The offspring of the Lamia of ancient Greece. They had the body of a goat or serpent with the front legs ending in paws and the hind legs being cloven hooves. Their torso or upper-half from the neck up, was that of a woman with arms. They developed late into medieval legend as creatures that lurked in the forest. At night they would emerge to hunt humans that were nearby. They caused horrible wounds that could only be healed by hearing the call of the creature itself.
