Cambion (Firmament)

From Bestiary of the Hypogriph


Cambions, sometimes given names such as half-fiends or half-demons, are the direct offspring of demons and mortals who blur the line between humanoids and outsiders. Their angelic counterparts are called Nephilims.

Biology[edit | edit source]

Cambions generally resemble monstrous versions of their mortal parent's race, twisted and corrupted into infernal forms. They are born with natural affinity with demonic magics and tend to be far stronger, faster, tougher and longer-lived than common members of their species. The demonic features of a Cambion lessen with each generation that follows them, though the demonic taint in their bloodline may manifest generations later as an Eshmaki. Most Cambions are born of Incubi, though exceptions exist.

Society[edit | edit source]

Culture[edit | edit source]

Cambions tend to be more closely related to their demonic forefathers than their mortal parents, and as such gravitate towards accepting the behavior of demons as their own, leading them to be extremely dangerous and evil creatures. In most cases, Cambions will kill their mortal parents at birth, destroy their original homes and attempt to reach Irkalla in order to achieve true demonhood. Cases where Cambions do not completely fall to darkness are exceptionally rare.

Religion[edit | edit source]

Due to their very strong demonic heritage, most Cambions are inclined towards worship of the demon lords.

Relations with other races[edit | edit source]

Like demons, most Cambions are content to torment and destroy anyone who does not submit to them. Those who manage to control their fiendish attributes tend to relate better with other half-breeds.
