Monster memory[]

Fomorian giants are shunned even by the other giants. Their bodies are horribly distorted, with sagging ears, differently shaped eyes, hunchbacks and hair that grows in spots where it doesn't belong. Their skin is a pale white. Fomorian giants dress in dirty rags and carry a stench of decay with them. But don't take them on lightly, for even with their horrible looks, they are formidable fighters.
