Scaled Fist Monk 1 adds Charisma to your AC.
Sensei Monk 2 adds Charisma to attacks with unarmed strikes and monk weapons.
Technically the two can't be taken together, since Scaled Fist modifies the bonus feat list and Sensei replaces it, but if your GM is lenient you might be able to make it work.
Sensei also gives you a mini-bard with Inspire Competence and Inspire Courage too.
Yeah, scaled fist would be helpful, though currently its Chaotic Evil so a bit of an issue for taking monk levels.
A fun thing to do would be to Atone it to Lawful Good, and then turn it into a Sacred Shield Paladin
Sacred Shield turns smite evil into an untyped 50% damage reduction bonus if the smitten enemy hits someone close to the paladin that isn't the paladin itself, a huge combat buff.
In effect, the succubus is taking the hits for you to atone for all it past misdeeds. They get their Cha to AC, get to weird fullplate and heavy shields, which should mean AC through the roof.
Meanwhile you get their shield bonus to your AC too.
Because it is a paladin, it also get +Cha to saves which is neat.
With the bracers item whose name I forget you can do it 3x/day, which should be plenty.
Yeah, wouldn't make much sense though as we're a an almost entirely evil party.
Although it is a bit of an obscure rule, Undead Barbarians are a thing. Back in the early days of PFS, developers unloaded Ghoul/Ghast Barbarians, Skeletal Champion Barbarians, and more at the PFS players. When these players started to cry foul on this, the developers eventually created a rule, which can be found in a stat block of the Vampire Savage published in the Monster Codex:Vampire Savage wrote:Undead Barbarian: An undead creature with the ability to enter a rage gains the morale bonuses from rage despite being immune to morale effects. The bonus to Constitution from the rage applies to an undead creature’s Charisma instead.
So, undead seem to be able to go into rage, apparently gaining this ability in the process. So an Vampire Bloodrager should be possible. Bard on the other hand is a bit less useful (in case of trying to self-buff), as Inspire Courage is a Mind-affecting effect.
I'll check with my GM to see if that might work

And the final issue is if i'm almost 100% certain this thing will never actually land a hit because we're generally up against things with 44+ ACs, and this won't have nearly enough wealth to even think about closing that gap.I think with 5 levels of antipaladin and weapon finesse (because it just gets that for being a succubus) i managed to reach a +18 to hit. and NPC wealth (considering this is 27k gp vs the 315k gp wealth between it and a real character).
Totally want to do that, unfortunately we just ran into a mage's disjuction trap that obliterated half our party's wealth, so most of our gold is going towards damage control.
