#AtoZChallenge: Lamia

L

This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes. ย It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants. ย ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Today’s creature is very interesting. It’s the Lamia. The Lamia comes from Greek mythology. The lore about her is that in ancient Greek time she was a beautiful queen who turned into a child eating demon. She was apparently rumored to have been a mistress of Zeus. There are two stories about this and they both involve Hera being jealous. One of them is that she had the queen’s children killed and it caused her to start eating children. Another is that Hera kidnapped them causing the queen to go crazy and turn into the demon.
