#1. Xaphan

| November 1, 2010 | 7 Comments

Robert Xaphan was once human. One night he brought home what he thought was a beautiful woman, but what was in actuality a shape-shifting succubus. This particular species of succubus transfered its demonic curse via sexual intercourse, and the following night Robert regained consciosness to find himself transformed into a demon.

Because of his metamorphosis Xaphan has left his former life, and he now prowls the night, feeding on the life-force of those unfortunate enough to cross his path, all the while hoping that there exists some mystical means by which he might be cured. 

Powers: Flight, regeneration, strength, speed, agility, fiery breath

Limitations: If Xaphan does not absorb the life force of a human at least every three days, he will become significantly weak and die.

      Thanks for the comment! I couldn’t think of any other heroes who got their powers by sexual transmission. Though it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s been done before.

    HA, if women could only be that evil! Love it!

    Great back story, and very cool dark gritty visual vibe you have going on.
