Draco-Elf Variant (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Draco-elves take on the base shape of their elven form. They have partially scaly skin, long, tough nails, slitted eyes, and may have horns thanks to their dragon blood. Less common traits such as Wings and a tail are rare but not unheard of depending on the individual. Draco-elves have the potential to be able to tap into the ancient power of their bloodline to assume a look more like a dragon than a humanoid. There have even been tales of Draco-elves with the strongest blood being able to shift into a true dragon form briefly, but records of such acts have been few in history and believed to be rumors.
Born to one parent being an elf and the other being a dragon, these creatures are great in a hand-to-hand fight and with magic. It's not exactly an unusual occurrence for some dragons to take on a humanoid form and get intimate with humanoid creatures such as humans and elves, some more consensual than others, so why has it only been the past century or so that these particular half-breeds have been popping up? Perhaps a story point for your character to be looking into, or perhaps it's simply an idle curiosity, or one born from a not-so-consensual pairing may even have no interest in their lineage at all.
Elves and Dragons both have very lengthy lifespans, plenty of time to accumulate worldly knowledge.
Draco-Elves may have been shunned by their homeland for resembling a typically evil creature, or perhaps they were held in high regard because they were born into a good and kind family. For example, Gold Dragons tend to be altruistic, graceful, and wise, so it's unlikely their golden-scaled offspring would be looked upon with much fear by civilized societies, whereas Black Dragons are known to be the most vile-tempered and cruel of all dragons.
Dragons are inherently magical beings, and as such draco-elves are usually quick learners when it comes to magical knowledge.

Draconic Ancestry. You have draconic ancestry. Choose one type of dragon from the Draconic Ancestry table. Your breath weapon and damage resistance are determined by the dragon type, as shown in the table.
Damage Resistance. You have resistance to the damage type associated with your draconic ancestry.
Breath Weapon. You can use your action to exhale destructive energy. Your draconic ancestry determines the size, shape, and damage type of the exhalation. When you use your breath weapon, each creature in the area of the exhalation must make a saving throw, the type of which is determined by your draconic ancestry. The DC for this saving throw equals 8 + your Constitution modifier + your proficiency bonus. A creature takes 2d6 damage on a failed save, and half as much damage on a successful one. The damage increases to 3d6 at 6th level, 4d6 at 11th level, and 5d6 at 16th level. After you use your breath weapon, you can't use it again until you complete a long rest.
Dual Heritage. You have proficiency in either Arcana or History.

Trance. elves don’t need sleep instead they meditate deeply remaining semiconscious for 4 hours a day. (The common word for such meditation is “trance.”) while meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.
