Em (エム) is an Empusa that appears in Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Online.
She joins the liminal exchange program to become one of many potential homestay boarders for the player to host.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Em is a woman of slim build, her arms (of which there are four; two humanoid and two "mantoid") are covered in a green carapace. Her buttocks-length hair (which is styled with miniature twintails resembling mantoid antenna) and compound eyes are a matching shade of green. Possibly as part of her attempt to appear aggressive, Em wears an orange tiger-stripe monokini with fishnet stockings and knee-high boots.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Despite exhibiting a strong and aggressive façade, Em is actually extremely timid, sensitive and self conscious. She is studying abroad in an attempt to become braver.
While she has blood transfusion packs to eat as provided by the government, Em hates their taste and prefers the taste of blood from living beings. To that end she secretly desires to drink the blood of her homestay host while they sleep.
As she can manipulate dreams, Em attempts to ensure that her homestay host always has pleasant dreams, despite her specialty being to create nightmares.
Skills and Traits[edit | edit source]
- Empusa Physiology:
- Dream Manipulation: Empusas can manipulate the dreams of sleeping individuals.
- Temperature Sensitivity: Due to their Arthropod nature, Empusas are very sensitive to both high and low temperatures. Higher heat or cold that beings like humans or Centaurs would still be comfortable with would already be too extreme for an Empusa. Due to this, they cannot tolerate hot baths or snow very well. While it's unknown if they are cold blooded, Empusas will enter hibernation if the surrounding temperature is too low.
- Blood Diet: An Empusa's digestive system is underdeveloped and can only digest liquids. She therefore has to drink blood for nourishment.
