Empusa by Lvcifera Empusa by Lvcifera
Ancient Greek mythology:

Empusa is a demigoddess and shapeshifting demoness of Greek mythology. In later incarnations, she appeared as a species of monsters commanded by Hecate. She is often associated or grouped with the demigoddesses Lamia and Mormo, who were likewise related as a kind of spectres in later mythology. Empusa was the beautiful daughter of the goddess Hecate and the spirit Mormo. She feasted on blood by paralyzing and seducing her victims as they slept. Empusa is often pictured with a flaming hair. By folk etymology, her name was said to mean "one-footed." This gave rise to the iconography of a one-legged hybrid, with a donkey's leg and a brass prosthetic leg.

These days I am sure that the Demi-Goddess Empusa could probably do a lot better than a brass prosthetic leg. Especially considering how far in advancement humans have come along at least in the areas of technology.
