Storm giants were extremely intelligent giants who lived on cloud islands. Their vision was adapted to underwater conditions, where they saw equally as well as they did in the air.[7] They spoke Jotunuvar and Jotun.[8]

DescriptionEdit

A storm giant stood about 24 feet tall and weighed over 3,000 lbs. They tended to wear fine tunics and belted sandals. When they entered battle, storm giants donned bronze breastplates and Corinthian helmets.[citation needed]

There were two ethnicities of storm giants; most had pale, light green skin and dark green hair and eyes, but a small number had violet skin, dark blue hair, and silver eyes.[9]

Storm giants were the most powerful of giant-kind; their power was near that of the ancient titans. Much like a violent storm, a storm giant was prone to sudden bouts of violence and mood swings. They were brutal and dangerous foes who wielded the power of weather and could hurl lightning with a gesture.[citation needed]

Storm giants made their homes on isolated islands or along the coastal regions of the world. Despite their temperamental behavior, these beings were the most civilized of the giant races. They would even engage in trade with communities of small folk.[citation needed]

AbilitiesEdit

Storm giants were responsible for throwing lightning bolts across mountain peaks.[10]

SocietyEdit

The head of a storm giant ordning was called a "paramount".[11]

In storm giant society, any act of mercy or charity towards a sentient being was seen as good.[12]
