Kate Kitaen's landlady, Ms. Fallon (as she is known to her tenants) is one of the many succubae who have opted out of the endless Dreamland War between the fiends and celestials, choosing to set up shop on Earth and live a quiet life among the humans. Or as quiet as a succubus ever gets, anyway.
Ms. Fallon normally appears as a woman in her late 40s, one of those
lucky few whose grace and beauty have remained extraordinarily
well-preserved. Her clothes bare very little skin, and she keeps her
hair done up in a matronly fashion, but her outfits are always clingy
enough to leave no doubts about the perfect body underneath.
Ms. Fallon's apartment building extends from The Street up to the first level
of skyways -- lower to lower-middle income housing. Kate could afford
something a little better, but she's saving up for a down payment on a place
of her own. Ms. Fallon and her staff keep the place clean and in good repair,
and while the appointments are relatively humble they are all in good shape.
The local street gangs know who owns the place -- and know well enough to stay
away, unless they're coming for an "appointment" with Ms. Fallon or
one of her associates -- so the place is never attacked or looted unless a rogue
group wanders into the area. Such urban raiders are generally given a welcome
that those few who escape will not soon forget.
Ms. Fallon's residents are mostly young human
or Plane-touched men and women who are
new to the City or otherwise trying to work their way up from The Street. A
few retired folks and a couple of single mothers round out the mix. Ms. Fallon
is, in a word, motherly with her tenants, always willing to provide a
listening ear and some sage advice, not to mention a shoulder
to cry on. She does not push her tenants into letting her "feed" off
of them -- she does most of her hunting on The Street and in the nightclubs,
using any of a wide variety of attractive forms to catch the eyes of men of
all ages. Nevertheless, if one of her tenants is short on cash and unable to
pay the rent for a given month, she is more than willing to work out an alternate
means of payment. Often these unemployed young men (or women) can more easily
spare the 24-hour period of unconsciousness after her "feeding" than
they can the cash for the rent, and Ms. Fallon's "flexible payment plan"
is one more reason why her apartment attracts the unfortunate and down-and-out.
Kate loves Ms. Fallon dearly and has adopted her as a surrogate mother-figure
now that she has moved away from home. Kate had some rough experiences with
her first few landlords when she came to the City, and she found her way to
Ms. Fallon's place after about three months of hell. That was five years ago,
and Kate has never once regretted her decision. She was a little wigged out
when she found out that the landlady was a succubus, but by that time she had
been staying at the apartment for a little over a year and the two had become
very close. She decided that, fiend or not, Ms. Fallon was one of the good guys,
and she was worthy of the trust that Kate had placed in her. Ms. Fallon has
proven faithful to that trust ever since.
Ms. Fallon only needs to feed on other people about once a week, though if
the opportunity presents itself more often she'll gladly take it; she goes out
hunting about every other night.. Despite the fact that she doesn't need it
to live, Ms. Fallon is also a big fan of human foods. She enjoys cooking
and baking, and often prepares food for her tenants and staff members. Her
staff is a group of six maids (four succubae and two tieflings)
and four groundskeepers/repairmen (two tieflings, a lutin
and an incubus). All of them are generally hard-working, polite and
well-behaved, though the incubus and succubae will never miss an opportunity
to offer their "services" to one of the tenants or anyone else that
enters the apartment complex. Ms. Fallon has a strict policy, though, that her
employees are not to feed on delivery personnel while they're on duty -- a failure
to complete one's rounds would be hard for anyone to explain, and might make
it difficult to persuade the company to make deliveries to the apartments in
Ms. Fallon is 420 years old in 1999 CR, and has been living on Earth for the last 200 years or so; before that she was in the Dreamlands. She has 387 children, all of them out on their own now, and thousands of grandchildren -- she lost count a long, long time ago. She has raised many of her children on Earth, with them living as mortal children until they reached puberty, so she knows more than a little about parenting (not to mention single parenting). These days she uses magical birth control to suppress her natural succubus fertility -- she has had enough of motherhood for now, and plans to take a good, long break from it.
