A beautiful elf walks through a town, her sultry gait gliding gracefully through the main venue. Males of all races drool as their eyes lay on her walking past with a smug smile on her face.
A gorgeous human in the middle of combat looks at one of her enemies and cheekily winks. As if struck in a daze, he drops his weapon. Now defenseless and utterly entranced, he moves to seemingly embrace her gently. She wears a hollow smile as she coldly stabs him and ends his life on the material plane. He falls, eyes still holding onto the gorgeous sight in his last moments
Lethal Eye Candy
Temptresses have historically been creatures who use their bodies and wile to lure others to ruin. Common examples are creatures like sirens and mermaids, who seduce by their looks and voice. A temptress has all the means to beholden another to their desires. They can easily charm with a gesture or a glance tossed. Advanced temptresses develop many tactics to seduce those who are typically immune or on guard.
Creating a Temptress
When creating a temptress you should wonder how you got your powers and what you do with them. Do you inspire good or evil? Temptresses tend to always have chaotic alignments. They tend to wear quite revealing clothes as they are not ashamed but proud of their bodies, using it to their full advantage. Some can be more conservative in dress and rely on the magic of their face and eyes instead.
