Theolan

Physical Description

Theolan - Description

These humanoids show a great variety. Both infernal and celestial blood boils in their veins. Their appearance can be that of the most hideous demon to the most beautiful of human and anywhere in between.

History

Theolans are the result of a celestial falling from grace in the heavenly realms and having to seek employment. No one on the terrestrial planes dared employ a celestial who was out of grace with other celestials, so they found the one place that would take them in, the infernal realms. Generations have passed and the offspring of the combination on celestial and infernal blood has resulted in a new race which is both and yet neither.

Society

These half-bloods are deemed as abominations by celestials. Their hesitance to the full brutality of their demonic blood makes them be viewed as weak and squeamish by those with full infernal blood. Theolans are stuck in the middle ground with few allies.

Alignment

Theolan are strongly conflicted in alignment. On one side, they used to serve in the celestial courts, even if many generations ago. On the other hand, they are often employed by fiends and demons. Their bloodline is now a combination of both celestial and demonic leaving even greater conflict.

Blood Bond

The celestial and fiendish blood acts as an antenna making you more susceptible to telepathic connections from fiendish and celestial sources. These connections often manifest as a vision or dream.

This trait is entirely at the GMs direction and may be a celestial pretending to be a fiend, or a fiend pretending to be a celestial or any number of other things.

Darkvision

Thanks to your infernal heritage, you have superior vision in dark and dim conditions. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light. You can't discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.
