Satana is a half-demon and half-human sorceress. On the one hand, her father is an arch-demon and she requires soul energy to sustain herself on Earth. Satana is a skilled sorceress who learned from demons. On the other hand, she resists her father's attempts at meddling and manipulation and ultimately tries to do the right thing.
* 1997 - Satana was born to the archdemon Marduk Kurios (under the guise of Mr. Hellstrom) and the human woman Victoria Wingate. She was 3 years younger than her brother Daimon. The family lives in a mansion on Fire Lake where the children are home schooled.
* 2003 - Victoria walks in on 6 year old Satana performing a ritual for her father involving a cat, a knife, and a lot of blood. Dad (who likes to call himself Satan) reveals his true nature to mom, and the whole thing ends badly. Mom gets committed to an asylum.
* 2004 - Daimon and Satana get separated and sent to foster homes. Satana never arrives and is taken to her father's realm of Hell instead. She is schooled in demonic powers there, and Kurios bonds a powerful demon named Basilisk to her soul. Satana is presented with a demonic familiar named Exiter and a demonic companion/slave named Zannarth. She studies under Dansker, an ancient demon.
* 2015 - After Satana's 'graduation', she and Zannarth are both banished from Hell. Zannarth is banished to a netherworld, while Satana is banished to Earth. In Manhattan, Satana discovers how to drain the soul energy from men and feed on it. Following her instincts, she moves to Los Angeles and becomes involved in the Church of the Dark Father.
* 2016 - Satana spends a few years foiling her father's attempts at manipulating her for his own ends. She is reunited with her brother, sometimes joining forces and sometimes at odds. Satana is repeatedly slain, returned to Hell, and summoned back to Earth by various foes and allies. In one instance she is slain by Basilisk, who then perishes since he is bound to her.
* 2020 - Satana finds herself summoned back to Earth by unknown agents.
While Satana has embraced her demonic nature, she will most often do the right thing (even if it's for the wrong reasons). If her father wants her to recover a powerful artifact, she'll recover it and then give it to someone else for safekeeping rather than seeing it in her father's hands.
As a further note, Satana is selective when it comes to stealing soul energy for her sustenance. This isn't something she does casually or lightly, and she prefers those whose souls are already tainted with darkness.
While preparing to perform a ritual, Satana doesn't think twice about peeling down naked 'for more freedom of movement'. Likewise, if she needs a soul energy fix, she won't hesitate to pose as a streetwalker to lure in a victim.
Satana likes to flirt and tease, especially if she thinks it will make someone uncomfortable.
Satana is confident in her strengths and knowledge, sometimes relying upon them too heavily and diving headlong into trouble.
Perhaps 'sarcastic' is even too mild a term to describe her. Snarky and caustic might be more appropriate, even. Regardless, Satana has a dry wit and when her patience runs thin she can be almost verbally abusive.
Satana doesn't forget those who have wronged her in the past, and she will often go to great lengths to settle old scores.
Satana is able to project her soul to the Astral Plane and use her powers there. She is also able to astrally project others and bring them along with her. Satana can determine whether someone else is astrally projected, and can detect astral events without projecting herself directly.
Due to her half-succubus blood, Satana can operate for days at a time on little to no sleep. She can also expend tremendous amounts energy in spell casting, tapping into physical reserves that would kill a normal human through exhaustion. Satana can quickly recover from an exhausted state by draining soul energy, if necessary. She is also immune to aging, normal diseases and normal toxins than humans. She is succeptible to magical or interdimensional diseases and toxins, however.
As a result of her half-demonic heritage, Satana has an enhanced physique compared with full humans. She is strong enough to bench press up to 10 tons even in human form. While this also allows her to leap and jump extraordinary distances, Satana doesn't possess any gymnastic or tumbling training. She is also quite strong enough to fly when she sprouts wings in demonic form. Satana is quick enough to dodge bullets if she can see them, but again has no substantial training in hand combat. While she is certainly not invulnerable, Satana can also withstand a tremendous amount of physical punishment (proportionate to her strength).
Satana can, if she chooses, alter her physical appearance to become more demonic. The shift is gradual and takes a couple of minutes to complete. Scaley skin, demonic eyes, horns, talons instead of fingers, and a fanged maw are all typical changes that she can affect. She can even sprout wings, cloven hooves, and the traditional spade-tipped tail if she chooses. Of course changing back is just as easily accomplished, and she changes back automatically when she becomes unconscious.
While in altered form, she gains animal equivalent attributes. Depending on what she chose to manifest, she could gain the claws and teeth of a big cat, a tail with gross motor skill manipulation, wings with a flight speed of 30 mph, and scaled skin resistance to small arms fire and knives. Cloven hooves would make it easier for her to climb surfaces with little footholds (much like a goat), but would be of no benefit in clogging whatsoever. Demonic eyes would gain night vision equivalent to predators like owls or big cats, and could even see into the ultraviolet or infrared spectrum.
Satana is effectively immortal. When she dies, she goes to Satan's realm and can later return to the world of the living.
Satana can levitate, but only herself and a modest amount of additional carrying weight. She can only move vertically up and down, and cannot truly fly without growing wings.
Satana learned demonic magic from Dansker, an ancient demon in her father's realm. Her magical knowledge is quite extensive and she can cast a wide variety of spells. Satana's spellcasting takes on one of three forms. Instantaneous, a technique which is fast but also taps into her personal energy reserves. Ritual, which requires little of her personal energy but takes a good deal of time. And lastly, tapping into some ambient mystical energy such as an ancient graveyard. When given the choice, she prefers to perform the appropriate ritual. It should be noted that her magical power increases with the more souls she has consumed.
Satana's magical education is the equivalent to an advanced collegiate degree. She understands the basic manipulation of physical and elemental forces, of course. Something like nature magic or weather control, which she has not had any experience with, would be difficult without any guidance. Her specialty, however is in interplanar knowledge, summonings, banishments, and soul/spirit energy. There are very few who know more about Demonology than Satana. Her understanding of soul and spirit energy comes mostly from her manipulation of others.
Satana has some ability to control the minds of others through hypnosis and verbal suggestion. (OOC consent is required for the use of this ability.)
Soul Drain Kiss:
Satana can, with an intentional kiss, drain a mortal's soul. (This is not an effect of every kiss.) The soul leaves the shrivelled body in the form of a butterfly, which she crushes to absorb its essence. Once the soul is drained, the spirit passes down to her father's realm of Hell. It is possible, through more careful application of the kiss, for Satana to take smaller 'sips' of soul energy without killing the victim.
This power does not affect females and cannot affect psychic or psionic vampires. Also, her power ONLY affects mortal souls. It would have no effect on beings such as Kryptonians or Asgardians, for example. (Use of this power also requires OOC consent.)
Soul Power Absorption:
Satana can ritually adorn weapons with her bodily fluids, typically her blood. When someone is slain by such a prepared weapon, she absorbs their soul energy. Bullets, knives and arrows all function well in this respect. She can also place her mark upon someone (typically a symbol traced in her blood) and absorb the soul energy of victims slain by them.
This power follows the same limitations as Satana's Soul Drain Kiss regarding beings who are resistant as well as OOC consent.
Satana can cast bolts of Soulfire. It is drawn from soul energy, typically of the wielder. The soulfire bolts can take a couple of forms. First, they can cause psychic pain and damage the soul of the target without causing physical harm. Alternately the soulfire bolts can feel like physical force or heat, hitting with enough physical force to damage reinforced concrete or searing with the heat of a cutting torch. Soulfire can also damage magical constructs.
Satana subscribes to the viewpoint that 'technology is nothing more than debased, artifical magic'. She frequently experiments with combining magic and technology, sometimes even with successful results. An example of this is her using a magnetic energy tracker to locate a specific soul in the Hell. She still hasn't managed to get a good internet connection in Hell when she goes down to visit, however.
Satana can teleport up to 25,000 miles in emergencies. She cannot teleport others, just herself. This is not an instinctive ability, but something she accomplishes through magic. She prefers to use burial grounds as gateways to teleport between dimensions; the older the better.
Even though she grew up in her father's plane of Hell, Satana speaks a couple of languages besides English. The first is Latin, the language of the Church. The second is Hyperborean, the language of ancient magic.
Satana is a half-human, half-succubus who was taught magic while growing up amongst demons. She knows how to both cast spells as well as perform witchcraft rituals.
Satana studied magic and the occult while she grew up in her father's realm. Learning both at the feet of an ancient demon gave her not only vast knowledge, but also a unique perspective. Satana has not only learned magic spells, but also about other dimensions, magical forces, and of course demons. Her specialty is demons and infernal magic, and she has a good general knowledge of most other types of spells.
Satana has a way with people, putting it quite simply. Part charisma and part succubus sex-appeal, she can be quite good at convincing people to do what she wants. At least until she loses her temper.
When she was first exiled to Earth, Satana needed to feed on souls in order to survive. She quickly learned the art of seducing men in order to get what she wanted (their soul energy). And being half succubus, she became quite good at it. (This requires OOC consent.)
In Los Angeles, Satana got involved with the Church of the Dark Father, a cult dedicated to her father, Zurios. While she and her father don't currently agree on everything, the cultists would certainly recognize her lineage and lend aid.
While Satana and her brother last parted on less than amicable terms, they ARE still siblings. And even though she swore to drink his soul, it's quite likely that either would come to the other's aid in a pinch.
Kurios is Satana's father, an archdemon who also calls himself Satan. (Note that, in spite of this egotistical presumption, Kurios is NOT Lucifer but merely an archdemon.) Although Satana continues to reject his plans for her, Satan keeps trying to lure her into his service.
Satana has had various demons subservient to her over the years, either as familiars or slaves. Exiter, Zannarth, and the Basilisk are notable ones from her past, although all of these have since perished.
Satana has a host of enemies that she's made throughout the years. They include the Four (Karath, Raga, Ellin, Trachos/Miles Gorney), a group of animal-headed demons aligned to banish Satana to Earth. There are also many unnamed demons, worshippers of her father, and others who carry a grudge against her for various reasons.
While Satana has more readily embraced her demon heritage than her brother Daimon, she has also defied her father's wishes and plans on more than one occasion. And he isn't exactly known for his forgiving nature.
Being part-succubus doesn't come without its downsides. The biggest one is that, like any other demon, Satana can be summoned by somebody who knows what they're doing. Of course they need to know a bunch of things such as her name, father's name, plane of origin, rituals, protective circles, etc. But it CAN be done, and there's nothing she can do to resist it.
Another negative to her infernal heritage is that Satana is particularly vulnerable to divine magic in most of its forms. Divine magic and artifacts will quickly cut through even HER mystical defenses.
Need To Feed:
Satana requires occasional feedings of soul energy in order to survive on Earth. This can come from a soul-draining kiss or even from a weapon or person she has marked to transfer soul energy of slain victims to her. This is a quick way to recharge her energy after particularly draining spell casting.
While Satana isn't exactly a household name, those in mystical circles know her for what she is: a soul-sucking half-succubus. And it comes as no surprise that those in the know are often reluctant to trust her.
To put it politely, Satana has a temper. While she can keep her composure for a while, once she loses her temper all diplomacy and rational thought goes out the window. She's likely to react impulsively, if not rashly, without thinking through long-term consequences.
