The Chronicles of Foxton
Chiefs of the Giant Clans
The three great chiefs of the Giants of the Platinum Hills
There are a couple of dozen Giant clans living in the hills and forests at any given time. They range in size from 5 to 30 members. There are three “major” clans in the hills right now, with numbers approaching 30.
There’s the Bear-Hunter clan, led by a Giant named Sinja. Sinja is relatively young, has several wives, and is full of fire. He is one of the ones the Baron is worried about; any action by the humans against his clan or their allies might get him riled up.
The second is the Fire-Lighter clan, led by Orda. Orda is an older Giant; he was one of Nonsra’s sub-chiefs during the Giant Wars. He lost an eye and part of his hand in those battles. Old age has mellowed him quite a bit. He’s well-respected among the Giants. If you can ally with him, he might be able to use his influence to sway the other clans. OTOH, he might still carry a grudge from the “old days,” so be careful.
Finally, there’s the Snow Mountain clan, led by Zind. Zind is crafty, possibly the smartest of the Giant clan-leaders. It’s said he even knows some thaumaturgy. Many Giants view him with a sort of terrified awe due to his ability to out-think anyone who opposes him. Another one to be careful of – do not underestimate him; he’s smarter than your average Giant.
There are a lot of other clans, but they tend to be smaller and less influential. Most of them are allied with one or more of the big clans.
