Kiss (Su)

A succubus drains energy from a mortal she lures into an act of passion, such as a kiss. An unwilling victim must be grappled before the succubus can use this ability. The succubus’s kiss bestows one negative level. The kiss also has the effect of a suggestion spell, asking the victim to accept another act of passion from the succubus. The victim must succeed on a DC 17 Will save to negate the suggestion. The DC is 17 for the Fortitude save to remove a negative level.

Rejection (Su)

As manifestations of lust, a succubus is subject to metaphysical harm when their advances are rejected. If a creature succeeds in their saving throw against a succubus’ kiss, the succubus becomes flat-footed and staggered until it can find a successful target for its seductive wiles.

Vampiric Touch (Su)

When a succubus strikes a target with her claw attack, the target is also affected as though by a vampiric touch spell (5d6 negative energy damage, see the Starfarer’s Companion). The succubus gains a number of temporary hit points equal to the damage dealt by the vampiric touch.


Environment any (Abyss)
Organization solitary, pair, or harem (3-12)

Demons are fiends that originate from a terrifying realm known as the Abyss. It is a place of pure chaos and pure evil, where a constant war is waged to destroy all of creation. Every living creature… every city… every plant… every standing mountain… entire worlds, if possible, are the ideal target of destruction for a demon.

Demons exist solely to destroy everything they see. While their fiendish counterparts – the devils – seek to manipulate mortal minds and souls, demons desire only to annihilate them. They feed off suffering, mayhem, ruin, and conflict.

Unlike devils, who were once either fallen angels from Heaven or mortals that have had their souls corrupted into a fiendish form, demons are beings created from pure chaos. They are spawned by the foul corruption of the Abyss; an infinite realm of cruelty and depravity. Whenever great death and destruction occurs in the mortal realms, demons begin spawning in ever greater numbers in the Abyss; the wake of destruction seems to call these fiends into existence.

The many different demonic realms of the Abyss are uninhabitable by mortal standards. The rivers and seas are made of acid. The air is poisonous to breathe. Even the land and its plant life seek to devour any unfortunate enough to not watch their step. Demons are properly suited to exist in an environment such as this.

Of the many demons that exist in the universe, a succubus is the one most often encountered in the world. This is due to their extraordinary beauty and carnal desires; traits that attract mortal spellcasters to summon the demons forth to use for their own debased desire. Succubi delight in causing suffering by manipulating the desires of mortals and tempting them into depraved acts that they would normally avoid. This strife often causes the destruction of longterm relationships and sows distrust between life-long friends and lovers.

Succubi are not warriors. Their method of causing destruction is slow and manipulative when compared to other demons. These beautiful fiends will often go to great lengths to avoid battle, using their many demonic powers to assume mortal guises and manipulate others around them to fight in their stead.

A succubus is rarely seen in their true form. The demonic form of a succubus appears to be that of an incredibly beautiful humanoid with dark wings, horns, a lashing tail, and glowing eyes. Succubi can also assume either male or female forms; or any combination of the two. In truth, succubi do not care about the gender of their target, as the fiends can change their own to suit their current needs.
