A cloud giant is a large member of the giant race. Cloud giants have vision that extends into the infrared (although this is not infravision) which allows them to see particularly well through fog and cloud. They also have an excellent sense of smell.[3] They speak Jotunskye and Jotun.[4]

Cloud giants are sky-dwelling giants with pale skin and sky-blue hair. Adults are about 18 feet tall and weigh about 5,000 pounds. They tend to dress in flowing cloud-colored robes and fine jewelry.

These giants prefer to live in the tallest mountains, or even higher if possible. Those with magical talent often create floating castles or cities[citation needed] in which to dwell, held aloft in the sky atop a mass of clouds.[2] Cloud giants all possess some control over their namesake, being able to summon forth a cloud of fog and mist at will.

Physical descriptionEdit

Cloud giants’ skin ranges in color from milky white to light sky blue. Their hair is silvery white or brass, and their eyes are iridescent blue. Adult males are about 18 feet tall and weigh about 5,000 pounds. Cloud giants prefer to wear fine clothing and jewelry.[2]
