Tiefling

To be greeted with stares and whispers, to suffer violence and insult on the street, to see mistrust and fear in every eye: this is the lot of the tiefling. Their appearance and their nature are not their fault but the result of an ancient sin, for which they and their children and their children’s children will always be held accountable.

Tieflings are derived from human bloodlines, and in the broadest possible sense, they still look human. However, their infernal heritage has left a clear imprint on their appearance. Tieflings have large horns that take any of a variety of shapes. They have thick tails, their canine teeth are sharply pointed, and their eyes are often fiendish and otherworldly. Their their skin tones cover the full range of human coloration, but also typically include various shades of red and purple, or even darker blue. Their hair, cascading down from behind their horns, is usually dark, from black or brown to dark red, blue, or purple.
