Tieflings share certain racial traits as a result of their infernal descent. Alignment. Tieflings might not have an innate tendency toward evil, but many of them end up there. Evil or not, an independent nature inclines many tieflings toward a chaotic alignment. 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, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can’t discern color in darkness, only shades of gray. Infernal Bloodline. Select an infernal bloodline from those in the table. You gain the abilities listed there as well.
Languages. You can speak, read, and write Common and Infernal.

|Balor||Strength||Tiefling Weapon Training. You have proficiency with the shortsword and whip.||Fire Aura. As a bonus action you can emanate an aura of flaming magic around you for 1 minute or until your concentration is broken (as if concentrating on a level 1 spell). While your aura is active, each creature that starts or ends its turn within 5 feet of you takes 1d6 fire damage, and flammable objects in the aura that are not being worn or carried ignite. Once you use this trait, you cannot use it again until you finish a short rest or long rest.||Flaming Retribution. When a creature touches you or hits you with a melee attack while within 5 feet of you, you can use your reaction to unleash your abyssal magic upon the creature. The creature must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw or takes 2d6 fire damage. The save DC for this saving throw equals 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier. Once you use this trait, you cannot use it again until you finish a short rest or long rest.|

When you finish a short rest or long rest, you can touch one melee weapon or piece of ammunition to coat with your cold, infernal magic. A creature hit by the weapon or ammunition coated with your magic must make a Constitution saving throw or take cold damage equal to twice your level and have its speed decreases by 10 feet until the end of its next turn.
