V&V Vendesday: Kaalis

Name: Kaalis    Side: Evil     Gender: Female      Height: 5'11"     Weight: 160 lbs

Physical Description: In her true form, Kaalis appears as a tall female with lightly purple-ish skin, goat-like legs, a prehensile tail, horns on her forehead, over-sized ears, and bat-like wings.  She normally carries a whip in this form.  She can shapeshift into a number of human-looking forms, all of which will be of attractive females.

STR: 13     END: 20      INT: 13     AGL: 18/21     CHA: 19

Level: 6th     XP: 20,696     Basic Hits: 4     Hit Points: 23/26     Healing Rate: 2.0/day     Movement: 51”/54" running, 567" flight       Power: 64/67     Carrying Capacity: 336 lbs

Weaknesses
Takes 2d8 damage from a splash of holy water, x2 damage from silver and sunlight based attacks (and 1 pt of damage per turn in direct sunlight); if in human guise, any of these attacks will force her to assume her true form.  Also susceptible to summonings, banishings, and wardings.

Areas of Knowledge
Nether Realms, Seduction & Corruption

Character Notes/Origin/Personality: Kaalis is a succubus, a demon who has been seducing and corrupting mortal for untold ages.  She can travel between the nether realms and the earthly realm at will, which places her fairly high in the hierarchy of demons, above many such beings who are perhaps more physically threatening.  She is not adverse to using her demonic abilities when needed against normal mortals, but prefers to work in the shadows against superhuman foes whenever possible.  The seduction and corruption of superheroes is considered a grand accomplishment among succubi, but Kaalis is careful in choosing such targets; she will avoid magicians, psychics, and any one else whose abilities might allow them to deduce her true nature.

The destruction of the hated foe Sunshine Scout is considered a high priority among the demons currently on Earth.  Kaalis greatly desires this accomplishment for herself, but feels no inclination to confront Sunshine Scout directly, preferring instead to seduce various supervillains into attacking her, and perhaps even tricking a superhero into doing so.  Kaalis will only step in directly to finish the job if she is certain that Sunshine Scout is indeed helpless, having no desire to get into anything remotely resembling a 'fair' fight.

Campaign Use: A friendly NPC might fall under Kaalis's wiles, with the PC's eventually having to save them.  Alternatively, Kaalis may target a PC directly (the 'girlfriend from hell' storyline pretty much writes itself, doesn't it?).  If Sunshine Scout is in the PC's city, Kaalis is sure to be nearby, trying to manipulate others into attacking her.
