That smile says it all. YOU ARE MY BITICH NOW!
How 'supernatural' is Valochar, anyway? What sort of powers does her ancestry grant her?
she's a succubus my boy. read Lighter Chains vol. 2 for her powers
She is part succubus, which gives her certain powers over men. Through sex, she is able to drain their life force and use it to bolster her own strength and will. She can also influence, and even enter, their dreams.
She does not have any direct ability to cast spells, but her natural abilities give her quite a leg up on using magical artifacts. Her mild psychic ability and experience manipulating men make it easy for her to the weak points that a transformation spell needs to take hold.
So can we take that to mean that Allison still 'counts' as an man for magical purposes? Or are her powers simply posseses of a measure of flexibility as to their victims? Is her size related to her powers, or are demons just naturally huge? Also, will we see again the statuesque fellow that called on Mistress when she was out last chapter? What's his deal? Heh, did he used to be a woman?
>So can we take that to mean that Allison still 'counts' as an man for magical purposes?
She has some residual male energy that is slowly being worked out of her. Note how soundly she slept after giving in to her physical desires.
>Is her size related to her powers, or are demons just naturally huge?
Alison is ~5"1" and barefoot. Mistress is 5'10" and tends to wear high heels. She is not supernaturally large, but her physique may be influenced by how much she "feeds".
>will we see again the statuesque fellow that called on Mistress when she was out last chapter?
He'll be around.
>What's his deal?
Heh, he's mainly a prop for Alison to interact with.
>Heh, did he used to be a woman?
Ah, I had assumed the sleep and strong reaction to her release was at least in part Mistress helping things along a bit with her powers. That purple lighting effect seemed atad suspicious. A sort of operand conditioning. And that the 'coincidental' run in with the man was another part of her slow training. Just a little taste of being near a man. Oh, he accidentally bumped into her... Just enough contact for her to appreciate his size and mass... Get the transformation instincts kicking in. And shortly after they're helped along by a further boundry push.
