Lemia has completely used the curse to her advantage. In order to protect the people, she controls the snakes, determinded to fight back against the fearsome cryptids. As a result, the people commend her for this and extol her as their queen. The gods in their folly were unable to see the noble heart that lay beneath her beauty.
See Bordello Queen Lamia.
In ancient Greek mythology, Lamia (/ˈleɪmiə/; Greek: Λάμια) was a beautiful queen of Libya who became a child-eating daemon. Aristophanes claimed her name derived from the Greek word for gullet (λαιμός; laimos), referring to her habit of devouring children.
