Demon-Born (3.5e Race)

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Completely confused. Uses a mix of 3.5e and 5e terminology, and some non-D&D terminology (there isn't a "health" stat). Dark Form is useless if it gives you -24 Wisdom, this would turn you into an oblivious object.

You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

Demon-Born are a proud race, they usually have a great defense of their heritage, those whom they befriend, and are usually careless of everyone else. They may be rowdy, carefree, and start fights whenever they are bored.

Physical Description[edit]

Demon-Born are slightly shorter than the average human. They may have small claws or black eyes. Some Demon-Born are indistinguishable from regular humans.


They aren't usually friendly, but more easily befriend others if they aren't of an evil alignment.


Usually Evil, Almost always Chaotic.


Underground or in a temperate environment.


Demon gods or as per alignment. Demon-Born also have a tendency to ignore all religions and do there best to avoid holy places, people, and artifacts.


Common, Undercommon, and Abyssal. They may easily learn any other however.


Demon-Born usually have a human name or a demonic name, some have a name that is a combination of both.

Racial Traits[edit]

  • Dark Form: : Once per long rest, if the Demon-Born's health drops below zero and survives, her skin becomes covered black runes and symbols. She gains 10 health, and now has the following traits
  • All current effects that are depleting or sapping the Demon-Born of her health no longer affect her, and her health regenerates 15 points instantly.
  • When entering Dark Form, the Demon-Born, as an immediate action, makes a Legendary Action against whatever dropped her health to (or below) zero.
  • +10 Strength, Dexterity +15 Constitution, -24 Wisdom, Intelligence, x1.5 base speed, Regenerate 15 HP at the start of each turn, +10 DR, Dark Form lasts until the Demon-Born is at full health
  • Demon Arms: While in Dark Form, the Demon-Born's arms and anything they are holding become covered in black energy. The black energy forms into two giant arms that are each the length of the characters body. The hands are two size categories larger than the her current hand size. +5 grapple, cannot wield any weapons. The energy can be used to turn into Wings, and shield any damage from an attack 25% of the time, but can only make Demon Claw Attack while the dark energy is in its Arm Form.
  • Demon Claw Attack: 5d12+Str. or Dex. mod. (whichever is higher)
  • A Demon-Born in her Dark Form cannot communicate with their allies and are considered to have "mind blank". Each round, the Demon-Born tries to attack as many enemies as possible with no regard to their own health.
  • The Demon-Blood's Dark Form ends when she has been in this form when one of the requirements are met: 12 rounds in battle have gone by, all enemies have been slain, or her health goes below zero once while in her Dark Form.
  • After exiting Dark Form, The Demon-Born has 2 minutes of being completely fine before she goes unconscious for 10 minutes, and once awoken has a -5 penalty to all attack rolls and saves until she takes a long rest.
  • Once she awakes, the Demon-Born has amnesia for recalling any memories that occurred while in her Dark Form.
