In Roman mythology, the larvae or lemures (singular lemur) were the spectres or spirits of the dead; they were the malignant version of the lares. Some Roman writers describe lemures as the common name for all the spirits of the dead, and divide them into two classes: the lares, or the benevolent souls of the family, which haunted and guarded the domus or household, and the larvae, or the restless and fearful souls of wicked men. But the more common idea was that the Lemures and Larvae were the same. They were said to wander about at night and to torment and frighten the living.

Trivia

  • An artist, drawing the Magic: The Gathering card Hyalopterous Lemure based on the card name only, mistakenly drew a lemur instead of a lemure, turning what was presumably supposed to be a terrible monster into a moth-winged teddy bear. In the recent Time Spiral expansion a new card named Viscid Lemures was printed, and its flavor text makes fun of the incident. [1]
  • At the Original Video Animation (OVA) of the anime Vampire Princess Miyu (80's),Larva appears as her shinma (a hybrid of God and devil being) companion. Larva's friend, that appears during the 3rd episode of the series is called Lemures.
