Turathi Hell-Kite

"I’m skilled in a martial art that’s over a thousand years old. I’d teach it to you, but you’ll be dead too soon."

Prerequisite: Tiefling, any martial class

Bael Turath left more than ruins in its wake. Knowledge was also its legacy. No society reaches such great heights without creating great works of architecture, art, magic, and—most importantly—war. Adventurers, scholars, and enthusiasts have long sought the martial secrets taken for granted by the nobles of that infernal empire.

You know one of those secrets: a long-forgotten style of martial combat devised specifically for tieflings, drawing upon their mental faculties and unique physicality to perform amazing stunts. Your study of the Way of the Hell-Kite has granted you a deeper understanding of your body’s capabilities and the ability to surpass its limitations.
