According to the Forgotten Realms wiki article on Draegloths, they are perhaps the only variety of half-fiend that was created regularly and intentionally by a mortal race. (Monster Compendium: Monsters of Faerûn, p. 59)

Are there any other half-fiends except for Draegloths that were created intentionally by a mortal race?

    \$\begingroup\$ I am not an expert on FR, but to me this seems like a straightforward lore question. System edition should not be an issue, right? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Szega is completely correct, there is no especial need for a system tag here unless Spartakus specifically wants to limit things to the material from a particular edition. That said, it might be worthwhile—4e messed with FR lore a lot, and while 5e rolled back most of that (confirming how messed up 4e got), it still has some of it that doesn’t mesh with the larger body of material before 4e. \$\endgroup\$

Depending on your interpretation of "regularly and deliberately", there is at least one race that qualifies:


Races of Faerun

The result of four noble houses of sun elves breeding with demons in an attempt to strengthen their bloodline, fey’ri are a type of planetouched that breeds true among their own kind. Marked by their fiendish blood, fey’ri are unique among most planetouched in that they have a self-sustaining community, so they are raised among their own kind.

In addition, there are several races that are the result of interbreeding (Maeluth, Wispling, Alu-fiend, Cambion, etc.), however there is no direct evidence that these were deliberate and regular on the part of the mortal, rather than the fiend.
