The Jötunn are a southern race of giants; however, despite their great stature they have been bullied by neighbouring regions - they dwell in Moyesh, among the Orcs and Makhai. The region they inhabit covers most of the southern and eastern reachs of Moyesh, and is called Jötunheimr.
Anatomy & Morphology
Origin of MorphologyIt is not certain where or what they originated from; however, it is commonly believed that they are the result of Bergrisar and Humans mating, since they have semblances of both.
AnatomyThey are anthropomorphic, with two arms, two legs and an endoskeleton. They have very faint hair covering their body, with much more on their heads.
Sexual DimorphismMales are often larger and stronger than females; however, females are more flexible and have stronger immune systems since they bear children.
Post-Mortem/DecayApon death their corpses turn to stone while simultaneously decomposing. Occasionally, if they're well preserved they can appear to be full statues; however, typically they are crude husks in the shape of what they once were.
Genetics and Reproduction
They reproduce as most mammals do, with a 12 month gestation period.
Growth Rate & Stages
They reach adolescence at about 13 to 15 years and adulthood at about 22 to 24.
Dietary Needs and Habits
They are hypocarnivores.
They have large robust human features, with more prominent brows, and larger noses and ears.
They are considered to be of average intelligence.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Their senses are on par with most mortal races.
Civilization and Culture
First names generally have little bases, besides following the phonetics of their language Otfan. However, last names are based on their father's names.
Major Language Groups and Dialects
OriginThe Jötunn's origins are largely unknown; however, speculation suggests that they are the product of first of the Bergrisar who abandoned their duties as keepers of the Library and then mated with the humans which they found on Domus.
Continued...After reaching Domus they travelled south to Moyesh and settled a large area which they came to simply call Homeland of the Jötunn.
Interspecies Relations and Assumptions
They are a generally peaceful race; however, due to the abuse they have sustained from neighbouring regions, they are very closed off from other races.
