Tieflings appear human at a glance, although they all possess one unnatural feature that reveals there infernal heritage. At the least, tieflings have a disturbing demeanor or carry a whiff of brimstone about them, but most also possess small horns, red eyes, or needle-sharp teeth. In extreme cases tieflings may have a barbed tail or cloven feet. No two tieflings have the same appearance.


Tieflings are sneaky, subtle, and generally conniving. They prefer to strike from ambush and usually avoid a fair fight if they can.
