Succubus

"succubus:

A bracket carved as a winged succubus on the outside of an English inn, suggesting that a brothel could have been found inside.In medieval legend, a succubus (plural succubi; from Latin succubare, "to lie under") is a female demon which seduces men (especially monks) in dreams to have sexual intercourse. They draw energy from the men to sustain themselves, often until the point of exhaustion or death. From mythology and fantasy, Lilith and the Lilin (Jewish), Lilitu (Sumerian) and Rusalka (Slavic) were succubi.

According to the Malleus Maleficarum, or "Witches' Hammer", succubi would collect semen from the men they slept with, which incubi would then use to impregnate women. Children so begotten were supposed to be more susceptible to the influence of demons.

Honoré de Balzac wrote a short story The Succubus concerning a 1271 trial of a she-devil succubus in the guise of a woman, who amongst other things could use her hair to entangle victims.

From the 16th century, the carving of a succubus on the outside of an inn indicated that the establishment also operated as a brothel.


Appearance
The appearance of succubi varies just about as much as that of demons in general; there is no single definitive depiction. However, they are almost universally depicted as alluring women with unearthly beauty, often with demonic batlike wings; occasionally, they will be given other demonic features (horns, a tail with a spaded tip, snakelike eyes, hooves, etc).


In modern fiction
Succubi are often featured in fantasy fiction and role-playing games, and often shown with batlike wings and bikini clad. Succubi are often very prominent in the sexual aspects of fantasy fandoms and paraphilia. Charles Williams's 1937 novel Descent into Hell features an academic who consciously rejects the potential affections of a real woman in favor of a physically identical but perfectly obedient and pliable succubus.

In Dungeons & Dragons succubi are numerous tanar'ri demons, many under the command of the Abyssal Lord Graz'zt. Succubi are featured prominently in the Planescape games, and in D&D the female child of a succubus and a human is traditionally called an "Alu-demon" and the male child a "Cambion". Also, the offspring of an alu-demon or cambion's union with a human is known as a tiefling.

They also appear as enemies in many video game series and can be seen in the Castlevania video game series and in several Blizzard Entertainment games, such as Diablo and World of Warcraft. Drakan features them as well, but the main character is female and thus the emphasis is put on their deceiving qualities. Morrigan Aensland is an individual succubus from the Darkstalkers series, also appearing in many of other Capcom fighting games. Another succubus, Lilith, later made an appearance in Darkstalkers 3 - Jedah's Damnation.

Succubi also appeared in the Starship Titanic game, although not intended as demonic figures - here, they are the 'Succ-U-Bus' (a pun on "Suck-you-bus"), a communications system based on sending messages in containers through a vacuum-powered system. Succubi are featured in Nippon Ichi's tactical RPG Disgaea: Hour of Darkness as an enemy. Succubus is also a level 37 (rather low level) demon in the game Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne on the Playstation 2, and was a remarkable foe in the Madou Monogatari Games series made by COMPILE.

Succubi and incubi are both referenced by the Reverend Hale in Arthur Miller's classic play The Crucible.

In the manga Mark of the Succubus by Ashly Raiti and Irine Flores, a young succubus would rather learn about humans than seduce them.

Succubi appear in television as well. In a South Park Season 3 episode called "The Succubus", Chef tries to marry a woman who turns out to be a demon sent from hell.

Succubi have spread to comics as well, such as the print comic Hellblazer. In Hellblazer, a succubus named Chantinelle falls in love with an angel and bears him a cursed child. Also apearing as one of the main characters in the webcomic Krakow[1] is a succubus named Kia. She falls in love with her victim, Case, and moves in with him and his roommate, Tom. The comic also deals with Kia's family, whose father is the devil, and sisters are succubi (though her younger sister, Guinness, appears to be more naga than succubus).

Castlevania games, starting from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, often include succubi in their bestiary. Usually they appear in form of sexily-dressed or naked women with bat wings on their backs.

In World of Warcraft, an MMORPG game made by Blizzard Entertainment, succubus is a pet of the warlock class.

In popular MMORPG Ragnarok Online, Succubus appear as mentioned before with bat like wings and bikini clad, and can also be tamed as a pet."

"MORA"

Postby Dark Witch » Sun Apr 30, 2006 10:52 am

Speaking of demons, let me ask you all something.

Have you ever been asleep and dreamed of a black-clothed woman that "grabs" your whole body and controls your breath, so that you can't speak, move or even inhale properly? It feels like dying.

In Greece we call this Mora and it is said that if you don't fight it you will die. I don't know if it's a demon or a small heart-attack but...
Has this ever happened to any of YOU?

I have seen this issue in many greek forums online, spoken with many greek people that have had this experience and I'd be interested in knowing if this happens to ordinary persons around the world.

Hospital caused pneumonia to me.
(An acute or chronic disease marked by inflammation of the lungs.)

It is that condition, which the medical practitioners avoid to acknowledge as being caused (most of the times) by having a patient lying on his/her back for prolonged periods of time.

The lungs tend to collapse and flatten under the body's weight and gravitational forces.

Thus, a patient is left to die, suffocating slowly but surely, unless he/she is turned every hour on the hour on both sides, so that the LUNGS can naturally regain their breathing potential.

Obviously, nurses Do NOT do their hefty paid jobs, therefore patients, unable to maneuver themselves, and weakened by the crappy hospital food, are left to die.

This topic should spark others.

Feel free to add your experiences here.

What we today call a wet dream.
Blessed is he who shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is his brother's keeper. And I will strike down those who attempt to destroy my brothers and you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
