SPECIAL ABILITIES

Aura of Seduction (Su)

Any creature within 30 feet of a mythic lamia must succeed at a DC 16 Will save or become fascinated. A creature that succeeds at this save is immune to the lamia’s aura for 24 hours. This is a mind-affecting effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Spells

A mythic lamia 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 mythic lamia.

Wisdom Drain (Su)

A lamia drains 1d4 points of Wisdom each time she hits with her melee touch attack. (Unlike with other kinds of ability drain attacks, a lamia does not heal any damage when she uses her Wisdom drain.)

Lamias try to use this power early in an encounter to make foes more susceptible to charm monster and suggestion.

ECOLOGY

Environment temperate desert
Organization solitary, pair, or cult (3–12)
Treasure double (+1 scimitar, other treasure)

A mythic lamia dabbled in dark pacts or strange magic in an attempt to break the ancient curse that gives her a monstrous form, but instead gained the ability to change her shape as well as other magical abilities. Impressed by her progress but angered by her lack of complete success, she continues her research and plotting.

In most cases, a mythic lamia will permanently transform into a lamia matriarch, losing her mythic power as she stabilizes in that form. A lamia matriarch that gains mythic power gains the mythic lamia’s aura of seduction, a tail slap attack, grab, and constrict.

She increases her sorcerer caster level to 8th and usually learns spells that aid her minions, such as freedom of movement and rage. She may use her touch attack to drain Wisdom or drain one use of mythic power from the target and regain one of her own uses of mythic power (save negates).
