Succubus Descendant[edit]

I'm not automatically evil just because my nature is a bit darker than that of your average tiefling. (...) Yeah, you are right, I can not deny that, but still, I'm not like that. I don't like to do things like this.

Physical Description[edit]

A succubus descendant resembles in the most cases the not fiendish parent. Though there are a few notable differences due to their fiendish heritage. There fingernails resemble black claws and the ears are pointed like an elf's, but with rounder lines. On the head they can have horns and in some rare cases a succubus descendant might also be born with a tail. Sizes differ from individual to individual. The skin colore also gets a bit shifted into the red or grey spectrum.


The succubus descendant are specifically the offspring of a humanoid and a lesser tanar'ri-fiend, which we know as Succubus or Incubus. Such children are also known as cambions, but this term describes all offspring coming from all fiends, devils and demons with humanoids. Succubus descendants are due to their fiendish heritage by nature evil. Though those who had a good-hearted humanoid as father or mother do have a small chance to be also of a good nature. The more the fiend-blood is watered down over the generations, the higher are the chances for the child to be good at heart.


Succubus descendants, just like suucibi and incibi, preffere to flee than fight. This can take on many formes like, staying in the back line and casting spells up to avoiding coflict as good as possible. Many succubus descendants are not what you would call nice persons. Especially those of the first 3 gererations. Rare are the exceptions of the norm within them.

Since the occurrence of a humanoid and a lesser tanar'ri-fiend having offspring is so rare by it self already, succubus descendants are commonly mixed into the population. The highest chance of finding them is in tiefling-towns and -villages.
