Undersized Weapons (Ex)

Although a lamia queen is Large, its upper torso is the same size as that of a Medium humanoid. As a result, lamia queens wield weapons as if they were one size category smaller than their actual size (Medium for most lamias).

Entice (Su)

A lamia queen blows a kiss towards her target as pink hearts are being thrown from her lips towards him. The target must make a Will save (DC 22) or be affected as if by a Charm spell for a duration of 1 minute. The charm effect on this ability is harder to overcome unlike other charm spells and has its DC increase by 1. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Local DC 23).

Wisdom Drain (Su)

A lamia queen drains 1d4 points of Wisdom each time it hits with its melee touch attack. (Unlike with other kinds of ability drain attacks, a lamia queen does not heal any damage when it uses its Wisdom drain.) Lamia queens try to use this power early in an encounter to make foes more susceptible to charm.
