Blackheart (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Blackhearts were once a proud and noble empire of humans that was eternally damned due to a faustian bargain, that was forced upon them. They were offered as the bargainingship of their enemy to a powerful archdevil in pursuit of power and the opportunity to destroy their enemy. As the city was being beseiged the once proud kindom of men requested aid from all neighboring kingdoms, villages, even barbarian wartribes, none came to their aid. As the final days of the once proud nation the king onlooked to the outskirts of his castle and saw the kindoms he had sent aid to... watching, laughing, mocking. since then these people have excepted their damnation and are returning..... to make the descendants of man pay for their betrayal.
Blackhearts are vicious, dangerous, and the most vile beings to walk this earth. They're goal is to make every last creature on this planet bow down to them, and then they'll crush you under their foot. Male Blackhearts are only focused on dominance
Blackhearts appear as Large, Muscular Humans with Faded-Red Skin, and Black Veins. They tend to have exagerated features, and tend to look devilishly alluring to other creatures. Their most notable feature is in the center of their chest is a large portruding black heart, covered by an overlap of thick flayed skin. Male Blackhearts tend to be more monstrous in appearance, Female Blackhearts even though still physically imposing, they appear almost like an amazonian crossed with a succubus.

Blackhearts have no names they are born marked with an insignia on their Right Arm until they come of age then they are given a title to take the place of a name. They have such titles as: The Dashade, Black Hand, and Night. This title is given to them based on a significant action they may have done or one that has been given to them. When they are given a title they may only refuse it by killing the title giver, if not they are stuck with it forever. When giving a Blackheart a title it is showing your superiority, if they accept it they are honor bound to serve you. They must be able to undertand you are giving them a title, if you give them a title in a foreign language it will not work, they also must be able to hear you give them said title.
