Aasimar

From time to time fiends and celestials mate with mortals, their offspring treated with fear and reverence for the supernatural talents bestowed by their divine parentage. Those with ancestors from the benign Outer Planes are not as brazen as tieflings, usually choosing to hide their angelic bloodline from those who would exploit them.
