These “medium-sized” humanoids have all the characteristics and maybe blood as giants. Tough skin, thick sinewy muscles and necks, and bad hygiene to be sure. Though, somehow they seem more intelligent. Indeed they have been seen leading giant bands and other enemy troops. Some in Medus seemed to wield a great deal of power over the other rabble.
For game purposes, they can be targeted as giants despite their short stature (seven feet tall or so!).
