Dragonborn Goliath (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Born from the ancestry of the Dragons and raised in the highest mountain peaks, Dragonborn Goliaths are considered extremely rare to find, rarer to befriend, and very deadly. They wield the physical power of Goliaths and live in environments that are livable for their dragonic ancestry. They are sometimes filled with great might and pride, or filled with regret and sorrow, therefore making them very hard to interact with unless you want your head shoved far in a stone wall. They are usually hatched from eggs and, if sent to war, destroy an army with one fell swoop.
To humans, Dragonborn Goliaths are extremely frightful and should not be seen. If seen by humans, they are scaly, muscular figures. To dragonborns, they are the strongest warriors of their god. And to Goliaths, they are either disgraces to their families, or an experience to learn something new. Most times, they are the color of their Draconic Ancestry, but they are rarely the grayish color Goliaths take. They are brave, rarely intelligent, and most adaptable to the environment close to their Draconic Ancestry, such as deserts, frozen tundras, or poisonous landscapes.

Very little is known about Dragonborn Goliaths. They usually leave their homelands, or living spaces. But when they are roaming around villages or taverns, they sometimes tell a story about their life, or a story can be told just by their appearance.
Dragonborn Goliaths either stay with their Goliath families, Dragonborn families, or alone with no one to love. Sometimes, they are welcomed in villages, and other times, they are chased out by a riot with pitchforks, torches, and swords.
