Cloud Giant Name Generator & Guide

As the young dragon landed on top of the mountain, the sky-skinned giant dispersed the mist. “Welcome, dragon, welcome indeed. I’m sorry to say today you encountered Cletis, which means this is your last fight. I expect the best from you, though it won’t make any difference.” – the giant said, his voice as cold as the wind as he stared deep into the creature’s eyes.

Standing about 18 feet tall and weighing around 5000 pounds, Cloud Giants wear fine clothing and jewelry, and prefer to live on the highest mountain peaks or even higher if possible. They rarely talk to others and so think very highly of themselves.

They live in small individual families but are known to unify as a temporary clan should the need arise. While they don’t need much gold and gems, they are very fond of the jewelry made out of those materials to prove the family’s worth.

Cloud Giants consider themselves to have the highest status there is, especially compared to the rest of the world. Therefore, their name is one of the things that defines them very much, and Cidhor, Logir, and Slarog are some of the examples.

  • Setor
  • Zodor
  • Fikkaros

Living in small family groups, their ego is what stands in the way of greater accomplishments. However, when more of them do manage to unite under one banner, the result can be devastating. They can summon fog and mist, something that their dire lion pets can also take advantage of. A Cloud Giant is a truly deadly creature, capable of great things, and they certainly deserve a praiseworthy name.
