Basic Information

Biological Traits

Being the offspring of humans and demons, they share a lot of their physical traits with that of a normal human. The ears of oni can be more angled like those of a half elf but that isn't a guaranteed trait. The most notable traits that Oni seem to share is pale skin, sharper eyes, eye color of a red hue (so either blood red or light pink) and their sharpened claws like nails. Though, some have been unfortunate enough to be cursed/born with multiple limbs or even heads.

Civilization and Culture


Just like each Oni, their history is all based on the individual. Some tales tell of a human and demon who fell madly in love and their ospring came out as a mix of the two. Others tell of a person who made a deal with the demon but betrayed the demon. So the demon cursed the human to walk as it does and see what it sees, turning him into an Oni. Whether by curse, blood or some other means the oni’s history is as diverse as the ones who call themselves Oni.
Due to their demonic heritage they often live up to 200 years old. Once they reach an age of maturity their features stop aging
Average Height
Like humans, Oni can vary widely in height and build, from barely 5 feet to well over 6 feet tall. Regardless of your position in that range, your size is Medium.
