NAME ORIGIN
    Lamia was a monster from Greek mythology. Originally a beautiful queen of Libya, she had an affair with Zeus and bore him children. Zeus' wife, Hera, discovered the affair and killed the children in rage and transformed Lamia into a hideous creature. Lamia, driven insane with grief, began kidnapping children to suck their blood. She was described as having the head and breast of a woman and the body of a serpent. Her name derives from the Greek laimos meaning "throat, gullet". A matriarch is a woman who rules a family, clan or tribe. The word comes from the Latin mater meaning "mother" in contrast to patriarch, a man who rules a family, clan or tribe.
