Lamia

The caves near the Eastern Shore are home to the Lamia. Docile yet industrious by nature, the Lamia make their living mining gems.   They trade gems and the discarded skins of their young for Dwarven tools and other supplies and luxuries.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

by placing their jaw on the cave wall and tapping it with a hammer, they are able to detect faults in the stone where veins of gems and other ores form. This ability makes them popular guests of Mountain Dwarves wanting to find another vein.

Common Dress Code

Due to their lack of external genitalia and snake-like skin, Lamia tend to have no need for clothing but are known to wear armor when appropriate.
