Tieflings are planetouched creatures native to Lemurias, mostly human, yet with the blood of demons, devils, or other evil outsiders in their veins. Also known colloquially (and somewhat pejoratively) as 'hades-spawn' or 'titanblooded', they are often distrusted and feared for this evil lineage.[1]

AppearanceEdit

Tieflings vary greatly in individual appearance from one another, depending not only on the ethnicity of the human parent, but the type of the fiendish parent. They can have horns, greatly varying skin colors, hooves for feet, tails, unusual eyes, and so on. These variances mean that two tieflings born from two different fiends might have vast differences in appearance. Template:Sectstub

OriginsEdit

Though tieflings have the blood of fiendish beings, their ancestry is at least one step removed from the original introduction of that blood: the child of a union of a mortal with a fiendish being is a half-fiend, not a tiefling. Tieflings may then, but not necessarily, be born from the union of the half-fiend with another mortal being. The possibility of a tiefling birth continues to many generations after that union, even when two mortals have children, so long as one of the mortals is a direct descendant of the half-fiend.[2] Half-fiend creatures may be of many types, but it is found that tieflings are only possibly born from humanoids.[3]

HeritagesEdit

Though for most tieflings the source of their fiendish blood is unknown, there are some who can trace their tainted blood back to a specific type of fiend and their very personalities may be warped in a way echoing this ancestry. These tiefling heritages are as follows:[4]
