The important thing here is that none of the options are homebrew.
Race: Changeling, for at-will polymorph access
Class: Wizard (Mage), Enchantment and Illusion schools.
Background: Anything with a benefit to grant a language of my choice, which is spent on/retrained into Supernal at level 2
Theme: Devil's Pawn, for lots of obvious Devil flavour, the "innate" resist fire 10 succubi are supposed to have, and a very flavourful U10.
Feat: Elan Heritage, for the Immortal origin (and as a Wizard, can't complain about an encounter power to reduce damage by my int mod)
Feat: Arcane Familiar, score myself a Hurrum to never need sleep and a bonus to my disguise.
As far as I'm aware, there's no affordable way to get at-will flight in heroic short of being a Pixie or Hengeyokai, so that'll have to be fluffed away until the level 10 theme utility; I need polymorphing more than I need early flight, considering I'll most likely be in disguise most of the time and can't really excuse flying around anyway.
Due to the wording I doubt it, but if I took Pact Initiate (infernal), could I benefit from the rider on sustaining the theme's U10, or does that only apply to actual infernal pact warlocks?
Are you aware that only those beings able to naturally speak Supernal can be understood by everyone? Picking up the language through the means available to PCs only lets you speak Supernal, it doesn't bestow the ability to be understood by anyone... Lacking the ability to communicate with everyone, it might be more thematically appropriate to take Abyssal instead.
And no, the Pact Initiate feat only gives you the at-will power from the pact and the ability to pursue paragon paths that require the Infernal pact. (The relevant language being "Choose a pact. You gain X benefits from that pact..." rather than being something along the lines of "You gain the X pact.")
As of Monster Manual 3, being an immortal fluent in Supernal is enough:
Supernal: An immortal creature that has the Supernal language can understand speech and writing in any language. In addition, when an immortal speaks Supernal, it can choose to speak so that any creature that understands language can understand it. A nonimmortal that has the Supernal language can read writing in Supernal and can understand an immortal speaking Supernal, regardless of whether the immortal wants to be understood.
Even if my DM vetos this use of immortal origin/Supernal for a player character, Succubi speak Supernal, so this character is going to know it.
And in any case, Elan Heritage is granting me telepathy, so it's not so far a stretch to just let me vocalize it, although it would still keep me out of written languages.
background; Scholar, gives you a free language, then another one at lvl 5, and then RAI basickly every comminish language at 10
also free skill training is alaways fun.
Considered that too, but couldn't find any way to get my at-will polymorphing going on.
Even the rituals for a similar effect are only illusions, not actual transformation.
When I think succubus, I think domination. And one of the easiest ways to get an encounter dominate is to be a druid. Now, there are many druids, but I like the protector in this case. If you want to further the shape shifting theme, a wildshape works equally well.
The flavor actually fits fairly well with only slight refluffing. If you like the image of a whip-wielding succubus, you have the Thorn Whip at-will right there. Did I say Thorn Whip? I meant Diabolic Hell Whip! For the other at-will you could take Grasping Tide, which of course is spectral arms (or undead or something) coming out of the ground to hinder the enemies. Nature's Growth receives similar treatment.
Summons are easy. The Pack Wolf becomes a Hell Hound, and the Grizzly Bear becomes a... hell... bear... or something. At level 7 you of course pick up Charm Beast.
The problem is that the druid's main ability is Wisdom. Maybe you can persuade/beg/bribe your DM into letting you use Charisma instead. Dirty Trick: If they let you do that, pick Eagle's Splendor and giggle maniacally. Otherwise you can go with Camouflage Cloak to turn yourself invisible, which I could see a succubus being capable of.
Lastly, I personally wouldn't waste a feat on improving your vision. Embers of Divinity gives you slotless always-on low-light vision. It is pretty expensive, though.
Aha, found something; the Hurrum familiar.
Emulates devils not caring about sleep and gives me a boost to my disguise in active mode. (a penalty to their insight/perception, anyway)
