He has several tattoos on his upper bicep and forearms. There is a heart tattoo with latin words inscribed underneath. The latin reads:
"Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo,?Aureli pathice et cinaede Furi, qui me ex versiculis meis putastis, quod sunt molliculi, parum pudicum."

IncubusAs an Incubus, Emanuel has inhuman parameters and abilities. His strength, speed, and endurance have all been drastically enhanced, but the demon doesn't often fight or even try to kill. Emanuel instead fights to disarm and subdue, employing kicks and strikes from haphazard angles to take opponents off-guard and break bones. Likewise, Emanuel has a weakness to holy-based attacks and can be easily stunned by them.
Silver TongueEmanuel exudes an 'aura of persuasion' allowing him extra stock in convincing those weaker than him to do his bidding. Against weak-minded individuals, he can pretty much convince them into doing whatever he wishes.
KoryugiWhen he is need of inspiration, Emanuel is able to 'dominate' an individual through a kiss, intertwining their essential life forces. Provided he can overpower them and force their will into submission, Emanuel gains sway over the individual's lust and other emotions. He can force them to perform self-pleasure for as long as he wills it and he can even control their 'release' as he pleases. If need-be, he can also force them to perform other acts as he pleases, provided their volition cannot withstand his grace. [OOC permiss. required]
DecadenceEmanuel can spout several wings and tentacles from his back whenever he wishes. He can create a maximum of six wings from his back, all bearing a stony and gargoyle-like appearance. His tentacles are white in appearance and slimy and he can sprout up to a maximum of 10 at a time for attack and defense if he so chooses.
OnimaruAs a sufficiently powerful Incubus, Emanuel can enter the mindscape of anyone that he has dominated. Provided they cannot/have not resisted him, he is able to alter their sub-conscience, conversing and interacting with them or even affecting their thoughts if he so chooses. With this ability, Emanuel is also capable of traveling back and forth from Alptraum, utilizing the soul of another as a gateway and attaching himself to it.
Emanuel is what you'd call a very 'loose-and-abnormal' type in terms of personality. He's generally affable, easygoing in nature though does tend to express himself in more eccentric fashions, such as erratic finger-tapping, swaying about the floor when excited, or repeatedly kicking a ball around when he's upset. As a person, he's certainly individualistic and his leisurely, playful demeanor makes him easy enough to get along with, despite his odd habits.
While not especially sociable, he enjoy playing around and teasing others in his spare time. He's a bit of a coy, if rather unconventional demon, but there is a dark side to his persona. Emanuel has a rather amoral outlook on life, having no connection to morality whatsoever and just choosing to act as he pleases. He can be drawn to acting on his worst impulses when frustrated or angered and when enraged, he can be rather savage and bloodthirsty.
As a writer, Emanuel does have a more 'passionate' and rather shameless side, particularly when it comes to inspiration and erotica. While this enables him to get a bit perfectionistic in his writing, he also has a dirty side and can be very open about his work. This can make it appear that he has no shame as he has no qualms about asking others to be a part of it, even making the request of complete strangers. Other people are like his guinea pigs, providing him with idea or performing other tasks when he's in a thinking mood.
For an Incubus demon, Emanuel doesn't actually thrive off of raw emotion or seducing others to his bed. Instead, his attractions are more artistic and interested in the pursuit of erotica. While pure sex is still an indulgence, he prefers to take a backseat to capture and watch the experiences of others. A lot of his inspiration and ideas come from interacting with people and he has ill, sadomasochistic tastes.
Emanuel has a very long and storied history, starting with a human soul that had long lost its memories. It had no recollection of the life it possessed before, just a floating soul that wandered the nether reaches of Alptraum. It didn't have any purpose or even a reason for existence anymore, merely to float until it would be most likely have been eaten.
"The meaning of life is that it ends."
And the truth is, it almost was. The soul was strong and despite the years of toil, it still wanted to go on. It moved through the emptiness until it came across a storm demon. This storm demon was near-death after having been beaten and nearly killed in a long battle that had lasted many years.
Despite the demon wanting to eat the soul, it was in no position to do so and soon was set to pass away. The lone soul, looking upon the dead demon, elected to eat the demon and take it into itself. The demon bestowed it with a stronger body, but didn't allow it to leave Alptraum.
As the new half-demon wandered further around Alptraum, it came across more corpses of the dead, each time consuming them and assimilating it into itself. When it had eaten enough, the spirit had ceased to be a mere spirit. It had gained the appearance of an Incubus and through more cannibalism, gained the power to move between the realms.
The incubus, at first moved by its power and newfound freedom, indulged itself as many would have. It reveled in many things, from the feeling of pleasure to the power of sight. It wandered still more, cannibalizing on the demons and other beings it came across until it found that it simply could not eat anymore.
Only than, did the Incubus pause and reflect. What use did it have in eating so much? It had more than enough, including a new life. There was no more need to continue eating, so what was next for it?
After pondering for a little, the Incubus set forth on a journey of self-enlightenment, seeking to discover itself and find something more for it to enjoy. It looked in the darkest and deepest crevices of the world, from hitman to the everyday. Nothing seemed to inflame the passion it once had. That was, until one particular day when something clicked inside... just a plain old book it had been reading.
