Default Sensiria, Potential Ally or Foe?

http://www.wowpedia.org/Sensiria


Well at the end of her quest chain, and to which we were shown that the night elf spirit we were helping was a succubus. She states that she owes us a favor, and will return one day to repay it. Although never trust a demon is used a lot I find it a little odd that Blizzzard has the line of "I owe you, I will return to repay the favor someday" with no intention of having her to assist us in some form. Do you guys think she will return someday to help us for helping her or just shows up to kill us?

I think it was more uttered in the "haha, you idiots" type way.

She'll probably save us from Blackhorn from Hyjal.

Clearly a villain, there was nothing ambiguous about it by the end of the quest chain, either. Just succubi being succubi.

What I find most interesting about her is the ability to turn others into demons. Sure Sargeras was able to create Satyr, but Sensiria is just a minor demon and not the Legion's leader. Is Verinias a Terrorguard or some new kind of demon? (The model could be reused due to laziness one never knows) Was she always a demon and took over Sensiria's (the night-elf Sensiria) body or did the night-elf somehow get turned into a succubus?

I guess Succubi are female Nightelves with fel taint now. Thats one way around the lack of Female Satyrs and Male Succubi... i'm actually ok with it since the Succubi have more Nightelven traits than any alien race has a right having. Hmmm I should likely get around to doing the Feralas quests.

I always thought succubi were just Betty Page knock-offs.

She calls Verinias a young Night-elf though which kind of implies that she had always been a succubus. Otherwise addressing him as a young elf, even though she should be just as young as he is, seems really awkward.

She "owes" us? By that she means, have violent sex with us and then eat us if she ever gets the chance.

Could the Burning Legion have the ability to warp multiple races into the same class of demon?

The quests imply that she has always been a succubus don't let wowpedia trick you into believing otherwise. Verinias is probably not a Terrorguard, and they decided to just use that model because it would be boring if he turned into a Satyr like all the other elves.

That is not what I got from those quests. Why can't they have been turned into demons?

I think its more than her turning into a succubus wouldn't make sense, as they are a specific race.

I think the person who wrote that quest probably wasn't very tuned in to the history of succubi

I always kinda figured this was the case. While it's possible that there were just Night Elves who hitched a ride with the Legion at the end of the WotA, there is at least one example of a Xorothian Satyr. Xoroth being the home world of the Nathrezim.

But then, Satyr were a known thing to the Night Elves before the Sundering, even if it was just through legend. Malfurion knew what Xavius was because of it.

More than likely this was a case of the quest writer knowing there would be a filler model and just wrote the material anyway. And the quest ending is definitely a statement of malefic gratitude ("Thank you for being an idiot, when we meet again I'll make your death slightly less painful.") Demons all see us as insignificant maggots useful only as fodder towards their desired goals.

What I want to know though, what would a female Satyr look like? Is it just Tits or GTFO, or is there a chance we can see some innovation in their form?

He did get turned. I'm not sure if she was turned though. It is never stated that she was turned and the way she addresses him ("That young elf was the first soul I've tasted in ages.") makes it seem as if she had never been an elf and had been in the soul eater métier even before she ate his. The way I see it, she possessed his lover in order to feed on souls, which she had been deprived of. (Maybe because the legion was on a dry spell before encountering azeroth)

What I am hoping for is her to return as a quest giver as in sorts of, "You help me grow stronger, and I will keep you alive, and give you gold and loot." But in all I am curious of what world each demon race heralded from, and what was society like before becoming corrupt

Or maybe over 10,000 years since the sundering she was implying.

I hope the Argus expansion actually elaborates on this. In BC we mostly fought mortals and the demons weren't as imposing as the Legion should be. I also hope that the next time we get playable demons, if there'll ever be a next time, it'll be actual demons rather than a race of pre-demonification demons. Have them joind us put of convenience because they want to be on the winning side and not to create a army of the light.

Could be but I still don't like the idea that anyone can turn into any kind of demon regardless of the original race.

I wouldn't mind having a chaotic neutral faction.
