“Incubi in natural form appear very much like largish human males with these differences: Small horns project from the sides of the forehead; they have a large pair of bat-like wings extending from their back, and their hands are typically clawed; they usually dress in fairly expensive-looking clothes, and don’t usually use weapons.” – “Incubus” by Craig Stenseth, Dragon #54 (1981)
