Mesiterra: Birth of the Daemons
Your scales slide effortlessly against the sand and you give your tail a flick, relishing the warmth of the desert against your body. You sway your hips as you slither over the dunes. Reaching the top of a large dune you stretch tall and look out towards the horizon. Against the glittering ribbon of sea, you see the desert town of Phaeros. Your forked tongue runs across your lips at the promise of wine and pleasures, and you continue towards the shore.
Lamiakin are smaller and weaker than their cursed counterparts, and do not share the monstrous race’s bitterness or evil. Like true lamias, lamiakin resemble humans or elves fom the waist up, and have the body of a huge snake from the hips down.
In contrast to other races of monsterkin, the vast majority of lamiakin are female, with only a few males ever having been seen. They typically stand about 5’ tall, but they can raise themselves up much higher or drop down lower depending on how they use their snakelike lower-bodies.
