Tieflings are a mix of human and outer-planar creatures, most often of a fiendish origin. They resemble humans, though their skin can pass the usual colors, and they often have a distinct physical trait, such as horns, scaly skin, or an unusual smell.

They don’t have a culture of their own, instead, they are outcasts, shunned upon, even to the point where some of them were killed as babies as the parent couldn’t accept such a child. Only a few experience love in their youth and it can show.

They don’t really belong anywhere in particular and have no homeland. Instead, they are more likely to roam the country, even going for longer journies as they have nothing to cling to. Instead, they like to travel, looking for a place to call their own.
