Ascendants: The Second Rebellion
Heirs of a shattered empire who live in the shadows and do not fear the dark.
Heirs to an ancient, infernal bloodline, tieflings have no realms of their own but instead live within human kingdoms and cities, usually as slaves or servants. They are descended from human nobles who bargained with dark powers, and long ago their empire, Bael Turath, subjugated half the world. But the empire was cast down into ruin during the War of Blood and Fire, and tieflings were left to make their own way in a world that often fears and resents them.
