A Teifling is a 1/2 demon, usable as a PC in the planescape setting, they ahve all kinds of random features such as a tail (Annah from Torment) or wings, claws, oversized ears, etc...

Not quite half-demon. Cambions are half-demon (they have a full-blooded demon as a parent). Iuz of the world of Greyhawk is a cambion - his father is the demon prince Graz'zt. Tieflings are part of the group of beings known as the planetouched. They have the blood of a fiend in their ancestry somewhere, and this manifests itself in some anatomical oddity as Morgeruat described above. People also feel uncomfortable in their presence. They are most often planars (from the planes) but can occasionally be primes (from the Prime Material Plane). Tieflings are usually (but not always) evil.

Their counterparts are called aasimar. Aasimar have the blood of a celestial (a solar, deva or planetar) flowing through their veins. Aasimar are usually (but not always) good.

Other examples of planetouched are the genasi - who are descended from efreet, genies, water or earth elementals.

It can be found in the various monster manuals, or campaign settings, which I imagine his collection probably rivals my own

sorry to answer the question that was meant for you Memnoch

thanks for the enlightenment memnoch. I know ive read so much of this stuff and know of so many things in the different realms, but i never heard of a tiefling before this game. Kinda strange if you ask me.

That would be giving away a trade secret.
