Tieflings are a race descended from ancient humans who bargained with demons and other infernal powers. Tieflings are loners who live in the shadows of human society, relying only on trusted allies.

Average Weight: 140–230 lb.
Aging: Similar lifespan to humans, though many tieflings are not claimed by old age.
The tiefling race now resides almost fully within the Firecrown Islands. The kingdom is mostly cut off from the rest of the world, for few are open to trade with them. Other races regard them with anything from suspicion to mild revulsion to extreme fear.
Tieflings’ appearance testifies to their infernal bloodline. They have large horns; thick, nonprehensile tails that range in length from 4 to 5 feet; sharply pointed teeth; and eyes that are solid orbs of black, red, white, silver, or gold. Their skin color covers the whole human range and also extends to reds, from a ruddy tan to a brick red. Their hair, cascading down from behind their horns, is as likely to be dark blue, red, or purple as more common human colors.
Tieflings favor dark colors and reds, leathers and glossy furs, small spikes and buckles. Tiefling-crafted arms and armor often have an archaic style, harkening back to the glory of their long-vanished empire.
