Tieflings are planetouched creatures native to Golarion, mostly human, yet with the blood of demons, devils, demodands, or other evil outsiders in their veins. Also known colloquially (and somewhat pejoratively) as hellspawn, they are often distrusted and feared for this evil lineage. Even in infernal Cheliax where some tieflings serve as middlemen between the people and the denizens of Hell, they are second-class citizens at best.[1]


Tieflings vary greatly in individual appearance from one another, depending not only on the ethnicity of the human parent, but the type of the fiendish parent. They can have horns, greatly varying skin colors, hooves for feet, tails, unusual eyes, and so on. These variances mean that two tieflings born from two different fiends might have vast differences in appearance. For example, a foulspawn tiefling being compared to a pitborn tiefling. The demodand-spawn (foulspawn), let's say the fiend is a tarry demodand, would sprout wings and tar-colored skin, while the demon-spawn (pitborn), let's say the fiend is a babau, would be coated in a morphsuit of red skin, white horns, and freaky-sharp teeth. Most of the time, the Tiefling will hearken back in some way to the fiend that made it. Even so, the mix of Human and fiendish blood is hardly, if ever, ruled by mortal laws, and the result can be oddly beautiful or absolutely terrible, and everything in between.
