I was thinking headwear too, but his ears are slightly pointed-- yet not pointed enough to be elezen, so perhaps he is a new race. My opinion is there's going to be many humanoid races, but probably most not playable. I think we'll see quite a few moogles, but also not playable.

I've been leaning towards a Hyur Highlander for a while and after having run the benchmark as one, I'm pretty much decided.
That having been said, we're seeing a number of different races and such that we'll encounter in the game but no real indication at this point that any of them will be playable. I noticed in the scenes with the so-called "Gria" that he's surrounded by a bunch of other masked NPCs which suggests very strongly that he's a major plot character and not a hint of things to come.
