Giants are an ancient non-human species that lived alongside the Children of the Forest and the First Men. They are approximately 12 feet tall and are capable of feats of incredible strength. Along with the magic of the Children of the Forest, Giants are said to have assisted Bran the Builder in constructing the Wall. They still speak the Old Tongue of the Children and the First Men. Today, it is unclear how many remain, but it is thought that all live in the deep North, beyond the Wall.
