Cyclopes are ten foot tall giants with large mouths and a single eye. While the eye denies them any depth perception, it is said they can predict the future of anyone they can observe for a few seconds, even determine one’s fate after a mere glance.

The amount of daily food they need to consume is astonishing, and it is no wonder only one of their kind can be found in a certain region. This also means they forget about any ambitions they might have as searching for food takes all their free time.

With time, some turned to cannibalism, some to bloodthirstiness fueled by prolonged hunger, and some managed to become certain spiritual leaders to their kind where their actions made their names known, names like Bandys, Lysara, and Kaesy.

These peculiar one-eyed giants are monsters that found their place in many stories, all across the world, whose viciousness and hunger are both astonishing and terrifying at the same time. Standing about nine to ten feet tall, weighing well over 500 pounds, these hulking figures use their single eye to predict one’s fate, although the ability becomes less potent as the time goes on. While living in isolation, they could be united under a common cause should a charismatic leader arise from their ranks, ready to lead them to greatness. Think about where the creature was born, where did they grow up, how was their childhood, what goals and ambitions they might have, and create a name worthy of the insatiable hunger following their every step.
