Infernum - Book of the Damned
Malcubi, also known as Succubi or Incubi, are demons in the Infernum role playing game published by Mongoose Publishing.
Malcubi (the gender neutral plural term- Incubus is the male singular, Succubus the female single) resemble gorgeous human beings of the appropriate sex, were created as an alternative way to breed demons (the default is dissolving a living demon in an alchemical pit, known as a Spawning Pit, with its organs mutating into maggot-things that will mature into full demons after about 6 months) and quickly shifted to being prostitutes for the creators of the demon breeds.
However, they have no innate ability to harm their lovers through physical contact (beyond their claws); their racial powers consist of preternatural charm, bat-like wings to let them fly, mind control, and entering the minds of dreamers. It's played straight, however, with the Chain of Lust collection of mutations. This set of four powers allows the demon to befuddle the minds of others, and culminates in the Succubus Kiss, which lets the demon drain energy from others with a touch.
The Chain of Lust, however, is a Common mutation and can thus be taken by any of the nine breeds This includes Artificers (dwarfish things with exoskeletons of steel), Beasts (which look like demonic Furries at best and Cosmic Horrors at worst) and Imps. There are also two Houses (essentially countries, in political terms) devoted to this trope; Astyanath are Cenobite-style worshipers of pain, while Riethii are more traditional hedonists.
