Heirs to an ancient, infernal bloodline, tieflings have no realm of their own but instead live within human kingdoms and cities. They are descended from human nobles who bargained with dark powers, and long ago their empire subjugated half the world. But the empire was cast down into ruin, and tieflings were left to make their own way in a world that often fears and resents them.
Plagued by their dark and sinister heritage, tieflings walk through the shadows of their race’s past, savoring the darkness or trying to escape it. Many prosper despite prejudice and preconceived notions of their evil nature.
