Do you know what a “cambion” is? My spellcheck insists it isn’t a word, but it really is. According to Wikipedia, a cambion is “the offspring of an incubus, succubus, or other demon with a human, or of an incubus and succubus.” Now I’ve gotta define what an “incubus” is, and what a “succubus” is. Can’t just assume that everyone who reads this is going to know. An incubus is a sexually specialized demon, of the male variety. Demons don’t always have genders, or genitalia. An incubus has boy parts, and a tendency to use them. Likewise a succubus is a female demon, with girl parts. Succubi, which is the plural of succubus, in particular have the nasty habit of appearing as beautiful women out to seduce men. They only reveal their true forms after the poor dude has been, um, taken advantage of.
Okay, so a cambion is the offspring of a human male and a succubus, or a human female and an incubus. But Wikipedia also says that it can be the offspring of an incubus and a succubus. M’okay. But it also also says some “other demon” could serve as co-parent of a cambion. But if a demon can have sex and reproduce with a human, then by definition it is either an incubus or a succubus, thus that part about some “other demon” is redundant.
