The Army Beyond Death
Tieflings are descended from the residents of a city where the humans forged bonds with demons in a desperate attempt to defend their falling city from the oncoming Undead. Though the city fell, the powers the demons bestowed allowed the newly bonded humans, later to become known as Tieflings, to save almost the entire population of the city, escorting them safely to the closest of the Great Cities. This is remembered as a victory, as the undead losses in breaking through into the city had been much larger than the casualties taken when the people retreated. As such, Tieflings are well looked upon, and their skills are still put to use.
Reddish skin, long pointed tails, and large horns upon their head make a Tiefling unmistakable in a crowd. Their eyes are solid orbs of colour, and their hair can take on a wider spectrum of hues than most races. Otherwise, they resemble humans in build and height, and live only a few years longer on average.
Tieflings tend to be silver tongued, their demonic heritage giving them a natural charm and charisma, they also tend to be intelligent, often found in scholarly positions. Their demonic blood makes them well suited to various types of magic, and such gifts are often used to aid in battle situations.
