Goliath Panda (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Goliath pandas are very large pandas that stand on two legs and are extremely muscular. They have countless combinations of white fur with black patterns on their torsos. They stand anywhere from 6' to 9' tall, their eyes are red or gold depending on their alignment (Red for Evil and Gold for Good, Neutral can choose).
A few centuries ago, a wizard went particularly insane after discovering what he could do to animals with his powers. He proceeded to make countless animal hybrids looking for the ultimate predator, while some of them did not meet the standards he had set out for himself they still were worth keeping around. The goliath pandas are just such a creature, the wizard crossed pandas with the largest orcs he could find, the resulting animal was a bipedal intelligent panda with the capacity to speak. However the wizard did not anticipate how intelligent they truly were when he kept them as bodyguards, the goliath pandas began plotting against him and eventually escaped. Since then they have been living in the forests around the world and try to put their origin behind them, the only trace of the wizard's magic left is the goliath pandas eyes which glow with the residual magic in them.
Goliath pandas have spread all around the world and even beyond into other planes. They live in communities just like most other races, they build villages out of a series of tree houses and bridges linking them. This allows for camouflage and protection from anyone or anything that may be trying to hunt them down. Typically goliath pandas keep to themselves and their communities but lately, they have been venturing out into the rest of the world, learning the variety of combat styles and magic, and joining groups to travel the world and take part in adventures.
