Join our Sirens, Serpents and Succubi Preservation Society (established 600 BCE), and raise awareness about these endangered species! Vision: Although these creatures mostly do not need human help to be protected, we wish to raise awareness for their existence in order to keep our ecosystem in balance. Donations are welcome in the form of a human male.
III. The Succubus (plural: Succubi) is a demon, often depicted as a seductive female entity known for engaging with humans, predominantly men, in their dreams. The earliest mentions of these beings can be traced back to medieval legends and biblical texts, where they were often conflated with witches or demonic figures. The most notable early reference is perhaps the tale of Lilith from Judaic mythology, who is considered by some to be the first Succubus. Physically, Succubi have been depicted in various forms throughout history. Common attributes include bird-like claws, horns, and sometimes bat-like wings, symbolizing their demonic nature. Behaviorally, Succubi are known for their manipulation and seduction of humans. This is not merely for procreation or sustenance, as commonly seen in other mythological creatures, but also to assert control or influence.
II. The Serpent, especially a female one, often embodies dualities such as good and evil, wisdom and deceit in various cultures. In many ancient cultures, serpents were seen as entities of power and mystery. Greek mythology portrays serpents in various roles, from the guardian serpent of the Golden Fleece to the Gorgon Medusa, whose hair was said to be made of snakes. In Christian lore, the serpent is famously associated with the tale of Adam and Eve, representing temptation and the fall of man. Physiologically, the serpent's depiction in mythology varies from ordinary snakes to more fantastical forms. Some are portrayed as massive, winged, or even with multiple heads, as seen in the case of the Lernaean Hydra.
I. Sirens, originating from Greek mythology, are often conflated with mermaids in modern times but traditionally are depicted as beings with a bird's body and a human's head. The shift to more mermaid-like looks with this species might have been because its easier to drown than to claw. They are known for their enchanting voices and music, which lures sailors to their demise. In terms of their historical portrayal, Sirens were initially seen as symbols of temptation and danger. However, over time, their narrative has evolved, sometimes portraying them as sorrowful creatures mourning their fate. This, however, the SSSPS believes is just a trick by the creature to have victims be sorrowful for them and be more likely to seek out their song.
