The personality of a Lamia varies heavily depending on how they are brought up; while most are rather calm, collected and mischievous, there are some who are rather manipulative, callous and deceptive.
Physical Description Edit
The upper body of a Lamia resembles that of an elf, with sharpened facial features and pointed ears. They also tend to be quite slender, with almost flawless skin and an unimaginable amount of beauty. Their lower body, as in everything below the waist, turns into something quite horrifying; a serpents tail replaces their legs, running as short as ten feet, although many are much longer.
Their race is very tribal; as such, their relations with other races depend on where their tribe is based. However, the general consensus is that Elves are their ancestors; somewhere up the tree sits an elf. Without elves, Lamia would not exist, so almost every tribe you would come across get along well with Elves of all kinds, even Drow. Lamia also tend to get along with other reptilian races; this includes Dragons.
