Tales of Wuxia
Oni born are the offspring of unions – rarely willing – between mortals and demons. Given demonic predilections, oni born are unfortunately common. Theories abound as to the truth about these creatures. Most folk purport to feel sympathy for them, but secretly assume they’re in league with the demons (which some are).
Oni born can’t pass as ordinary mortals. The vestigial horns, tail, and sometimes wings – while not strictly ugly – kind of stand out. Thus, their Social Stigma applies almost constantly.
