Cambion.

Cambions are the half-breed offspring of demons and humans.

Overview

In medieval legend, it was said that a cambion was the half-human offspring of the union between a human male and a succubus, or of an incubus and a human female though in the modern age, it can be with a demon and a non-demon (being it Human, God or any other non-demon). The non-human offspring from whom they believe inherits its supernatural powers and abilities.

The cambion is a stillborn that shows no sign of life outside of being alive, meaning that the child has no pulse and no breath. This continues until the child is about seven years old, where it becomes increasingly difficult to differentiate one from a human.

Nevertheless, cambions are different from their other half-demon relatives as they are often spoiled by their adoring or enchanted parents. Even a strong willed person will bend to the supernatural charisma of a cambion. Because of these dominating urges, many cambions can be controlling and manipulative.

Description

A cambion is usually devilishly cunning, and angelically beautiful, able to persuade even the most strong-hearted individual to do his or her bidding. Most cambions have demonic tendencies due to their demon parents.

Due to its inability to create or nurture life, the method of the creation of a cambion is necessarily protracted. A cambion is often seen as a beautiful human, nearly supernaturally attractive, taking after their infernal parent. Overtime though, their personality soon begins to carve their true appearance, one that nearly resembles their parent. Cambions are also said to surpass their parents in power and strength, due to being a unique breed of demonic beings.

One exception to the rule regarding the supernatural charisma and manipulative characteristics of cambions was likely the one known as Hellboy, who was born in Hell instead of Earth, looking more demonic than most others, having red skin, horns and hooves. Due being christened by agents of Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, his demonic nature was also greatly diminished.
