Physical Description[edit]

Bladelings are humanoid beings with skin of a dull metallic hue, spotted with patches of metallic spines. Their eyes gleam like shards of purple ice, and their blood is black and oily.

By David Day


Bladelings hail from the Infinite Battlefield of Acheron, though many scholars believe they emigrated there from another plane, possibly the Nine Hells of Baator, the Bleak Eternity of Gehenna, or even some unknown metal-based plane. Some tribes wander Acheron's other layers, and even other planes, occasionally venturing as far as the Material Plane and settling in areas where war is common and mercenaries welcomed.


Most live on Ocanthus, the fourth layer of Acheron, and those that do have a reputation of xenophobia. Such bladelings as travel other planes are much more tolerant of strange beings but still tend not to trust anyone they do not know.

Though they don't all worship gods, those that do lean towards Hextor, Tempus, or other gods of war. Bladelings tend to be quick to jump into battle, relying on their tough skin and natural agility to see them through any fight. They're also brave, usually focusing their attacks on the most dangerous combatant they see.
