To be a tiefling is to be defiant—defiant of the stares, proud despite the whispers, and sure of yourself regardless of a heritage of darkness. Tieflings laugh in the faces of those who would judge, sneer at those filled with ignorant fear, and stand tall amid all the accusations, spoken or unspoken.
To play a tiefling is to wield the power granted by an ancient evil, and to adopt the sly grin and twinkling eye. With a tiefling character, you play the part of the ne’er-do-well who doesn’t mean any harm, the rake with a heart of gold, the reluctant hero, the rogue scholar tempted by forbidden knowledge, or the antihero who stalks the shadows while trying to fight his own darker nature.
