is race_letter a char? if so, then the format string should be
"%s %s %d %c %c", otherwise if you have
char race_letter[];
then you don't need the & in front of it.

Ahh, big problem, you can't use switch on strings. if you want
race_letter to be a string, you will need to use a bunch of strcmp's and
if statements.
