Within the setting of Dying Light, there are six playable races; two of which possess sub-races. There are no known half races within the Nexus Realm and as a rule; a character will always be the same race as their mother.
Each race provides mechanical bonuses to the character, along with a cultural heritage and history. This is provided in greater detail within the Player’s Guide.
