[RPG] How to get a feat at level 1 in D&D 5e


I was wondering about the magic initiate feat. Because I want to know if you can take it first level because I'm making a human warlock who's always been in-tune with magic even before making the pact and think the feat would work great for the character if I can use it right away.

The only way, RAW, to get a feat at first level, is to be a Variant Human. PHB page 31, "Variant Human Traits"

If your DM is open to houserules, however, they could simply give all characters a feat if they choose.
