Giants are a primordial pre human race who battled the gods in the dawn age and lost. They also battled dragons, reptilians and many other elder races. They have menaced elves and dwarves and halflings and humans since those races existed. Most giants are degenerate cursed monsters. Some are still refined as humans but most of the more magical ones were exterminated aeons ago. Giants are infamous for their voracious appetites. Many giants are terrible parents and allow their young to roam wild. Some children manage to dwell among humans briefly until they grow inhumanly tall and develop monstrous features. Larger giants have trouble fitting in houses or dungeons. Also will tend to have bad reactions with common folk who think you want to eat them.
