Subraces and Variants
Subraces must be chosen for a race. Variants are considered optional. Currently Half-Elves, Humans, Orcs, and Tieflings have optional racial Variants. Other races that have no Subrace or Variant include Aarakocra, Bugbear, Centaur, Changeling, Dragonborn, Firbolg, Goblin, Goliath, Grung, Half-Orc, Hobgoblin, Kalashtar, Kenku, Kobold, Leonin, Lizardfolk, Locathah, Loxodon, Minotaur, Orc, Satyr, Simic Hybrid, Tabaxi, Tortle, Triton, Vedalken, Warforged, and Yuan-Ti Pureblood.
Ask
Always ask your DM first before picking a race, especially a non-standard race or subrace. Some races, a Loxodon as an example, require the character to come from a different world setting than the traditional Forgotten Realms.
