Shadow Demon Tiefling[edit]

Everyone knows the story of how some elves made a pact with a shadow demon, infusing its essence and cursing their entire generation forever. But what many do not know is that after the fall of the empire, some survivors of the newly created race still sought for power. Among these, a man whose name is long forgotten, traveled to the plane of shadow, and there his descendants were touched by darkness. Their heritage went beyond the infernal pact. It transformed their skin in shades of gray or even shadow. Even the fire that runs through their veins was touched by the darkness.

A shadow tiefling has the following traits, which replace the tiefling's Ability Score Increase, Infernal Legacy, and Languages. A shadow tiefling retains its Darkvision and Hellish Resistance traits.

Ability Score Increase. Your Dexterity score increases by 1 and your Charisma score increases by 2.
Naturally Stealthy. You have proficiency in the Stealth skill.
Shadow Legacy. Youknow the thaumaturgy cantrip. When you reach 3rd level, you can cast the hellish rebuke spell as a 2nd-level spell once with this trait and regain the ability to do so when you finish a long rest. When you reach 5th level, you can cast the darkness spell once with this trait and regain the ability to do so when you finish a long rest. Charisma is your spellcasting ability for these spells.
Languages. You can speak, read, and write Abyssal and Common.
