As implied the name, these aberrants are abnormally large. Giants are grouped as a lesser race although many scholars consider them a class of aberrants. Either way, giants are rare. There are estimated to be less than one thousand giants in the entire world. Some scholars say the number is much less, perhaps only a hundred or so.
In order to be classified as a giant, the humanoid must stand at least three times the height of an average member of its species while being height/weight proportionate. For example, most scholars maintain a human giant must be at least 5 meters (about 16 and a half feet) tall to be considered a giant. While a dwarf giant would only need to be 3.75 meters tall (about 12 feet).
Giants may be of any humanoid race as they are genetic mutations. However, some races seem to produce more giants than others. Humans, ogres, orcs, saurians and grum produce the most giants. Giants from the other races are very rare.
The secambru also have the occasional giant. Their entire race of the secambru are considered "giants", at least historically. However, even the secambru occasionally have a giant towering thrice the height of their citizens. Because of their history and culture, the secambru revere such beings.
Often the mother is killed during childbirth and the larger-than-normal baby grows at an accelerated rate. There have been instances when a giant child is killed out of fear and ignorance. Other villages protect and nurture the child, taking advantage of the great size and strength (for both labor and protection against enemies). Upon reaching adulthood, a typical giant will be three to seven times the average size of that race (usually between 6 and 12 meters tall). Giants tend to be loners with introverted personalities and often leave society at an early age to live in the wilds far from civilized lands.
