Physical Description[edit]

Shadow Tieflings are physically like their infernal kin. However, Shadow Tieflings are constantly surrounded in a magical, misty darkness, representing their corruption by the Shadowfell.


Shadow Tieflings were created when the infernal energies of the Abyss were first exposed to the pure negative energies of the Shadowfell. The breeding and combining of these energies created these abnormalities and anomalies within Tiefling society.


Shadow Tieflings are often outcasts, preferring to live on their own rather than with other Tieflings.

Male: Asmodum, Indum, Indar, Devidim

Female: Actar, Briseis, Brumya, Calysta
