These beautiful women were once highly lustful in life, in death they are the personification of uncontrollable lust. They are the servants of Queen Cleopatra. Dante first encounters them within The Tower. The Seductress is a variant of the Temptress as her hair is up whilst the Temptress's hair is down. Regardless of the change in hairstyle she is the same as a temptress but has the ability to draw the player towards them.
Once a human woman, the Temptress is humanoid in shape, being very voluptuous from breasts to hips to buttocks: the ideal of the female form. However, she has been corrupted fully by the sin of Lust and is now merely a grey-skinned demonic slave to her own carnal desire. What little clothing she wears is a ripped shawl lazily draped around her legs with gold bracelets decorating her limbs and which are now permanently fused to her skin. She frequently moans in a sexual manner, but gives off cat-like screeches when on the attack. They attack with metal claws or with a long, retractable, scorpion-like tendril protruding from a blood spewing opening from the sternum to the navel down to the vagina, seemingly an unholy fusion of their corrupted genitals. The torso-spanning opening greatly resembles what was once a female vulva, while the inside resembles a vagina and the tendril a human (albeit pointed and barbed) phallus, truly a manifestation of the corruption in both types of human genitalia. These creatures are easily spotted in their crouched positions and stay close to the ground as they attack, moaning every so often and fondling themselves seductively in order to lower Dante's guard, seemingly coming to orgasm at the slightest touch that they give themselves.
They can dodge almost all of Dante's strikes with their swift speed. They will stop periodically to writhe and moan in pleasure, seemingly unable to move without involuntary sexual release every so often. This action is a precursor to a medium ranged attach where a tendril shoots forward from their vagina, either to directly attack the player or to grab them (initiating a quick time event). A quick tapping of the Cross button will cancel the attack allowing Dante to grab the tendril and spin the Seductress around and throw her to a safe distance. The seductress can send a beam that lures the player towards them.
