Ator's Exhilarating Tales Of Thrilling Adventure
The tide of the Great War flowed back and forth between Humans and Dragonborn. In a desperate attempt to preserve their power, the emperor Bael Turath gathered the lords and nobles of the country’s capital, Vor Kragal, and spoke of a way to turn the war to their side. While some refused (only to be murdered to allow for total control), many saw it as the only way. Demons began to appear in large numbers in the ancient city and meld with the residents. Pacts were made between demons and royal houses that locked them as well as their ancestors into an evil pact for eternity. The unholy union between Human and Devil manifested itself during that time into the race known as the Tiefling. At this point, the Humans from other regions realized the hell they had released in the name of war. It was at that time that Humans turned to the Dragonborn for assistance. This alligence destroyed the growing Tiefling empire and left the Tieflings (many who were early desendents of the orignial houses) strangers in a strange land. Not quite human, but not fully demon, the Tielfings live their lives looking as both, the mark for their ancestors betryal. Once the war ended, two factions of Tiefling were created. The first returned to their home city of Vor Kragal, now swallowed by the Carnah Desert. The remaining settled amongst the other races of Idlewild, hoping their story will be forgotten with time. And although the Great War is now a story passed on as legend, many still keep a watchful eye when a Tiefling is about.
