Spells (Ex)

A lamia matriarch casts spells as a 6th-level sorcerer and can cast spells from the cleric list, as well as those normally available to a sorcerer. Cleric spells are considered arcane spells for a lamia matriarch.

Undersized Weapons (Ex)

Although the lamia matriarch is large, her upper torso is the same size as that of a Medium humanoid. As a result, she wields weapons as if they were one size category smaller than her actual size (Medium for most lamia matriarchs).

Wisdom Drain (Su)

A lamia matriarch drains 2d4 points of Wisdom each time she hits with her melee touch attack. If she strikes a foe with a melee weapon, in addition to the weapon’s normal damage, she drains 1 point of Wisdom instead. Unlike with other kinds of ability drain attacks, a lamia matriarch does not heal damage when she uses her Wisdom drain.
