"Nero, go! You're just dead weight." — Dante
"That bastard called me dead weight!" — Nero
Half-Devils appear as mostly human; very few have any features that tell them apart from your fellow man if they don't use their devil forms; an ability known as Devil Trigger to them. Being similar in build and age for the first couple of decades, making them appear nearly undying beings as they do tend to recover from impalings with great finesse. The few Half-Devils out there seem to have similar hair of either jet black or silver white, though it may be just a rare case of those genes being passed on by their human parents from generation to generation.
Throughout history, ever since demons and devils entered the mortal planes, there have been those to fight back against their attempt to conquer it. Humans who pick up strong weapons created to slay them, and traitorous devils who either pitied, sought to rule over or even fell in love with humans. Whatever feelings they had, eventually lead to courtship between them, leading to the Half-Devils we know today; strong, agile, and smug beings who share a similar goal to their parents or grandparents.
As they aren't usually different from humans: Half-Devils take to social places like any other human race, rarely being picked out by any non-demon or -devil blooded creatures. Though most hunt devils and demons alike, few find a quiet life more accomplishing than a loud bloody one.
Half-Demons most often tend towards human name times based in biblical lore, but occasionally Abyssal and Infernal names are used.
Male Examples: Vergil, Dante, Nero, Isaac
Female Examples: Mary, Jezebel, Trish (a rare case of a devil taking a human name)
