Three sample half-tiefling adventurers are described below.
Akmenos is a half-tiefling warlock. Not only does he have to overcome the dark side from his race and his infernal pact, but he has to overcome his size. He is a vicious fighter, showing enemies that size doesn't matter. He feels compassion to both Tieflings and Halflings.
Corrin is a half-tiefling rogue. He, unlike most half-tiefling, enjoys his size, and uses it to hide in small places. He is now one of the lead assassins in his gang. Although he gets paid well, he hates being an assassin, and plans to overthrough the gang when he can get enough troops. For now, though, he patiently waits.
Sorrow is a half-tiefling fighter. He is a soldier for his village, and protects the village with his life. They are on the edge of a wild land of monsters, so they are constantly under attack. Because of this, he is one of the best fighters in the land.
