Story[edit | edit source]

A powerful and strange succubus who holds a major fragment, the only female Incubus "King". In the first meeting with the group, she seems quite ruthless, as per her actions toward Simon, but her current nature remains unclear.[3]

Her salute "Hey boys. Are you ready for this dance?" to her colleagues is a good show of her style: provocative, ironic, and sexy at the same time.

During the Gathering, as the new Incubus King is her vassal, the party acts in various occasions as her own personal errand runners, but she can be quite generous in her rewards if you serve her well. Although the kindness or the well-being doesn't seem to be in a high position among her priorities, she seems neither to be the type to go out of her way to inflict pain, humiliation or other nasty things for the sake of it.

Although she is one of the most powerful beings among the IK, she doesn't consider herself above the games of cloak and dagger. In total contrast with the transparency of Xerces, she uses the group's services to contact indirectly with the Queen of Ghenalon to establish trade relations. She seems to have a strong interest in courting her, because later, she rigs her own activity just to give Ghenalon a clear win. If that fact, helps to put her ahead of others or even if it helps her cause is unknown for now.

She seems to have a very deep knowledge of the Succubi's machinations to allow the free circulation between the different domains of both Succubi and Orcs.

During Simon's route, we are treated to a much more in-depth overview of her history and motivations. At first, she seems to fit the role of a powerful, uncaring dominant but appearances can be deceiving as you will see later. If you take the time to know her better, you will find a lonely, scared lady that has no companions or a powerful second-in-command (as some others Incubus Kings have) because of her own isolation and distrust.

We are also given her daughter, Nalili, to train and guide, not by an act of uncaring selfishness but because she cares. (Although as it happens in many other cases, the generation gap between them makes more difficult to Esthera to show it, among other reasons of course.) One interesting fact that it's revealed only after her return from the Gathering is her vulnerability, her regrets about past mistakes and she no longer can't take the risk to have sexual relations with Simon any more. The interactions between the shards could be messy...

I wanted an empire, at first. I just wanted to make things better than they were.
— Esthera

Before and during the Third Arclent War, she behaves like a loyal ally even when she has the chance to grab more power for herself.

Relationship points[edit | edit source]

Maximum affection is 100, at which you can have a conversation with the harem girl that will lock her affection there.

Note: After the Second Gathering the role of Esthera's RP is taken over by Orgasmic Empire country score with it dictating, on demand sex scenes and checks that would usually be RP checks.

Base value: 10

  • Up to +50 for 10 affection per 5 Esthera mood points (this determines her base value).
  • +5 for getting the Office Orgy sex scene.
  • Up to +9 for the Nalili maturity score score at the end of Simon's route.
  • +5 for having Dari's best evaluation about the Battle for Yhilin "Sounds like the battle went great overall!".

  • +3 low collateral damage across the continent upon reaching Conference Chamber in the war aftermath. (No definite telltale for achieving this, unfortunately, but Sarai's presence indicates failure.)
  • +2 conversation via comm sphere in HQ bedroom.
  • +3 talking to her after the Extradimensional HQ meeting, during the first Erosian conflict.
  • +2 talking to her in Order of Thaumaturgy Guildhall, during the aftermath of the first Erosian conflict.

  • +2 chatting with her during the second Stenai trip.
  • +5 for sending troops early in Stenai, OR -5 for holding back.
  • +5 finishing the exploration of the New Givini ruins in one go.
  • +5 for choosing the Orgasmic Empire for expanding airship trade.
  • +3 for pacifying Ginasta with a spell, OR -2 for fighting her personally.

We're relatively near and we have solid knowledge of her shields.", or "Our position could be worse. We'll have to fight our way in, but we have some knowledge of her shields." OR +3 if comment is "Our position isn't strong, but we've at least learned a little about her shields."

Maximum legit value: 100 (+63 leeway)

Esthera mood points[edit | edit source]

During Simon's route, Empress Esthera has a hidden "mood" score. Raising it affects her affection score[4] and unlocks certain events. In general, you want to speak to her often, pick conversation options she responds non-negatively to, treat Chaya gently, assist the palace bureaucrats, and raise Nalili's maturity.

Base value: 1.

  • +1 for saying hello to Chaya, OR -1 for grabbing Chaya.
  • +1 for asking Chaya for books (recommended), OR -1 for responding "Just yourself".
  • +1 for responding her "My pleasure", OR -1 for "If you insist" or "I live to serve".
  • +1 for helping Chaya move heavy stuff.
  • +1 for helping Chaya shop.
  • +4 for refusing to help Chaya escape, OR +1 for offering your help.
  • Up to +4 for sharing your thoughts on seeing the Empire after being let out of her room.[5][6]
  • +1 for responding her "Let's do it!" or "Decline" to entertainment idea, OR -1 for responding "...", OR -2 for "That's horrible!".[6]
  • -1 for trying the stairs to Nalili's room after being warned.
  • +1 for asking Nalili's room guard "Who are you?", OR -1 for "What's up there?".
  • +1 for finding all 5 office workers then talking to their boss.
  • +1 for having the best evaluation from the planning succubus "You're like some kind of route-planning genius!".[7]
  • +1 for having the best evaluation from the meetings succubus "Well, fuck me! Everybody did exactly what you wanted...".[8]
  • +1 for having the best evaluation from the accounting succubus "I'll try even harder in the future!".[9]
  • +1 for opening the box in Empress's room on day 20.
  • -1 for sleeping and getting the Wendis dream.
  • +5 for talking to her after Wendis dream and starting with "...", OR +3 for "Want to talk about the dream?" or "Stay out of my head".
  • +2 for immediately truthfully answering her when she asks about Simon's children, OR +1 for saying nothing initially.
  • +1 for talking to her about Nalili by Nalili's room IF Nalili maturity score is at least 2.
  • +1 for enslaving the smugglers.
  • +1 for participating in the succubus meeting on the 2nd floor while she is at the Gathering.
  • +2 for talking to her by the vault near the end of Simon's route.

Maximum legit value: 32
(There's no benefit past 25 which means you can botch the previously mentioned hidden variables and still optimize this.)

Final warning: Above all else, do not defeat the elite in the fighting ring without following Nalili's idea and learning Dominate first. This removes all her maturity, drops Esthera's mood by 10, and for some reason adds 10 to Simon's daycount (an epic 10-day battle...?). It's hard to do without burning thru restoratives anyway. This is because the game considers that you must have cheated to achieve this result.
