Succubus was a Venus flytrap-like Horror that possessed Erina Tokiwa, an ikebana artist who created works with the theme of death.
Dissatisfied with her current works, Erina committed murder to get to higher stages of her art, which turned her pruning shears into an Inga Gate from which Succubus emerged from. Because of her indifference towards death, Erina was allowed a sense of self in the possession and acted on her desire to create art from victims, by petrifying and turning them into mannequins with sprouting flowers for her art while consuming the petals they produce. Erina took an interest in Mayuri and intended to make the girl into her masterpiece before Raiga intervened. Despite losing interest after realizing that Mayuri is nothing but an object, she fights Raiga nonetheless due to him destroying her work. During the battle that followed, Succubus is slain by Raiga with Erina lasting long enough for the euphoria of her impending death to turn into utter dread.
