Jungle giants are a race of reclusive giants dwelling deep in rainforests.1


A jungle giant has dark, bark-like skin, decorated with numerous intricate tattoos that are etched into each giant as a rite of passage into adulthood. These tattoos also provide them with magical protection from harm. Adult jungle giants stand 17 feet tall and weigh 4,000 pounds.1


Jungle giants are not welcoming to visitors, despise civilisation, and are responsible for the fall of numerous lost cities deep in the jungle. Jungle giant tribes are matriarchal, ruled by an old warrior. Males defend the village, gather food, tend livestock, and raise children. They typically fight with sacred bows often passed down over generations from mother to daughter. To touch such a bow without permission is a mortal insult.1

On Golarion
