Introduction
Welcome to the first of many mods that I will be bringing to Darkest Dungeon! My goal with my mods is to create the highest quality content that feels as if it belongs within the base game itself. With that in mind, I want to make sure that this disclaimer is clear:

This mod is not an official Red Hook Studios product or product modification, and Red Hook Studios Inc. is not responsible in any way for changes or damages that may result from using the mod. Furthermore, “Darkest Dungeon” and the Darkest Dungeon logo are trademarks of Red Hook Studios Inc. All content in the game is Copyright Red Hook Studios Inc. All rights reserved.

Almost everything within this mod has been created by me. All of the character art is drawn by me and animated by me.

Class Introduction
A deceitful creature hidden beneath a veil of beauty, the Lamia has two very distinct forms. As a human, she acts as a healer, providing much needed stress relief, curing bleeds and blights, and debuffing enemy targets. However, to maintain her appearance, the Lamia cannot inflict any harm. 

In times of desperation, the Lamia can reveal her true form, replacing her supportive abilities with attacks of unmatched versatility and effectiveness. Unfortunately the hideous appearance of the Lamia can inflict massive stress to her party and such is her nature that as she attacks, she may disrupt her own party's formation.

Regardless of the form she takes, the Lamia is very fragile, relying on either her speed in beast form or her allies in human form to survive. Without the proper protection, the Lamia can easily be rendered useless or, in the worst case, dead.

Special Notes
The Lamia will suffer stress at the start of each of her rounds that she begins in Beast Form, similar to the Abomination.

If she becomes Afflicted in Beast Form, she will revert to Human Form. Take caution!

Unlike the Abomination's Transform, The Veil has no Per Battle Use limit. However, be aware of the damage you are doing to your own team if you shift between the Lamia's two forms multiple times!

Trinkets
If you want to see the effects of each of the Lamia's trinkets, you can find them here.
