The third-oldest species to be born into the world, the giants are an ancient and proud race. Despite their fierce features and imposing mannerisms, the giants tend to be peaceful enough when left alone, usually only attacking after they've been provoked. With their massive skulls, the giants are by far the most intelligent race on the continent, and will often develop technology far beyond the other races, before they're attacked and all progress is lost. While the giants are certainly fearsome foes (a single one could likely take on a thousand orcs and win) their greatest weakness lies in their slow reproduction. With such size, females are pregnant for up to three years before giving birth, after which nearly a century passes before the child comes of age as well.
The giants were created by the same god that formed Calsin itself. By that point, with the trolls and the firingar pillaging the world, the god did not seem inclined to allow his creations to know his name. Thus, the giants simply settled into the part of the world that wasn't engulfed in flame and tried to start building up civilization. Almost instantly, though, the firingar located them and took the war to the new creatures. The giants were only able to push them back after casting a spell that cooled the entire continent and killed millions of firingar. It is unknown, even among the giants of today, how exactly they managed such a feat.
Height: - 100-120 feet
Unusual Characteristics: - Physically, giants resemble humans in many ways, though they tend to be a bit stockier in order to compensate for their enormous height. - Because they have to move so much farther than other species, giants often appear to move in slow motion. Nevertheless, they can run at speeds nearing 100 miles per hour.
Coloring: - Dark tan
Lifespan: - 140-150 years
Magic: - It has been rumored that giants can tap into the same magical field that humans can, due to their similarities in appearance. However, this has never been confirmed.
Other notes: - Despite not reaching maturity until nearly a century old, giants rarely live more than one hundred and fifty years old. This is likely that their massive organs simply have to work too hard to keep them running. This is another reason that the giant population doesn't overflow and overtake the entire continent, as a generation can be well over 100 years long and only produce a handful of offspring.
