Rakshasa-spawn, or beastbrood as they are sometimes called, is the name given to tieflings who are descended from rakshasas.1


Unlike most other tiefling heritages, beastbrood mutations tend not to have a negative impact on their appearance. Rakshasa-spawn often don't develop their tiefling traits until adolescence and even then their traits tend to enhance their appearance. Their traits are normally bestial, things like small fangs, predatory slit eyes or fur, adding a degree of animalistic glamour to their appearance.1


Beastbrood are driven by a taste for luxury and decadence and an impenetrable confidence that they absolutely deserve it. For most beastbrood any level of luxury less than that of royalty is a grave affront to their sense of self-worth. Perversely, despite this incredible arrogance, rakshasa-spawn are gifted with such charisma that others will often indulge this lust for luxury, granting the tiefling unearned deference and status. Beastbrood always act with an aristocratic air of self-importance which normally results in them getting treated deferentially.1

On Golarion

Rakshasa-spawn are by far most common heritage in Vudra, where rakshasa are also much more common than in the Inner Sea region. However most beastbrood born in Vudra escape as soon as possible. Because of the prevalence of rakshasas the Vudrani are very aware of the telltale signs of the rakshasa's taint and such creatures are prevented from gaining any kind of power due to how absolutely they abuse it. As such most beastbrood have a much easier time achieving the wealth and luxury they crave outside of Vudra's borders.1
