An Age Unbegun: Not Men, but Wolves
Like tieflings, cambions have a shared humanoid-demonic heritage. However, whereas tieflings may express demonic traits but ultimately favor their earthly parent, cambions lean toward their infernal parentage. Their individual features can vary quite widely, but every cambion bears an infernal blade, borne of their flesh, and forged of their bone, which is tied to them both physically and spiritually. As a cambion grows in power and station, so too does their blade grow.
Few cambions live in Hell. Most dwell in the earthly plains, where they make their livings as assassins. Cambions are rarely scrupulous and will likely work for anyone willing to pay their fee, but in most respects, they’re like any other contract killer. For most, it’s about money, not politics or religion or any other ambition greater than amassing personal wealth, a strong reputation, and usually a sense of self-satisfaction. The big difference is that cambions tend to be very, very good at their job. Oh, and they often request that they be paid with gold that’s touched the blood of their employer. It’s all in the details, really.
