Does she still exist in Starfinder? She's immortal so unless she got killed through violence it seems likely she is still alive. I wonder what has happened to her though. My guess is maybe after being CG long enough she turned into a unique Azata or something.


That's the route I'd go for with her. Then again: in the setting I've been working on-and-off on for years, I imply that a marilith became LG and ascended to divinity. So...that's exactly the sort of weird idea that appeals to me.

Absent other plausible options jumping out, I would tend to figure that after thousands of years, any random immortal probably has either ascended to outsider status or outright divinity. Assuming, natch, that they didn't otherwise get killed, or spent most of that time inactive.

She's already an outsider.

The long range outcome of almost all outsiders is to be destroyed and recycled, a vanishingly small proportion become (demi)gods. It's just a question of how many years (abyss), decades (maelstrom), or millenia (most others) it takes for your average outsider to get killed during interplanar warfare, expeditions to other planes, or other mishaps.

She certainly does become an ever more vital target after her redemption, and not just from her old acquaintances. If you're a powerful fiend, be it demon-prince, archdevil or otherwise, you can't afford to leave that possibility open, your underlings must know without a doubt that trying to escape their nature will be met with complete and utter annihilation. Should the idea somehow cross their mind.

That said, for the same reason, if she does survive long enough (and she has the skills fo it) ... she is already fairly powerful in Wrath, if she keeps growing, with the symbol she can be, she could be an asset to Desna. Herald material, maybe, should the big moth with the job in PF, whose names escapes me, bit it between the two eras.
Or even as an empyreal lord on her own. Not many of those are into the redemption thing as main focus, and the one I see who does could use a more pragmatic, active counterpart. For example.
I can think of a few goddesses who should be ready to help her on that path.

I don't known that I'd give her a celestial subtype though. I'd rather not, actually.
Keeping her as is might be better. Either as the one non-evil demon, or neither an azata/angel nor a demon anymore, just (good).


If she were an empyreal lord, what would her domains be?


Starfinder doesn't quite have domains, but probably along the lines of good, chaos, freedom and protection.


What with Return of the Runelords implying that Nocticula is going the redemption route as well (at least in CN territory), she could become her Herald.


Unlikely, she'd be deep in Desna's camp.

If anything she would be out trying to prevent the various other outsiders from interfering with new civilizations trying to reach the stars. Show them the good among the stars rather than let their ISS get smashed by an endbringer devil.

I do hasten to add that...

Wrath of the Righteous SPOILERS!:
...if you happen to have Arueshalae with you when you negotiate with Nocticula, she basically has no hard feelings about Arueshalae abandoning her for Desna, and is actually interested to see if she can pull this whole redemption thing off (most likely because it provides Nocticula data she can use when engineering her own ascencion from demonhood). She basically lets her go and says "Good luck, kid!"
