the Cabrakan descend from the Primordial Giant Lord Cabrakan from whom they take their name, apparently made from the very essence of the Earth. Most of them are used for menial tasks, requiring muscles, strength or stamina. They don’t really fit in situations where guile, stealth or finesse is required but look just like overgrown humans, and are somewhat social and talkative, sometimes even erudite. Lesser Cabrakan range from seven to fifteen feet in height, and are common enough to be able to track and hunt young Heroes en masse. They also tend to be direct in their actions, and profoundly stupid. Elder Cabrakan are much larger – twenty feet or more – and are generally far more intelligent than their younger, weaker kin.
Of their Primordial Ancestor, Lord Cabrakan is said to have died when the sun and moon tricked him into eating a flock of poisoned birds. Whether or not this is true is unknown, but the slow-witted Primordial has not been seen since before the coming of the fifth Sun.
