TV show description:
This TV show follows the life of a succubus as she learns to control her abilities, helps those in need, and discovers the truth about her origins.
Bo (Anna Silk) is a Succubus, a mythological creature who uses sex to feed, heal, and kill. Raised as a human by strict adoptive parents, she was taught that sex of any kind was evil. However, at age 17, Bo’s internal need for sexual energy, or ‘chi,’ became so strong that she gave in to her urges. Bo was untutored in her power and unaware of how to control it, which led her to accidentally kill her first lover.
Traumatized by this event, Bo left town and vowed to never succumb to her urges again. It’s a promise she’s incapable of keeping, leaving her with an increasing body count and mounting regrets. But all is not lost: she soon meets the Fae, her ancient, long-warring kin, and is told she can be taught how to control her appetites and have a “normal” life. But first, she must learn which of them to trust. Along the way, Bo uses her supernatural abilities to help others while trying to navigate her first real romantic relationships (and a tense love triangle), take ownership of her sexuality, and find her birth mother to unravel the mystery of her origins.
Bo finds a steadfast ally in Kenzi (Ksenia Solo), a con artist and thief. She’s also an extremely street-smart girl, despite her youth. She is Bo’s main and only true confidante, and her resourcefulness makes her very useful. Using her wide array of contacts, Kenzi can get Bo whatever she needs in virtually any situation. Kenzi’s more savvy and cynical nature makes her very protective of Bo, as Bo can be fooled in ways that Kenzi can’t. Kenzi has had darkness in her past, but unlike Bo, she refuses to dwell on it as Kenzi is a true survivor. Regardless of her past, Kenzi’s future goal is simple: To do whatever she can to protect Bo from a world that will never understand her as well as Kenzi does.
Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) is Bo’s mysterious and sexy Light Fae love interest. He’s also her first lover to ever survive a night with her. He works undercover for his people as a “human” homicide detective and helps to keep the existence of the Fae a secret where he can. His desire to protect Bo is often at odds with the whims of his Fae superiors, complicating his life, and their romantic relationship. A lone wolf at heart, Dyson hates how in love he is with Bo, and resists it as long as he can. The palpable sexual tension between them makes the moments when they do have sex extremely passionate as the duo fight for dominance in and out of bed, but the biggest surprise for them both is the deeper feelings they begin to develop — and how far Dyson is willing to go to save Bo.
In the human world, Hale (K.C. Collins) is a detective and Dyson’s partner on the force. In the Fae world, he’s a handsome male “Siren” who’s capable of swaying others with his beautiful voice. He’s the eternal bachelor and the ultimate wingman, never afraid to flirt with the ugly girl at the bar so you can go home with her hot friend. A talented cop, Zen and charming, Hale’s greatest strength is understanding politics. He does his best to protect impatient Dyson from getting himself in trouble with their human or Fae bosses. It’s an impossible task, and gets even tougher when Bo arrives on the scene.
Trick (Rick Howland) is the mysterious old owner and bartender of The Dal Riata tavern. It’s a “way station” that serves as neutral territory for the local Fae, and where all traveling Fae must check in and make their allegiances known. Politically savvy (if not also politically ambitious), Trick is additionally a secret confidante and mentor of Dyson’s. He’s also the guardian of secret, particular knowledge of Bo’s true origins. Until he’s sure he can trust her, he’s determined to keep Bo from finding out the truth about who she really is. But the longer he spends with Bo, the more protective Trick seems.
The childhood of Lauren (Zoie Palmer) was very different than Bo’s. Growing up in an upper middle class household, she is much more cultured and graceful. Lauren is in The Ash’s service working as a scientist, and studies life forms that many humans will never know even exist (like Bo). Lauren offers her medical knowledge to Bo to help gain control of her hungers and protect her from the Fae punishments. This gesture from Lauren, which poses a risk to herself, is what convinces Bo that Lauren is pure-hearted, while Dyson and Kenzi are both skeptical. While helping Bo, Lauren’s true intentions are to give The Ash more information about Bo and to understand her origins. Lauren develops true feelings for Bo as their relationship continues and this makes it harder and harder for Lauren to lie.
