Imps

When exhaust from the magical energies of Hell escapes into the caverns of Burrowgatory, it can coalesce into a fascimile of a living creature. These strange beings are known as imps.

Imps look and act much like animals, but they do not need to eat or sleep, and cannot reproduce. They dissipate into a smog-like substance if killed, but do not appear to die of natural causes. Imps cannot retain harm such as scars, nicks, or other injuries-- any harm they take will heal shortly, unless it is enough to make them dissipate. They cannot be farmed for feathers, fur, or meat, as anything they shed will disappear!

Most imps are only a few inches tall, with the largest ones still being smaller than a succubun in bun form. Imps cannot be ridden or used for labor much heavier than a house cat or small dog.

Though imps do not need to eat, they love to consume succubun food. However, as they're not built to ingest it, doing so can have strange effects on their physical forms—especially sugary foods. Imps do not have mouths, and always seem to injest food anytime their owner looks away. They do tend to put their faces near food though!

Imps were once widely considered pests in Burrowgatory due to their tendency to harass succubuns, steal food, and cause other disruptions... However, since imp taming methods caught on, they've become beloved pets and companions to many succubuns.

Hutch is the leading expert on imps in Burrowgatory, and devotes all their time to further the understanding of the strange creatures. They own the Imporium, where succubuns can go to adopt new companions.

Quince is the hottest innovator in the world of imp raising, and feeds her imps fantastical treats to transform them into the unique pedigree imps she sells at Pedigree Pets.

 

 

Imps are pets that you can attach to your succubuns. Any time you depict one of your succubuns with their attached imp in a piece of art or writing, you can gain an extra 2 carats.
To claim a carat bonus, imps must be drawn as they exist canonically on the website. You may add small accessories to art of your imps to give them personality, but may not remove or change features/colors.
You can view all the currently existing types of imps in the Encyclopedia, and all existing colors in the pet color page!

Standard imps are permanently available in the Imporium

Event imps can be obtained through limited events. Some cycle back yearly, and others are more rare.

Pedigree imps are voted on by Succubuns' patrons, and are available at Pedigree Pets for four months each before cycling out.

Imps can be fed dango or mochi obtained from Dan's Dango or events to change their color. To view all the colors available for a specific type of imp, click the View Colors button on their entry in the Encyclopedia.

Imps can be bonded with daily provided they are named and attached to a succubun. To bond, go to the succubun's profile, and then the menagerie on the right side of the page! As your affection with an imp grows, you'll be awarded special items, sometimes changing depending on the imp species!

To change an imp's color, simply go to your pets page, and select the pet. Then chose the "Change Variant" section and select a mochi item from there. You must have the mochi in your inventory to use it.
