Morrigan Aensland (Japanese: モリガン・アーンスランド Hepburn: Morigan Ānsurando) is the main protagonist of Capcom's Darkstalkers series. Making her first appearance in Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors in 1994, she has since appeared in every game in the series and in various related media and merchandise, as well as in multiple video games outside the Darkstalkers line, including in most entries in both Marvel vs. Capcom and SNK vs. Capcom. In the series, she is a succubus and a powerful princess (later queen) of the demon realm Makai, who is very vain and lives for little more than the excitement of battle, but slowly takes up more of her royal responsibilities seriously despite her obsessive fascination with the human world. She has a sister-like split part named Lilith and a rival in Demitri Maximoff, and her moveset is reminiscent of Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter. She is central to the extended Darkstalkers franchise and is widely perceived as one of the most iconic Capcom characters as well as one of the most popular female characters in video gaming.
