Alersia is a Succubus NPC character created by Richard Pett who appeared in the Serpents of Scuttlecove adventure published in Dungeon magazine issue 146. As her role in this adventure was very limited, little character information or statistics were provided for her. The only note made of her situation or character was that she was the favorite plaything of a Leech the players encounter and battle.
Alersia appears when the characters enter the lair of a Leech and she is summoned to help defend him, she being seen as one of the Leech's favorite playthings. Alersia transforms herself to look like Harliss, a person the players are looking for. She then feigns unconsciousness with her Bluff check, and as the player characters approach moans as if in great pain. On the third round, she opens her eyes and embraces the nearest player character, using her energy drain as she kisses that player character in feigned relief.
The players are then attacked and the Leech takes advantage of these three rounds to cast corrupt weapon on his scimitar, followed by eagle's splendor. When combat begins, the attackers move in to engage the player characters in melee while the Leech fires at any obvious clerics or paladins with his bow. Alersia continues using her energy drain as long as she can, but if attacked she teleports to the Leech's side to continue the fight using her spell-like abilities. When the players appear to be winning the battle, Alersia will teleport away to save herself rather than continue the fight.
As per the standard Succubus statistics found in the Monster Manual, page 46. She has 33 Hit Points.
