Design details

In the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, Lady Lynkhab is a demon lord. She is the Lady of Desire and Depression. She is also called the Lady of Regrets and is a patroness of the self-destructive and suicidal. She was a contender for the title of "Queen of Succubi," which is currently held by Malcanthet.

Publication history[edit]

Lynkhab was first mentioned in Faces of Evil: The Fiends (1997).[1]

Lynkhab received further details in third edition in Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss (2006).[2]

Creative origins[edit]

Lynkhab made her debut in the Planescape accessory Faces of Evil: The Fiends. She became a demon lord of succubi in the game's third edition sourcebook Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss. Although she has been described, no game statistics have been published for her.

Description[edit]

As Lady of Desire and Depression, Lady Lynkhab is said to represent the concept of desire and the power to express it, but only other people's desires. Her depression stems from the fact that she cannot express or act upon her own concepts. Lynkhab has assumed many different forms throughout her existence, all supposedly based on the desires of other beings. Her current form is that of a voluptuous red-haired female elf. However, she desperately wants to be more than a demon lord; she wants to be a true deity. Thanks to her own innate nature and the aftermath of the war with Malcanthet, she can't advance herself to anything more. Even though she still rules her own layer of the Abyss, Lynkhab is said to frequently wander the plane, looking for anyone who can end her miserable existence.

Relationships[edit]

Lynkhab once warred with Malcanthet, Xinivrae, and Shami-Amourae for the title of Queen of Succubi.

Realm[edit]

Lynkhab rules the 297th layer of the Abyss called The Sighing Cliffs, which has yet to be described in detail.

History[edit]

Very little has been revealed about Lynkhab except that she, Malcanthet, Xinivrae, and Shami-Amourae were among the first of the succubi to spontaneously arise from the Abyss from the mortal sin of lust. These succubi warred amongst themselves for rulership and supremacy over their race and in the end, Malcanthet assumed the title of Queen of Succubi. Xinivrae and Shami-Amourae, have either been exiled or imprisoned by Malcanthet. Lynkhab herself survived the war but is said to be but a shadow of her former glory.
