Tales of Magic and the Mundane
Giants are created when creatures of Hell, either Daemons or Orcs, enter the world and breed with mortal races. The results are brutish creatures, tall as a mountain, and as powerful as the sea. This power is because of the dark taint inherited by the devilish creatures. Their lack of souls makes them a dangerous adversary. However, the taint dissipated over a period of several generations, explaining the vast differences of the size of these creatures. After twenty generations have passed, the traits of the mortal race begin to return. These men are labeled as Half Giants.
Half Giants are an outcast in human society, their impressive size and lack of emotion makes them feared across many kingdoms. They are commonly used as Gladiators in Human Armies, and are sometimes hexed by witches to become eternal protectors of a coven. They all share a love of battle, as well as a mortal fear of magic.
