The power to use the abilities of cambions. Variation of Mythic Physiology and Hybrid Physiology. Demonic counterpart of Nephilim Physiology.

Also Called

  • Cambion Mimicry
  • Demi/Half-Demon Mimicry/Physiology
  • Homo Daemonium Physiology


User with this ability either is or can transform into a Cambion: a being (most commonly one of the first generation) with human and demonic ancestry. As partially mortal they are more bound to their form than their non-mortal parent, but their personalities and minds are far less defined by their spiritual aspect. In some forms of media, Cambions are shown to be equal or higher in power than full demons, this is generally explained with the claim that the human soul enhances the spiritual/demonic power gained from their "parent".

The combination of mortal and physical with immortal and immaterial is highly unpredictable, and someone with heritage from both sides can lean on either side of their ancestry. Thus cambions can be divided into three broad groups:

Near-Mortal Cambion: favors their mortal parents or are more distant descendants. They are mostly similar to their mortal kind in both mind and body, but with some additional abilities and instincts. Outwardly there are few or no indications that the individual is anything but normal.

Balanced Cambion: is balanced between their heritages, if sometimes rather precariously, and have both free will and a good amount of power. There are likely a number of definite traits and instincts that draw them toward their inhuman side. Physically they tend to have at least a few indications about their non-mortal parentage, but the amount varies greatly between individuals.

Near-Demonic Cambion: favors their immortal parentage or have only a minor amount of mortal blood. Physically and mentally they are close to their immortal parentage, although able to resist their instinctual traits better than their parent.
