Heroine Overview

I sense a strong power gathering. Looks like tonight won't be so boring after all!
~ Morrigan.

Morrigan Aensland is the main protagonist of the Darkstalkers series. She may be a demon, but she is not evil. Demitri Maximoff originally was going to be the protagonist of the series, but due to her popularity, Morrigan took his place.

She also serves as one of the four mascots for Capcom (the other three mascots are Mega Man, Ryu and Captain Commando).

She is a succubus, a human demon with the power to steal the souls of those she seduces. However, unlike traditional succubus, Morrigan can sustain herself by secreting a special liquid when she is physical and mentally excited. She can also sustain herself by feeding off dreams and because of that she doesn't kill humans.

Morrigan is the youngest and adopted daughter of Belial Aensland, the ruler of the Makai Realm. When she was born, Morrigan was extremely powerful, so much so that Belial sealed away part of her power, one-third in himself to be returned upon his death, and one-third in a pocket dimension, which eventually became a being of its own, a younger succubus named Lilith. Unaware of Belial's action, Morrigan grew up and found her life in the Aensland castle dull, so she frequently visited the human world to look for entertainment.

Although she is a succubus, she is not really evil and has preformed some heroic acts, such as teaming up with both Marvel and Capcom heroes to defeating Onslaught, Abyss, Galactus, and Ultron Sigma/Ultron Omega, in the Marvel vs. Capcom series, in Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, Marvel vs, Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds/Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, though she escaped soon after. Also, she saved the world from Jedah.

In most of her appearances, including various crossovers, she was voiced by Yayoi Jinguji up until her appearance in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. In the English version of Cross Edge, she was voiced by Erin Fitzgerald.

In the cartoon, she was voiced by Saffron Henderson, and in the anime, Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge, based on the 1996 video game of the same name, she was voiced by Rei Sakuma in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Kathleen Barr in the English version of the anime. The former also voiced her in Gunbird 2 and the first Drama CD, and in future Drama CDs, she was voiced by Kikuko Inoue and Yumi Tōma.

For the rest of her appearances ever since 2011, she is voiced by Rie Tanaka in Japanese and by Siobhan Flynn in English, the former who also voiced the character in Project X Zone and its sequel.

Biography

Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors

Morrigan was born in 1968 in the human world, more presicely Scotland. There she was found by Belial Aensland, a dark creature that belonged to a group of supernatural monsters known as Darkstalkers. With no trace of her parents Morrigan was taken by the demonic being who dragged her to the Makai, home of the monsters known as Darkstalkers which consisted of every monster of folklore and stories: werewolves, mommies, vampires, zombies, succubi, etc. Belial decided to make Morrigan his heir to the throne of Makai knowing well that his time left was short and had two servants called Lucien and Mudo be Morrigan's caretakers during her childhood.

Morrigan was born with immeasurable power that would destroy her and Makai had Belial not splitted her soul in three parts. One part of her soul was kept inside the body of Belial himself whereas the other part was kept locked in secret from Morrigan herself. She grew up without knowing this and soon found her life in the castle bored, the succubus would then travel to the human world looking for fun and soon would become attached to the material world and the humans themselves.

Although she drained the life energy and dreams of humans during her travels to the human world Morrigan was careful to not kill humans, as she grew up genuinely fond of them during her visits and it was not necessary, as unlike traditional succubi Morrigan was able to feed on dreams and excitement alone. But soon even these visits would lose their fun, until she was drawn by an strange power in the human world which turned out to be Pyron, an evil alien who arrived at earth with the goal of consuming the planet. Morrigan saw this as an opportunity to have fun and fought Pyron, although the fire alien was ultimately defeated and killed by her father's biggest enemy, Demitri Maximov. Morrigan then returned to her castle, where she was informed that her father passed away and that she was chosen as queen of Makai.

Crosspedia Entry

The current head of the House of Aensland, one of the three noble houses of the Makai, Morrigan is also a succubus, an alluring demon who controls dreams in search of excitement and stimulation.

With the death of the Demon King Belial, the former head of the house and her guardian, she had no choice but to take up the position of the new head of the house. She becomes bored by a life in which others wait on her hand and foot, and soon reverts to a freer and more wanton way of living.

It is around that time that, along with the revival of Jedah, strange things start to occur in the Makai. Seeing this as a chance for more stimulation, she flies into battle in order to try and find fulfillment for her heart.

Her clothing and wings are actually made up of bats, and they can transform themselves into drills, blades and other weapons at her command.

Trivia

  • She strongly resembles Sothis from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
  • She and Chun-Li are partners in Project X Zone because they are the respective main heroines of the Darkstalkers and Street Fighter series and both are video game based on fighting.
  • Despite being mostly friendly Morrigan is portrayed as an evil monster in many Darkstalkers media. The recent adaptation doing so being the udon comics. In fact the complete staff of udon is not aware Morrigan is not evil.
