Tiefling Highwayman & Murderer
Make tiefling, early 30’s. Medium height, slender build. Deep crimson skin verging on maroon, shoulder-length black hair worn loose. Backwards-curving short black horns like those of a goat, feral yellow eyes, gleaming white teeth with prominent incisors. Upper body covered with geometric tiefling gang tattoos extending across chest, shoulders, down forearms etc. Smooth, rich voice with no trace of Bal-Shanaari accent; speaks slowly, tries to maintain a predatory air, relishes intimidating those he perceives to be weaker. Body language like that of a panther or similar predator, deceptively fluid but sinuous and lethal.
