Race traits are keyed to specific races or ethnicities. In order to select a race trait, your character must be of the trait’s race or ethnicity. If your race or ethnicity changes at some later point (as could be possible due to the result of polymorph magic or a reincarnation spell), the benefits gained by your racial trait persist— only if your mind and memories change as well do you lose the benefits of a race trait. Of course, in such an event, you’re also likely to lose skills, feats, and a whole lot more!
These race traits are available to all characters of the race in parenthesis in the traits name. If no race is listed then it is intended for Humans.
