A race of powerful 4-armed giants, their blood linked to a primordial being associated with the sun.


Sol-duhvaan are very diverse individuals, however some trends tends be more common than others. Sol-duhvaan are usually refined and civilized, especially compared to many of their giant kin. Many Sol-duhvaan are hotblooded and quick to act, but also somewhat reserved and shy. While many Sol-duhvaan tend to act recklessly, many have their hotblood tempered with patience and understanding. Finally Sol-duhvaan tend to be likable and passionate, most follow a single goal throughout their entire life. This does not stop many Sol-duhvaan to be careless and relaxed.

Physical Description[edit]

Typically standing about 9 feet tall, Sol-duhvaan are more human-like than most of their cousin. Their facial traits tend to be softer and more refined, their body is almost always well muscled and defined. Unlike most giant, the Sol-duhvaan have two pairs of arms, one located slightly under the first. Sol-duhvaan have skin tone varienting from golden to bright orange and even dim red, their hair color can be anything from red to black, with many have white, orange or even yellow hairs. The most common eye color is bright orange and other fiery color, but dull brown and hazel are not uncommon. Sol-duhvaan are typically lighter than most other giants.


Sol-duhvaan are not aggressive with other races, unless other race deliberately attack them. Individuals however may develop hatred and grudge against other races, and may use their great size and abilities to repress or even exterminate them. However these individual are the exceptions rather than the rule. Most Sol-duhvaan communities are peaceful toward outsider, their individual to absorbed by their own goals and passion to wage aggressive war of territory. Sol-duhvaan are usually curious about other races, and more than willing to live among them.


Sol-duhvaan tend to be good aligned, but also tend to gravitate toward the extremes. Evil Sol-duhvaan are not rare however, simply uncommon.


Sol-duhvaan prefer jungle, desert and other hot locations to establish a civilization. Many also like mountainous region, making great civilization close to the clouds and sun. Their nations are usually open to outsider, but not always.


Sol-duhvaan have no unified religion, some worship the so called Sun Titan, a primordial beings whose the entire race come from. Others can areligious or worship gods that support their goals and personality, this trend lead their civilization to have very divided religious outlook. However Sol-duhvaan tend to worhsip zealously, leading to many conflict among opposed faiths.


Sol-duhvaan speak giant, their dialect is usually very advanced for giants.


Sol-duhvaan names are no different between male and female, for them gender has little importance and this is especially true during their naming ritual.

They most often choose to name themsleves in giant.
