"Priestess, we seek an audience."
Rising from her knees before the massive stature of Goddess Eris and brushing the remnants of dust from her silken robes of white, High Priestess Erin came into the room. Sitting across from the fountains was a lovely couple, young adults and the female swollen at the stomach. Not doubt they had come for a Blessing service. A common duty of the High Priestess, although it's rather rare for the servants of Eris to be contacted for such a task. Although some people in Greece believe if the Goddess of Chaos and Discord blesses your child, that the unborn life shall be protected from harm. A hypocritical belief.
Still Erin provided the service without protest. Her dainty hands hovered closely above the mother's stomach, whispering a prayer in Ancient Greek, a language hidden from public knowledge. As the ceremony ended, Eris offered the couple a bag of Pomegranates for vitality.
The pregnant mother happily accepted, blessing the Priestess with gratitude.
"Thank you, High Priestess!"
Eris sighed, nodding in silence.
When the couple started to leave the temple and Eris was finally left to her own she sighed heavily, eyes falling shut as she tried to gather herself. Practicing these human rituals was disgusting for her. Humans were not her kind. They were nothing. Are nothing to her but vermin. Something to be played with and killed. Such were the thoughts of a Succubus. Her own kind, those on Tempion were cruel, they banished her to a position on Earth where she would be forced to remain celibate. A sadistic manner of punishment.
Eris returned to her private room, drawing the curtains and finally shed the layers of robes mandated by the temple elders who supervised her practices. Standing bare and naked before the mirror in her room, Eris saw the imperfections of this human body. Although blessed with flawless skin, golden-amber eyes, lovely blond hair and a figure befitting sexuality...Eris felt wrong. The absence of her horns, wings and tail constantly reminding her of the banishment. She was forced to be human. None of her powers were accessible nor was her true form.
She was trapped within a human vessel for all eternity.
All because she mated with a Tempion elder and bore his child. Laws were never easy for her to observe.

Night fell on Greece, the sisters of Eris's temple retiring for rest, but Eris remained awake. Her physical body may be human, but not her mind. Still able to function on only an hours worth of rest each night and constantly thinking of her Alien kind up in the skies. Planet Tempion was visible from Earth, if you knew what to look for. A beautifully dark planet, surrounded by rings of light and five moons. Eris wanted so badly to return.
Suddenly the skies above her room glowed brightly, a strange sound filtering inside her walls and echoing loudly. A beautiful noise. So...Alien.
Eris quickly grabbed a black towel from her bathroom, tied it at her chest and jumped out the window.
"Perhaps my people have returned for me!" She continued running till the destination arrived just outside of Athens.
