Lilim of Disease: Anyone successfully resisting a Geas from these demons must immediately make a Strength +2 roll: if they fail, he or she comes down with a common, contagious and airborne disease of the Lilim's choice. This disease may be treated normally.

Demon of the Flu: as Demon of the Flu, Yumiko may either give someone the flu, or take it away. Taking it away is considered filling a Need, even if Yumiko is the one that gave the person the flu in the first place...

Rites: Malphas' basic one.

Special Rites: Give a person the flu (usable twice per day)

Geas: Malphas/3

Yumiko was just as happy to see her old Prince die: Makatiel was far too interested in killing off humanity to make his Lilim really comfortable about working for him. Since then, she's lived the life of a Free Lilim, steadily buying her way out of debt and using her status as a Word-bound to land choice assignments. In her time, she's worked for Lust, Theft, Dark Humor, Greed, and is now starting to finish up a long-term position with Factions. She's been offered another contract there, though, and Yumiko certainly likes the work environment, so she might sign on again.

Currently, Malphas uses her as a Typhoid Mary. In her Role as a hotshot young corporate troubleshooter, Yumiko gets to infiltrate various office surroundings - and then send them all home sick. Doesn't sound too dire? Try running a company fighting off a corporate takeover when half your staff can't get out of bed. Also, by selectively choosing her targets, the demon can set things up so that someone already waiting for the chance to indulge in a little backstabbing gets the opportunity to do so. That gives her a Geas-hook, plus the one she gets for anonymously 'curing' the person just in time to let him or her retaliate, and then from there it's just a few small steps to getting half a business fighting the other half. Malphas finds her very useful, indeed.

Yumiko herself is, well, best described by a five-letter word that isn't politically correct to use these days. The Lilim has an almost Habbalite attitude towards mortals: she finds humans fairly smelly, atrociously weak, and ready to snivel (or sniffle) at the drop of a hat. She doesn't really consider anything that she does to be actually wrong, per se: in Yumiko's experience, the conniving and betrayals that follow in her wake would probably have happened soon enough, anyway. She might as well make a profit on the deal: that way, the humans are benefiting someone with their antics. They certainly aren't benefiting themselves.
