“All cultures from all over the world and from all time periods have reports of a type of vampiric demon that feeds off the sexual energy of humans”[1] The female version of this creature is the Succubus.


The incubus assaults its female victim at night who will experience the event as if it were an erotic dream. The incubus will "lock" on a woman (usually a nun) becoming difficult to drive away. In Christian areas some suggested methods are exorcism, relocating, or repeatedly making the sign of the cross. The incubus can be held at bay via garlic and a Druid stone (a stone with a natural hole through it). The offspring of a Incubus and human female is known as a Cambion.
