Lamia was once a powerful witch who used dark magic to seduce a king, resulting in their child being born monstrous. After the king ordered the death of their child, a grieving Lamia turned mad and devoured the children of others, turning her into a demon. The only way to break her curse was to devour a child of considerable power.


In 1970, Lamia attempted to devour the infant Prue Halliwell when her mother was in the hospital. However, she was thrown out of a window by Penny Halliwell and retreated.

When Piper Halliwell went into labor during the Imbolc, it released a wave of magical power. This was detected by Lamia. She had her minions trap Piper and Leo in the manor with a force field and waited until she would give birth to devour her children. When the time was right, she overpowered Leo and confronted Piper, though she was vanquished by Piper when she and her sisters channeled the power of a coven of witches.
