Irresistible Succubus Style (Exalted)
|Title(s)||Irresistible Succubus Style|
|Effects||Heightens an Abyssal’s cold beauty, transforming her visage to match her idealized form|
|First appearance||Exalted: The Abyssals|
Irresistible Succubus Style is a type of Presence, or Charm, which players that are Abyssal in nature can possess as part of their makeup in the Exalted role playing game. While there are no actual Succubi in Exalted as such, this charm has some similar aspects of the powers of a Succubus in some respects.
Irresistible Succubus Style is one possible Charm that an Abyssal may possess and use, but it requires that the Abyssal also possesses the Charm known as Elegant Tyrant’s Majesty before it can be used.
Irresistible Succubus Style heightens an Abyssal’s cold beauty, transforming her visage to match her idealized form. Deathknights using this Charm are alabaster angels or onyx goddesses, achingly beautiful apparitions with flawless skin and ruby lips. A character adds her permanent Essence to her Appearance rating as long as she remains enchanted.
This metamorphosis is no illusion, however, but an ideal brought to life with Essence. As such, the character’s altered beauty cannot be pierced by magic that detects glamour or illusions. In addition to augmenting her beauty, this Charm also causes the Abyssal to exude an aura of seduction.
Players of characters who behold the Exalt or interact with her must make a successful Temperance roll. If the roll fails, the characters find the Abyssal overwhelmingly desirable regardless of their normal sexual preference. They will not harm the Exalt and are likely to behave irrationally in an attempt to impress her. If the Exalt actually wishes to seduce a smitten character, she may do so without a roll.
This aura has no effect on beings with an Essence rating higher than the Exalt invoking the Charm, nor does it affect the Fair Folk. Similarly, this aura has no effect on characters engaged in combat or who otherwise believe the Abyssal means them harm. Overtly hostile acts on the part of the Exalt may render a particular subject immune but do not prevent this Charm from enthralling others.
