Succubi in the Valkyrie Profile console role-playing game are a female vampire-like being known for its decidedly sexual nature.


The succubus is a female vampire-like being (with the incubus being the male version) known for its decidedly sexual nature. Some legends hold that these are fallen angels, turned into nightstalking demons; some Hebrew tales say that Lilith, the first wife of Adam, was the first succubi. The succubus invades the dreams of mortal men, seducing him, at the same time draining him of his life energy.

The devilish part is that, in the throes of the ultimate lust, the poor victim might not care that he is being slowly killed, such is the power of the succubus’ seductive ways. Some people would awake to a heavy pressure atop their chests, and find themselves unable to move, blaming this on a succubus. Today, scientists call this phenomenon "night terrors," and it’s understood today as completely natural… so far as we know.

Valkyrie Profile’s Succubi are just as fearsome as their legendary counterparts. Though these creatures of the night have abandoned their subtle attempts to seduce humans, they have made up for it with strong attacks and powerful magic. They can weave spells that can poison and sicken the hardiest of warriors, letting the venom drain their foes, then moving in for a finishing strike.

Despite their lack of seductive powers, many male warriors let their guard down in the presence of Succubi. All they see are intensely beautiful, albeit pale, women; what, they reason, do they have to fear from mere women? Their chauvinism proves to be their deaths, as the Succubus takes advantage of this underestimation with vicious blows, letting its victim’s last thought be regret that he took the Succubus so lightly…
