Jungle giants subsist on a diet composed entirely of meat. Jungle giants roam the jungles of Zakhara quickly hunting all the prey in an area before quickly moving on to the next stretch of jungle. Jungle giants stand 18’ tall and can weigh up to 3,000 pounds. Male jungle giants typically stand shorter than females. Jungle giants can live to 200 years old. With light green hair and yellow skin, their lean but powerful frames blend easily into the jungles they call home. Every jungle giant carries all necessities required for life in the jungle, as well as any valuables they possess with them. They speak their own language plus those of any nearby humanoids. Some jungle giants will tattoo themselves, file their teeth to points and wear feathered headdresses to appear as frightening as possible. Jungle giants wear little clothing to provide ease of movement when fighting or stalking in the jungle. They will camouflage themselves when hunting dangerous prey.

CombatEdit

Jungle giants craft 15’ long bows with 6’ long arrows and are capable of firing them rapidly. They dip the arrowheads in a paralyzing poison. Jungle giants prefer to strike from hiding. They will camouflage themselves in trees and strike at range with their bows before descending to the forest floor to finish off targets. Jungle giants have been known to use fallen tree trunks as clubs as well.

Habitat/SocietyEdit

Unlike most giants, jungle giants will cooperate with humans. Going so far as to participate in hunts with them. Using the humans’ greater numbers to drive prey into the giants perfectly laid ambushes. Jungle giants consider all animals of the jungle as prey. Jungle giants use the hides of their prey to cover their simple huts. Due to the smell of fresh meat that clings to jungle giant villages, large swarms of insects converge on their villages. As such a smaller number of giant dragonflies can be found living in jungle giant villages.

EcologyEdit

Jungle giants will show respect to fellow hunters no matter their size or race. When their numbers grow too large for their jungle homes to support, jungle giants will take to the surrounding grasslands in search prey. However their great height is a disadvantage in open areas forcing them to soon return to the jungles.
