Three Tiefling bloodlines were covered in the pages of Dragon; the Blood-Crowned Courtiers (Dragon #381), the Broken Mirrors of Levistus (Dragon #383) and the Blightseers of Baalzebul (Dragon #387). The Blood-Crowned Courtiers were represented by the ability to switch out infernal wrath as a racial power for diabolic transformation, similar to the Dragonfear Dragonborn, whilst the latter two bloodlines gained additional racial powers. Also, Blood-Crowned Courtiers lacked a Paragon Path, whilst both of the others possessed one.
