For a more in-depth history of Morrigan Aenslaed, see Morrigan Aenslaed (extended). [contains spoilers]

Born somewhere in Scotland in 1678, Morrigan Aenslaed takes her name from an ancient queen of that country. A curvaceous and voluptuous green-haired succubus, she's the daughter of Berial, a Demon King who's the ruler of Makai (the Demon World). Though she is to be the next ruler of Makai in the event of Berial's death, Morrigan has been living a carefree and fun-filled life, and sees no reason to change this by becoming the master of the Aenslaed family. And so, it's no surprise that when Berial does pass on, the throne remains empty, and the Aenslaed family is left masterless. After all, taking up the throne means an end to her frivolity, and that's something she's not ready to give up just yet.

Unlike the other Darkstalkers, Morrigan has no agenda or quest. She fights merely to stave off boredom by going toe-to-toe with the other creatures of the night. In her fights, Morrigan uses her dark powers to assault her opponents with energy and her body. She also uses the actual bats that make up parts of her revealing outfit by making them form various deadly shapes like drills and blades. All these, coupled with her suggestive attire and mannerisms, add up to a powerful fighter.

But while she doesn't have much in the way of plans, could there be others who have plans for her?
