A female demon is referred to as a succubus. For my future story about Hell, I am thinking of making the female lead a succubus. She starts out as just another demon and is assigned to be the main character’s torturer. She is both inhumanly beautiful and unnaturally frightening at the same time, which makes the main character love and fear her simultaneously. She also just happens to be a descendant of one of the Seven Princes of Hell. However, she starts to fall in love with her would-be victim. By genuinely experiencing love, she starts to lose her demonic nature. Along the way, she starts learning how to be human. She was born only knowing and understanding evil, but after interacting with her would-be victim, she starts turning her back on the darkness. Her character arc involves the complex process of transitioning from being the protagonist’s tormenter and torturer to ultimately becoming his lover and soulmate. You could say she becomes my story’s version of Beatrice from Dante’s Inferno.
