Towering over all of the other races of Thestra stands the Lesser Giant. As the largest and strongest race on Thestra they are often viewed by others with a sense of awe and wonderment. They rarely leave their mountain home of Halgarad, which they share with the Varanjar, and even less frequently wish to involve themselves in the affairs of other races.
However, the undead invasion has forced them to begin to change their culture of solitude in order to survive. Though they are safe for now in the northeastern most mountains of Thestra, they are much smarter than they are often given credit for and have the foresight to see that what appears to be the other races' problem now will eventually be their problem later.
Lesser Giants are hard workers, much preferring to labor with their hands than over a scroll or book and have a simple, uncomplicated view of life.
The recent invasion has severely interrupted the Lesser Giants' typically uncomplicated lives. Uprooted from their simple life of hard work and close knit community, the lesser giants have ran headlong into the fray wielding heavy steal and weaving their simple magic. They have been known to be Warriors, Dread Knights, Shamans and Druids.
Lesser Giants are a playable race in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.
