This is a follow-up question to this: How could an abortion cause infertility in a witch?
When the witch connected to a botchling dies, the creature loses its thether and becomes unbound to the mortal realm, leaving them in limbo. Caught between a state of life and death for an eternity, these pitiful creatures cannot interact with the mortal world, nor pass on into the next life to know peace.
Over time, a botchling develops a hatred for all life and morphs into a lamia. These are creatures that prey on both unborn souls and the children of unsuspecting parents. As they were prevented from being born into the world by their witch, their child-like mentality and anger causes them to lash out and take vengeance for their state. They seek to cause suffering to other mothers, killing their own children by slowly draining their life force. Their victims are specific to kids below puberty. The problem is that these beings are still caught in the state of limbo.
How could I design this creature to be unable to interact with anything on the mortal plane, yet still be able to feed on their prey?
