Lamia has also been ascribed to a type of feminine creature with serpentine qualities that would seduce and kill men.
- Lamia bears a strong resemblance to a younger version of Hilda. Much like Hilda, Lamia is well-known for being cruel, and derives pleasure from the suffering sustained by other people.
