The existence and job description of Quoriel highlights Hell's perennial problem: to wit, that its most powerful denizens have a real difficulty with cooperation, even when it's in everyone's best interest.

Simply put, Hatiphas needs succubi and incubi in order to do her job properly. Way too many sorcerers are in it (at least at first) for the chance to summon up demons that will show them dark and twisted carnal pleasures beyond mortal ken - and if you think that she's going to personally oblige the talking monkeys, well, think again. The sensible thing to do would be to whistle up a few Servitors of Lust, but political considerations make that impossible (defining 'political' as 'Kronos and Andrealphus don't like each other', of course).

Thus, the Demoness of Sorcery has had to develop her own in-house talent, as it were. Needless to say, this has led to some interesting situations: Servitors of Andrealphus tend to laugh nastily at the idea that anyone under Kronos could be even remotely competent at this sort of thing. For their part, those demons serving Fate in this fashion tend to reciprocate the antipathy: to them, sex is just another tool. You don't base your life around tools (well, unless you're a Djinn). This conflict usually simmers under the surface. Usually.

Quoriel is a fairly good example of one of Hatiphas' mid-level operatives. She usually deals with Sorcerers at the very beginning of their careers, before they learn (those that do) to be careful about revealing their Needs. She's also not too bad at recruiting: Hatiphas will sometimes have her set up in some fringe of the occult scene where the Lilim can pick out humans with the right qualifications. Once she finds one, she recruits him and her through fairly direct methods. It's amazing, really: you can tell them - Hell, show them - that you're a demon, and they'll still jump into bed with you. Quoriel recognizes that human beings aren't too bright, but surely they must think some things through, right?

As the above might suggest, Quoriel does not have a stellar opinion of humanity: hardly surprising for a demon that serves Fate, of course, but nonetheless notable for it's utter callousness. From the Lilim's point of view, humans seem to have no better aim in life than to throw themselves on somebody's sword: it might as well be hers.

Metaphorically speaking, of course.
