Once human, tieflings are the youngest race in the world, born of a dark act of necessity in order to survive “the Rift”. At the time of the cataclysm, the Valcorian empire was so massive it had to be split in 2 in order to maintain order, the Northern Valcorian Empire and the Southern. Whereas the North developed arcane arts to help aid in the battles that resulted during the Rift, the South had 30 arcanists who made dark deals with foul power to gain the upper hand during conflicts. They secured their half of the empire, but at a cost that tainted the blood of every soldier and noble of the southern empire. Now it is known as the Mirascilar Empire, and it is ruled by tiefling noble houses and senate. Cultural influences: Persian Empire & Byzantine Empire.
