Succubus digital painting by mitchfoust

Succubi or Incubi represent the erotic, seductive aspect of evil. Although their true forms are obviously demonic, they are still strangely attractive, and most mortals never see the creature’s true form, but only its idealized humanoid disguises. Less oriented toward physical combat than other demons, succubi and incubi are still powerful creatures with many abilities at their disposal.

A note on spellcasting prestige classes: To meet the spellcasting requirement for a prestige class Succubus prestige class levels do not count, only levels in the base class count. So for example a Succubus who wants to become an Arcane Scholar will require 6 levels of Sorcerer, the levels that grant access to third level spells, before taking the first level of Arcane Scholar. If Arcane Scholar is selected before having 6 levels of Sorcerer the character will not be able to gain spell progression, and a rebuild or delevel will be necessary. When selecting the first level of the prestige class you will be prompted to select a feat with the correct spell progression, in this case spell progression Sorcerer. If the feat does not appear go back and take more levels in the base class before attempting again.
