Devil-spawn—or hellspawn, devilborn, or devilkin,1 as they are sometimes called—is the name given to tieflings who are descended from devils.2 Indeed, hellspawn is a pejorative term often applied to any tiefling regardless of their heritage.3 In appearance devil-spawn most closely match the cliched image of a tiefling, with pointed tails, horns and oddly coloured eyes or eyes with pupils of an unusual shape being the most common devil-spawn features. Amongst tieflings devil-spawn are the most conservative and least likely to rebel against their lot in life, instead they tend to focus on quietly acquiring as much wealth and power as possible and using it however they please. They seem to have a particular knack for identifying the hidden desires and vices of others and many a devil-spawn's career has left a trail of exposed secrets, shattered careers and ruined lives in its wake.2

Devil-spawn are most common within the nation of Cheliax where they are actively loathed by the human population, they have had some more success in Chelaxian client states such as Isger. Devil-spawn are so despised that the government of Cheliax views them as entirely expendable and shows little hesitation in forcing them into slavery to sell off to any other nation that still tolerates the barbaric practice.2
