Tieflings are Outsiders that thrive in the nearby Plane of Shadow, and are almost universally chaotic evil in their alignment. They measure up to average human height when standing up straight, but have been known to hunch over. Their shoulder blades extend into horrific, asymmetrical demon wings, which are approximately 12 feet in their fully extended wingspan. They often have horns on either side of their foreheads and their eyes glow red in low light, appearing pure black when stronger light is cast on their faces. Their knees bend backwards, and watching them sit down in their chairs of arcane un-logic has driven grown men insane on more than one occasion.
Tieflings are immensely tactically gifted, usually preferring to divide groups aggressively and to gang-attack healers and casters viciously until they are totally incapacitated, then finish off the rest. They are skilled at skulking through the shadows and moving stealthily, and are known to disappear into darkness multiple times per battle. Expert bands of tieflings work together by providing distractions for each others’ stealth maneuvers, directing their enemies’ attention and making smart use of strategies of misdirection. They prefer to attack with rapiers and with daggers, which they typically carry extra sets of to allow them to throw blades unexpectedly.
