During Character Creation, you are given the option of selecting one of three variants after you have selected your race (if all three are unlocked). Variants alter your character's initial appearance, but do not change gameplay significantly.
Unlocking a race will automatically unlock its first variant for use in Character Creation. The second and third variants of a race unlock when the race's unlock requirements are fulfilled a second and third time, respectively. If a race's unlock requirement can only occur once (for example, you can only discover all Alchemy recipes once per save file), the second and third variants will instead unlock on subsequent deaths regardless of how well the character did.
