Many tieflings are indistinguishable from humans. Others have small horns, pointed teeth, red eyes, a whiff of brimstone about them, or even cloven feet. No two tieflings are the same.


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

Darkness (Sp): A tiefling can use darkness once per day (caster level equal to class levels).

Skills: A tiefling has a +2 racial bonus on Bluff and Hide checks.
