Succubi (DarkRealms Universe)
A DarkRealms Succubus
|Character in Series||
|Appearance||Various DarkRealms Universe Storylines|
|Physical Aspects||Generally Human appearance with horns, wings and tail|
Succubi in the DarkRealms Universe story universe are beings that feed off the sexual energies of humans and other unseen. This is usually achieved through sexual intercourse and can be potentially fatal to the victim should a succubus chose to drain away all of her victim's sexual energy. Generally speaking, succubi avoid killing their prey so as to not bring unwanted attention upon themselves, but if they have gone too long without feeding they may lose control and kill their victim.
In her default form a succubus possesses the outward appearance of an extremely attractive human woman, but they posses another form that lingers just below the surface. This 'demon form' may be called up at will. The transformation process, while brief, is extremely painful and the succubus will feel as if she had been set afire.
A succubus in her full demon form, possesses lavender-colored skin, a set of long bat-like wings, and curled ram-horns, but otherwise resembles her default form.
Awakening and Reproduction
Aside from reproduction with an incubus there is another way in which a succubus may reproduce and that is by turning a human. This must be done while a succubus is in her demon form and is accomplished by funneling a massive amount of sexual energy into a human victim. Succubi and incubi seldom cross paths, but when they do they will find themselves inexplicable drawn to one another. A child is nearly always the product of such a meeting and there is no telling whether the baby will be a succubus or incubus until they awaken. Additionally, after the initial pairing a succubus will then mate with a human in order to provide a human guise, sometimes referred to as a 'shell', for the unborn child.
Children of succubi and an incubi are almost always orphaned by their parents and for this reason, they are nearly always unaware of their heritage. Until, a succubus awakens he or she will be completely indistinguishable from the human she believes herself to be. Even others of her kind will have a difficult time identifying her as a succubus. Generally, an unawakened succubus will not change until reaching sexual maturity and even then not until they have had sexual intercourse for the first time. In rare instances other stimuli, such as a near death experience or severe illness, may cause them to begin changing.
By random accident of genetics a succubus may be either male or female before she awakens. This is because the human shell a succubus wears before her awakening is provided by a human 'father'. The gender of the shell is dependent on whether the sperm provided by the human father carries an X or a Y chromosome.
Succubi possess enhanced physical endurance and almost boundless energy when they have properly fed. On the surface succubi may seem fairly harmless, but they possess a number of abilities that make them extremely dangerous.
Succubi possess a means of entrancing a potential victim so as to make them easier prey. Generally human women are more resistant to this effect but will almost always succumb if a succubus puts enough effort into seducing the woman.
When in her demon form, a succubus may completely enslave a human being to her will. Many succubi will only do this in the most dire of circumstances and usually only as a means of self-defense. Once, a succubus enthralls a human in this manner, she must maintain her demon form until the last remnants of her victim's personality and consciousness fades away. When this process is completed a succubus may return to her human form without fear of losing control of the thrall. The process generally only works on the weak minded, but a strong willed succubus will be capable of enthralled much stronger-minded individuals.
Succubus also possess enhanced healing capabilities, but their ability to heal is largely dependent on how well they have fed. Feeding accelerates the process.
There are four named succubi in the DarkRealms Universe: Rachel, Leena, Selina and Stacy. Of these, Leena, who is the mother of Archie (aka Rachel) and Selina little is known of.
- Name: Rachel Linsey McKenna
- Formerly Known as: Archibold "Archie" Tucker
- Age: 21
Rachel was a student at Ravencrest University who was completely unaware of her own heritage as a Succubus and the existence of the Unseen. Prior to her awakening she was male. She would go on to chose the name Rachel, out of horror from what she had become. Believing that her previous self, Archie, would have never done the things she had done. With the help of Lillian and her DBZ sister, she would receive a new identity and take the surname McKenna. She is responsible for turning Col. Steagan into a succubus.
Abandoned at an orphanage as an infant, Archie was never adopted and spent most of his childhood in various orphanages and foster homes. Having never received a name from his mother, Archie was given the name Archibold Tucker by the Nun who found him on the doorstep of the orphanage. Archie did well in school despite many disadvantages and managed to score well on the SAT and earned a scholarship to Ravencrest University.
He resented being abandoned by his parents and was afraid of letting people get too close as a result. As a defense to his broken past, he became angry and resentful, lashing out at everyone around him. He had very few friends, until he met Daniel Corday, who recognized that beneath Archie's mask of anger and resentment lurked a lonely person who could use a friend. Out of concern for his friend, Daniel frequently pushed Archie to get out and socialize. It was at Daniel's insistence that Archie agreed to visit a local club where Archie would meet Selina. Unfortunately, Selina was unaware that Archie was a pre-succubus and by having sex with him she inadvertently awoke his true self. She tried to explain this to him the next morning, but he did not initially believe her.
In the company of Selina and Daniel, Archie soon found himself on the run from a shadowy paramilitary organization known as the Tenebris Petentibus. As time passed he found a strange hunger awakening within him and shortly afterward he began his transformation into a succubus. After her transformation, Archie would eventually take the name Rachel.
- Name: Selina (no known surname)
- Age: Unknown, but appears to be in her early twenties.
Selina is a succubus who mistakenly awakened Archie Tucker after seducing and having sex with him. She dislikes that she must feed on humans, but accepts that she must do so in order to survive. It is later revealed that Archie and Selina are sisters.
Selina is a breathtakingly beautiful woman who is about five-foot-six inches tall, she has long red hair, blue eyes and an hourglass figure. While she may appear to be in her early twenties she is much older and moves with the confidence and grace of a woman who knows what she wants.
Before her awakening as a succubus, Selina fell in love with a man named Shamus and married him. After making love to him for the first time Selina awakened and fed on her husband and unintentionally killed him in the process. Extremely distraught by what she had done, Selina ran away from her life and completed her transformation while in flight.
Sometime before coming to Ravencrest, Selina was abducted and experimented upon by the Tenebris Petentibus. She managed to escape captivity, but soon found that wherever she went they were soon to follow. When she came to Ravencrest she believed she had finally managed to escape them, but soon discovered that she was wrong.
- Formerly Known As: Colonel Albert Steagan
- Age: 58
Stacy appears to be in her mid to late 20s in age with dark hair. She tends towards a overall Goth-like appearance.
Once Colonel Albert Steagan, a field commander for the Tenebris Petentibus, who came to Ravencrest in pursuit of Selina. Cruel and ruthless, Steagan had no compunction about killing innocents who interfered in his mission. He was transformed into the succubus known as Stacy by Rachel.
