Half-Giant, Fire

Descendants of the fire giants often consider bravery one of the highest virtues anyone could and should have. They relish opportunities in which they could test their grit against formidable opponents. They can also be very short-fused and easily riled up. If there's a disagreement, these half-giants prefer brawling over talking, action over words. These half-giants have broad bodies, and their skin is very dark, reminiscent of coal, and the color of their hair tends towards a spectrum of flaming orange or red, with similarly colored red eyes.


This Half-Giant is a member of the Half-Giant race on Arelith and although they fall under the Giant racial categorization in game, they MUST not be roleplayed as a Giant.

Irongron - Sun 24 Jul, 2022: And a reminder - don't RP as a full giant. I was cautious about adding these races not for power, but frequency and RP, I don't want to be required gate or remove the reward so soon.
