Demons is an supplement sourcebook for the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition role playing game. The work was written and published by Mayfair Games. The work appeared in 1992 and was the first of many books to add more detail on demons in the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition which, at that point in time, had removed Demons from the game. The work does feature Succubi, but for some reason they look more like mermaids than the traditional succubus in nature.

Although succubi try to avoid combat whenever possible, they can use their razor sharp talons and fangs to defend themselves.
Succubi were created by Decarabria, Lord of Emptiness, to tempt mortal magic-users susceptible to the sin of lust. Male succubi are known as incubi.
Succubi appear to their victims each night in the form of an alluring woman (incubi appear as men). If the victim fails to save vs. magic, he or she succumbs to the beast's charms and loses the ability to cast 1-10 total spell Skill levels during the next day (the exact spell levels lost are at the magic-user's discretion). Once the succubus has drained a total of 50 spell levels in this fashion, the victim has succumbed to the sin of lust and submitted to Decarabria. If a victim either submits or successfully resists the succubus on three consecutive nights, the beast moves on to a new victim. Particularly potent succubi can appear to a victim in the victim's dreams and needn't appear physically at all.
Succubi are sly and vicious. They will use any means at their disposal to force a target to submit.
The succubi in this sourcebook are a bit more powerful than the 1st Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Succubus which they were modeled after.
