Though I know in 3.5 that they were created instead, and I think they left both options open for 5e dragonborn origin stories.
    I believe in 5e they are both a true race, and more rarely, hatch out of dragon eggs that were not blessed by Bahamut or Tiamat.

    EDIT: I could be wrong, AFB

    Overall, I really like this fix. The "on initiative" breath weapon fixes most of my issues with the breath weapon. Personally, the Dragonborn my favorite 5e race (my first ever D&D character was a Dragonborn Draconic Sorcerer), even though they are on the weaker side of things when you run the numbers. I'm glad to see that they're getting some love here.
