You'll have access to three sub-races, Each have their own strengths.

A succubus is a demon in female form, or supernatural entity in folklore (traced back to medieval legend), that appears in dreams and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity.

The male counterpart to the succubus is the incubus. Religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or mental state, or even death.

In modern representations, a succubus may or may not appear in dreams and is often depicted as a highly attractive seductress or enchantress; whereas, in the past, succubi were generally depicted as frightening or demonic

This particular variant may have already gained a foothold as a nobles wife or husband in society and has gone unnoticed or has successfully corrupted the minds of those that live within the region.

Physical Description[edit]

Succubi and Incubi are two names for members of the same race, which appear to be similar to humans in height and weight. However, they have a tendency to be more attractive than most humans are, due to their natural charisma.

They possess devilish tails, horns, and bat-like wings. Their tails, horns, and wings, have a variety of colors, from black, white, purple, blue, ivory, and red.

Their hair possesses the same shades of color as humans do, as do their eyes.

Most of them have a human-like skin tone, however some may possess blue, red, black, white, or purple skin tones, instead.

They may also switch their gender at will to fit their needs or personality.


A succubus was once known to be a type of demon, a beautiful lesser breed of tanar'ri from the Infinite Layers of the Abyss. They existed to seduce and tempt mortals and ultimately slay them and take their life energy back to the Abyss. In the 15th century DR, circa 1479 DR, they were instead considered to be a form of devil of the Nine Hells, and they tempted mortals into villainy. However, after the Second Sundering of 1487 DR, they were known as simply fiends, found across all the Lower Planes and serving all kinds of evil.

The male counterpart of this creature was called an incubus Legend held that incubi and succubi were wholly separate sexes, and the males were significantly rarer than the female of their kind. In fact, with their shape-changing powers, incubi and succubi could both change their sex with ease, though most had a preference for one or the other.
