Shamira, a nascent demon lord, is the most senior and most powerful of the succubi and incubi that inhabit the Midnight Isles, the Abyssal realm of Nocticula. She also rules the Midnight Isle of Alinythia and the Porphyry City of Alushinyrra.
Shamira's aim and portfolio is to entice pure souls to fall to their lustful desires; she is known to frequent the Material Plane in order to fulfil this goal. Sometimes, Shamira impersonates a priestess of a god of the Upper Planes to facilitate the seduction and its corruption of the goodly soul.
Shamira rules the city of Alushinyrra from the Harem of Burning Delights, a position which has granted her no small amount of influence. Prior to Nocticula's recent departure from the Abyss, she once relied on Shamira to govern the city on her behalf and inform her of any significant developments, before officially leaving Alushinyrra to her since her disappearance. The impact of this event is minimal, as Nocticula has never had a significant presence in Alushinyrra.
It is claimed, but sensibly never by Shamira herself, that only Shamira has ever successfully enticed Nocticula. Nevertheless, Nocticula and Shamira are lovers. While much is made of her role as Nocticula's lover, she is also the closest thing she has to a rival and, as such, Nocticula always keeps a close watch on Shamira, while Shamira in turn subtly attempts to erode Nocticula's power. More speculation exists around Shamira's parentage, with some believing her to be the daughter of Sarenrae; if this fact were true, it might explain the fascination Shamira seems to have for the Dawnflower and her faith. Further adding to the speculation of Shamira's origin, before the night she appeared in Nocticula's bedchamber (a feat that should have been impossible), there is none in the Abyss who can remember the distinctive demoness.
