Giant Clan

The Giant Clan is one the five major races in Britannia. They were the first of the five races to come into existence and it's said that they have battle prowess and fighting spirit unmatched by any of the other races. About three thousand years prior to the story, they formed an alliance together with the goddess, fairy, and human races in a war against the Demon Clan for which they were victorious against. Though they won peace, the giants have been slowly been declining in numbers steadily over many years due to their battle-loving ways.


    Tropes pertaining to the Giant Clan in general 

  • Decade Dissonance: While other races have an overall medieval fantasy aesthetic to their culture and appearance, giants on the other hand practically look like primitive cavemen. Most commonly wear primitive fur garments and the Megadozer village in particular lives within the caverns of a massive mountain.
  • Dishing Out Dirt / Extra-ore-dinary: The Giants' exclusive ability Creation allows them to control and mold earth and metal.
  • Dying Race: Over the course of many years, giant numbers have been slowly and steadily declining, thanks to their battle-loving ways.
  • Elemental Shapeshifter: Heavy Metal is a giant exclusive technique that allows them to hardened their bodies to earth based elements. This differs between individual giants which range from extremely strong metal to weak calcite. Of note, the ancestor of the Giant Clan, Dolor, supposedly could harden his body to the strength of diamonds.
  • Long-Lived: Giants have long lifespans. For reference, Diane is approximately 750 years old and still young by giant standards.
  • Made of Iron: A trait that's expected from a battle-loving race. That said, not all giants are this.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger: They're long living beings capable of earth based abilities.
  • Going Commando: A Q&A from Chapter 268 reveals that similar to fairies, giants mostly don't have a concept of underwear. It goes further to cite as an example that in page 124 of Volume 19, Matrona was actually wearing nothing underneath.
  • Proportional Aging: Best evident with Diane who was noticeably very young during the centuries she had spent with King in the past, and at 750 years old would be 15 if she were human, giants age much slower with their longer lifespans.
  • Proud Warrior Race: The Giant Clan's culture revolves around battle to the point of being a deconstruction of the trope. They greatly believe in victory in battle. Defeat to them is the same as death. That said they believe dying in the midst of battle is honorable. Living after being defeated is considered a greater shame. To supplement their love for battle, they frequently offer their services to others as mercenaries. This however occasionally gets them into battles with other giants from other villages who sold their services to the other side, rapidly depleting the Giant population by having them kill each other using their own warrior code and ruining any solidarity among their strongest warriors by having them duke it out. For those giants that don't want to fight, they're instead expected by the rest to have children that would take up their place.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Younger looking giants are actually several centuries old.
    • Diane who's 750 years old according to the first Fanbook has the appearance of a 15 year old human girl.
    • According to the second Fanbook, Matrona and Dolores are 820 and 720 respectively. A Q&A from Chapter 198 further adds that Matrona would be around 24-25 if she were a human.
  • Shown Their Work: In certain British legends, Britain was originally ruled by a race of giants. Said giants lost control of the land many years later when their numbers had become too few.
  • Statuesque Stunner: The giantesses so far shown are all this.

Individual Giants

    Dolor 

Dolor

The legendary ancestor of the giants who's even called the god of the Giant Clan by some people. He supposedly could harden his body to diamond. He also was a majestic dancer who created a certain dance routine the giants still practice. According to the legends of the Giant Clan, when he danced, it was a truly majestic and beautiful sight as he manipulated the very ground itself and anyone who saw it was overwhelmed.

The warrior chief of the Megadozer village. She was an extremely stern leader who believes in the Giant Clan's battle-loving traditions. She was the teacher of Diane and Diane's friend Dolores. She in particular believed strongly in Diane's potential and aimed to be make Diane the greatest Giant warrior ever to exist.

Sixteen years prior to the story, Matrona and Diane were targeted by some Liones knights who aimed to make a name for themselves by killing Matrona and Diane. Although Diane survived the scheme, it was assumed that Matrona had died after she was struck in the right leg by a poison tipped ballista bolt. In reality, she was saved by Zarpa, a barbarian that Diane spared prior to the incident with the knights. Having been saved, her overall outlook on things changed.

In the present, Matrona reunites with Diane upon saving the latter from the Ten Commandments.


  • Amazonian Beauty: She has a noticeably muscular proportioned body with prominent abs and is rather attractive.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Zarpa cut her poisoned leg off before the poison could spread to the rest of her body.
  • Artificial Limbs: In the present, her right leg, the one that was struck by a poisonous bolt in the past, is replaced with a wooden peg one.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Matrona shows her midriff in both of the attires she has shown wearing.
  • Big Damn Heroes: She saves Diane from two of the Ten Commandments.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: She supposedly died in Diane's arms. Subverted later when it's revealed that she survived.
  • Disney Death: She supposedly died from poisoning only to turn out to be saved by some unlikely help.

  • Interspecies Romance: She's speculated by Diane to be in one with Zarpa the human barbarian who saved her in the past.
  • Ironic Name: Matrona's name means "mother". In the past, this was ironic, as she was extremely tough and didn't act very motherly towards those she trained. In the present though, it became more appropriate with her change of personality.
  • Mama Bear: Hurting her adoptive children is good way to get her mad.
  • Maternally Challenged: Diane's parents asked Matrona to raise her. However, Matrona knew nothing about raising kids and only could teach Diane how to fight. This and Diane's reluctance to embrace their Proud Warrior Race culture made their relationship difficult. She however gets better at taking care of kids after surviving her ordeal in the past.
  • Nubile Savage: In the past, she was basically an attractive giant muscular cavewoman who values battles.
  • Parental Substitute: She acts and is seen as a mother by Zarpa's kids, Zor and Della.

  • Red Baron: The Fang of the Great Earth, Matrona.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Matrona's name seems to be based on Matrona, a Celtic goddess who many scholars believe maybe the origin of Morgan le Fay of the Arthurian myths.
  • Rugged Scar: She has rather prominent scars that highlight that she's tough.
  • Significant Wardrobe Shift: Her past outfit reflected her harsh personality back then that didn't accept anything other the Giant's Proud Warrior Race culture. After surviving her ordeal, she changed her outfit into a less barbaric one reflecting her change of personality into a more accepting one.
  • Taking the Bullet: She shielded Diane from a poisoned arrow.
  • Tank-Top Tomboy: Her new outfit includes a tank top which she's first revealed with as he pommels two of the Ten Commandments with ease.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: She wears her hair like this.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Her seing saved by Zarpa and helping raise his kids softened her rugged personality.
  • Underboobs: The underparts of her breasts weren't covered by her fur top in the past.
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: Matrona allows Della to rest in between her breasts like a baby animal.
  • Worthy Opponent: She considers Dumblebas this before and after she kills him.

A slightly chubby giantess who was a friend of Diane. She was a timid giantess who didn't like fighting. She didn't have alot of battle prowess and fighting scared her to the point that she even cowered from some humans rather than fight them. She wanted to leave the Megadozer village as she didn't want to fight anymore, however due to there apparently being no other place for giants, she decided to instead stay. Unfortunately for her, she died whilst on a job.

  • Fat Best Friend: She was the slightly chubby best friend of Diane.
  • Fat Girl: She's not disproportionately overweight, but she's noticeably a bit chubby in appearance. However, she was also quite insecure that was more over her disdain for battle, rather than anything else.
  • Ironic Name: She appears to have a feminine form of the name of the Giant Clan's ancestor, Dolor. Dolor supposedly could harden his body to diamond. Dolores on the other hand, was very weak both mentally and physically.
  • Meaningful Name: Dolores means sorrowful, sorrows, pain. She's basically a wobbie with what she suffered through.
  • Posthumous Character: She's long dead by the start of the series proper having been killed unceremoniously off-screen by a bunch of human bandits when she was hired as a mere guard.
  • Weight Woe: The second Fanbook reveals that she has issues with her weight as rather than a number listed down for her weight, "It's embarrasing" is written instead.
