Tieflings were unknown in Arekhan before the War of the Rift. Some chose to join with the daemon invaders in search of greater power, while others were the spawn of forced breeding using human captives. When a large number of tieflings defected to the side of humanity, it helped turn the tide of the war. Despite this, tieflings are usually viewed with fear and suspicion by most people. Imagine how a half-daemon would be treated in any feudal society from Earth – run out of town, blamed for diseases or crop failures, or even lynched. Tieflings have no known lands of their own, and they are among humans, elves, dwarves, or other civilizations.
