The succubus is a female demon from the depths of Hell. This vampire-like creature preys on men.
Succubi are a powerful race of female demons who are closely related to vampires. Succubi are born in the darkness of the Netherworld, one of the realms of the Underworld, but more than a few have managed to crawl out of Hell, up into the mortal realm. Succubi prey on strong men. They take the form of enchanting women so that they can attract men. Once the man is completely under her enchantment, she kisses him. The minute a succubus's lips touch the mouth of a strong mortal man, his soul is extracted from his body and absorbed by the succubus.
Some myths say that a succubus is not a true demon because even in her demonic form, she still possesses an alien beauty. Others say that a succubus needs mortal souls to survive, like how vampires need mortal blood to prevent their death. These myths are false. A succubus, unlike her cousin, does not need to absorb souls or any substance to survive. Succubi are true demons. The real reason why a succubus steals mortal souls is to keep herself young and beautiful. If a succubus did not steal and devour the souls of strong warriors, she would become a hideous, grotesque and disfigured creature. Becoming such a repulsive creature is, to a succubus, a fate worse than death.
Succubi are cruel, evil demons who care only about themselves. These creatures posses no loyalty or compassion. The succubus is a deceptive creature. She has fooled many with her innocent facade. However, a succubus is only pretending so she can reach her goal. Succubi are relentless and bloodthirsty. If there is something that prevents a succubus from getting her prey, she will eliminate these obstacles.
Succubi are proud and vain creatures, they care about their appearance and hate the idea of being ugly. Succubi will often abandon or even kill another succubus who has become hideous.
The succubus has the body of a tall, elegant human woman. The average succubus is tall with a graceful figure, willowy limbs, long, silky hair and ice cold eyes. Succubi skin can range from deathly white to midnight black and possese a silvery shine. Their hair can be either deep black, pale blonde or fiery red. Growing from a succubus's forehead are long, pointy horns. Her slim arms end in sharp, long claws. Instead of human legs, a succubus possesses goat-like legs covered in pitch black hair. Succubi posses large, bat-like wings and glowing, red eyes and long barbed tails.
In her true form, a succubus's skin is dull, corpse grey, speckled with dust, their hair is dull grey- black, their eyes are bloodshot and black warts and deep wrinkles cover their once, lovely skin. The succubus's black veins can be easily seen and her fangs grow long and sharper than a wolf's teeth.
