Tieflings are more numerous than anyone realizes, but because they are scattered through settlements across the land, it is difficult to get an accurate count. It is rumored among census-takers that there are enough tieflings in the world to fill a city the size of Ironcrest or New Joryn.
Regardless of their numbers, the tieflings are a race without a home. According the dwarves, halflings, and denizens of the Crystal Veil, the tieflings did not exist before the arrival of the humans. However, there are no records of their appearance. This shroud of mystery causes more than a few people to suspect and mistrust the tieflings and this suspicion is only augmented by their devilish appearance.
