Giant

The giants of Lethea inhabit the area around Golat's Shield, Defender's Pass, and Yinhare forest in the Empire of Lorgzilin, north of The Divide. They are split between two distinct ethnic groups. Yinharians live in Yinhare forest and their larger Macranithan cousins dwell in the mountain valleys around Golat's Shield and on the hill slopes near Defender's Pass.

Basic Information

Growth Rate & Stages

A giant takes on average around 80 years to reach adulthood. Puberty strikes when they are in their 50s.

Ecology and Habitats

The giants reside in colder climates. The heavy layer of fat that covers their body makes life in more tropical climates difficult, if not impossible for them.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Giants hunt the giant animals in the Yinhare forest and they eat the fish from lake Dundanios. They are omnivores, but too many plants on their plate can make them sick.

Geographic Origin and Distribution

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Compared to humans, giants are bad at noticing when something has touched their skin. They are much more resilient to physical pain and can withstand walking through a blazing fire, without a care in the world. The fire still has the same effects on their skin and flesh as it would on others and since giants have more fat that could catch on fire, walking through fire, although not that painful, should still be avoided.
