"Giants... they've been extinct for ages. Anyone actually seen the one on Undvik."
—Geralt to Crach upon hearing about Myrhyff[src]

A giant, sometimes also referred to as a titan, is a large, strong creature that usually inhabits mountains, but can also be found in other areas.[1]

By 1272 only a handful of them are still alive, making many people believe they're just a myth and even most witchers believe they've gone extinct.[2] Even though they are quite sentient, all attempts to communicate with them have ended in vain.[3]

Behavior Edit

In Beauclair Palace, there is a tapestry depicting a fight between the giants and cyclopses while another shows a titan trying to kill a dragon.[4] This may suggest that giants are highly aggressive against others, even if they too are ogroids.[5]

He looked at a tapestry depicting a fight between a titan and a dragon. The titan, standing solidly on two left legs, was trying to break dragon's jaw, and the dragon looked none too pleasent about it.

Trivia Edit

  • Pawel-mielniczuk-giant
    A giant was supposed to appear in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as an opponent with his own bestiary entry, unique combat tactics, and other features. In CD Projekt RED's 2014 leaked materials, he's described as a "Giant human approx. 4 meters high, quite intelligent. Lives in the forests."[6] Character Art Director, Paweł Mielniczuk, even created a "one hour speed sculpts during production practice sessions."[7] However, the giant was removed later in development. It's also possible that he was simply postponed for expansions and dubbed Golyat.
