The Age of Legends
“Cast me to the shadows? Fine by me. I like the dark. I’ve got a lot of friends there. By the way, the sun doesn’t stay up forever… Have a nice walk home tonight.”
Also known as “The Cursed”, Tieflings bear the sins of their ancestors upon their flesh every day. Descended from arguably one of the most powerful Empires Thren’dia has ever seen, these now nomadic beings scour the world searching for a place to call their home, all the while distrusted by almost everyone they meet.
Generations of persecution have all but removed any innocence the race once possessed. They live in the shadows of most major cities, taking on the roles of thieves and assassins in order to get by. Though not every Tiefling is inherently evil, it is difficult to ignore the call the darkness that beckons to each.
The curse of the Tieflings gives them the appearance of the dark master whom the ancient ancestors of the race made a nefarious deal with; Asmodeus. They have red skin, obsidian black hair, sleek, slender tails, and the thick, curled horns. Despite those common features, their looks vary greatly. Some develop spikes on their skulls or jaw bones. Others form bone crests along their arms or shoulders. Their eyes tend to glow dull red, orange, or yellow, while a few have eyes as black as pits.
