Nephilim are eleven feet tall humanoids who can be mistaken for giants for often than not. They are the offspring of a son of a god and a human female, which is considered a cursed result of a forbidden union and something they are hunted for.
Being the living proof of this condemned affair they have been hunted since anyone can remember, and their numbers have greatly diminished over the years. Still, those still alive have found their place and the population is steadily on the rise once again.
Despite mostly living isolated lives, many offer themselves as mercenaries, soldiers, and even guards, earning coin and, more importantly, prestige that makes their names known, names such as Zasbe, Guzyamo, Nozagruen, Enqiko, and Jagerieth.

These large humanoids look very much like giants, standing over ten feet tall and weighing more than a thousand pounds, who can live for over five hundred years. They are descendants of a god’s son and a human female, a result many considered cursed and the reason why both mortals and gods hunt them.
