I am not an expert for 5E, but in older games succubi were demons and erinyes were devils.
The fact that the game plays ( partly ) in hell ( home of devils ) has no influence on the question if he made a pact with a demon or devil before.
First, the game may also lead us to abbys at some point.
Second, both demons and devils can have reasons to send a minion to hell to do something for them.
Third, the characters go to hell because they get kidnapped by Illithids. It is unclear if they want to go there or if they were send there for other reasons too.

Until now Larian has used the character design of the bestiary of the Wotc´s books so I assume they´re doing the same.

In there, Succubus have "bat" wings and Erinyes "Fallen Angel" wings, so I assume the very affectionate creature with Wyll is a Succubus, or a Cambion.

After reading this twitter I think maybe she´s a Cambion ( It seems alu-fiends are not in 5e anymore)

Looks great! That demon (devil?) up there gives me the creeps.
Very Games Michael

Cambion friends are best friends


IIRC Raphael is a cambion too. Maybe their plots are related?

Interestingly, the NPCs either have a pact or a "strange magic" within.

4e made Succubi Devils and 5e split the difference between the editions by making Succubi neither. And Raphel is a Cambion, which means he is half mortal and half fiend, but he isn't technically a devil althiugh one of his parents might be.

I have only read the PHB of 5E, so I have no info about monsters.

Just to be sure: devils are still lawful evil and obsessed with contracts, usually to sell souls while demons are still chaotic evil and they inspire others to give into whatever negative emotions they have without caring about anything, so they enjoy lust, hatred, greed, violence and so on.
