Giants are huge, normally ugly humanoids. Many have a taste for human flesh, though by no means all of them do. The man-eating kind tend to give the rest a bad name, and contribute to the race's lack of trust and anger.
It is next to impossible to influence a giant's actions or emotions by spells. Many giants are capable of casting magic as well...such as necromancy.
