The Lamia is a hostile enemy, seen in hardmode Underground Deserts. The light variant will only spawn in non-corrupted and non-crimson Underground Deserts, whereas the dark variant will only spawn in crimson or corrupted Underground Desert. There is not currently a variant that spawns in the Hallowed Underground Desert.


In Greek mythology, Lamia was a queen of Libya who was turned into a child-devouring monster by Hera, the Goddess of Women and Marriage. She was known to have resembled either the appearance put forward by John Keats in his poem entitled Lamia or the appearance of the drakaina Sybaris. Lamia as vicious snake women have generally become a staple of fantasy media.
