Velstrac-spawn, or shackleborn or kyton-spawn as they are sometimes called, are tieflings who are descended from velstracs.[1]


Most of a shackleborn's flesh is usually scarred by the time they are born, and many add to those mutilations over time.[1]


As descendants of velstracs, shackleborn share their progenitors' cruelty and affinity for pain, both their own and inflicting it upon others. They also share velstracs' aptitude with torture instruments and chains.[1]

On Golarion

Shackleborn are most common in Cheliax and Nidal, and are also rumored to serve as — or are bred to be — torturers in Razmiran.[1]
