Diaboli are a strange race that is native to the Nightmare Plane. Despite their diabolic apperance, most are fairly decent fellows. They have small horns, black skin, goat-like legs, and a long tail that ends in a stinger. Despite not being native to the Material Plane they cross over on a regular basis and many make their home there. Diaboli are an archistic people believing that chaos is the inherent state of the universe. There are three main subspecies of Diaboli. The bald diaboli has no hair anywhere on their body. The common diaboli have aproximately the same amount of body hair as a human and the males tend to sport elaberate beards. Hirsute diaboli are almost entirely covered in hair, leaving only their face exposed.
