Racial Ancestry

Most races tend to breed amongst themselves. It is a part of tradition and provides a certain familiarity and comfort level. Occasionally love breaks the boundaries of race. The offspring of these unions often carry the traits of both their parents. These qualities can be handed down from generation to generation. Sometimes the traits are dormant and sometimes they manifest in force, giving the select progeny abilities beyond their dominant race.
Selection of one of the following racial feats indicates there was a member of the race in your past lineage. Perhaps this personage is well known to your family or perhaps its involvement has been covered up. Either way, you have reaped the boon its blood has added to your family line.
