Hell Child (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
The Hell Children
When a human child is born in the Nine Hells, naturally something strange is afoot.
The man reaches to peer into the smoke engulfing the room, after seeing a red glow from the corner he calls for aid only to be quickly silenced by a sharp hot sensation to the throat.
With a smirk, the Hero bids his family farewell to seek out the voice he hears in his dreams.
She bends down to help the starving child, only to be rejected by him as her hair is currently a light.
|“||These children born with demonic abilities are as rarer than the Gods themselves. Born on a layer of the Nine Hells these Humans are lucky to be alive. Little is written about them as there is only one born around every 1000 years and they tend to keep to themselves. However, they soon learn of their potential. Their endless age and affinity with fire are only some of this potential. However, the drawbacks of being hunted by both Paladins and Demons counter these abilities. It is written in scripture that these children will either destroy Asmodeus King of the Nine Hells or join him and destroy what is left of the mortal plane.||”|
Essentially Hell Children look very similar to your average Human. However, upon closer inspection, you will notice their white hair with red streaks and red pupils giving them some unnatural looking features.
