Tieflings are planetouched creatures native to Golarion, mostly human, yet with the blood of demons, devils, 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.


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 teiflings born from two different fiends might have vast differences in appearance.
