Earth-K's Malevolent Manifold Giants:
What are Manifold Giants?
Manifold Giants are gargantuan alien interdimensional humanoids of a fractured, warlike tribal civilization; they invaded Earth-K aboard vast spacebarges, and swiftly brought their new home under their authority.
Manifold Giants are all superpowered: in addition to being huge and crushingly strong, Manifold Giants may Wish Mirrors into existence and layer these Mirrors onto themselves (albeit only temporarily). As they're not human, however, Godgiants have no Exemplar.
Manifold Giants're also known as Godgiants and Void Giants. Placeholder.
Where do Manifold Giants come from?
Both the Manifold Giants of Earth-K and the Ogres of Earth-L are the same general ur-species, coming from the same mysterious source-reality. The mindless, blind, mute Ogres were drawn to the rich psychic energy of Earth-L; whereas the ill-tempered and cunning Manifold Giants chose the superhuman-free Earth-K: 'easy pickings' they claimed.
Where do Godgiants and Ogres come from? No one's sure. Ogres are nonsentient and barely cognizant of their surroundings, so no one can ASK them. As for the Void Giants, they are surprisingly touchy about the subject, claiming 'animals' drove them into the wider multiverse. Placeholder.
What are Mirrors? What is Wishing?
A Mirror is a 'What if?' version of a Godgiants, that is layered onto the existing Void Giant. Mirrors are often very different from the actual titan in question; many are outrageously, with radically different traits, often essentially becoming a totally new character. A Mirror is a 'Dimensional' descriptor effect.
A Wish is the act itself of drawing up a Mirror. Wishing takes a move action, and can only be sustained for so long, before the Mirror 'breaks' and the Wish unravels to nothingness. Wishing is a 'Time' descriptor effect.
What OTHER powers do Manifold Giants possess?
As the name suggests, Manifold Giants are enormous, and're immensely physically strong; many are nigh-immune to harm of nearly any kind.
Plus: Godgiants are aliens, and thus possess staggeringly advanced technology---though they possess extremely few Demimachines, for some inexplicable reason.
Who---or WHAT---leads the Manifold Giants?
The Ogrefather---also Earth-K's imperiex---leads the Void Giant race, though his rule is far from secure; Godgiants chafe at their sire's governance, and're constantly seeking to topple him. Considering that he's an imperiex and a Manifold Giant, the Ogrefather's Wishes and Mirrors are simply epic to behold---meaning any coup d'etat has quite an uphill battle to fight!
The Ogrefather has a mate, however she is nowhere NEAR as powerful as he: known as the Ogremother, this lumpen troll of a female is thuggish, brutal and dimwitted----all admirable qualities in the eyes of a potential Void Giant mate!
Do Manifold Giants have a religion?
No---they refuse to acknowledge any Being or beings greater than themselves. They do have a creation myth, however, which depicts Voidgiants and Ogres alike being born by 'tearing free from the earth', before being 'driven off into cold night's embrace' by 'riotous animals that know not their places'.
Are Manifold Giants in any way related to Earth-Z's earthhaunts?
No. Godgiants are from elsewhere in the Forever Tree; earthhaunts are from the deepest reaches of the Beyond.
Do Manifold Giants have any alliances and/or enmities with Apkallu, Starvampires and Tlolkku?
Indeed, they do! Of course, Godgiants view these three 'races' with unmasked disdain even as they envy these aliens're powers.
Void Giants are very uneasy about Apkallu, as a fear exists Apkallu might learn to 'become' devils from Void Giant legendary. Placeholder.
What do Sungods think of Manifold Giants?
What are Half-Giants?
The hybrid offspring of Manifold Giants and human concubines, Half-Giants are the 'superhumans' of Earth-K and are covered in McGuffin greater detail, elsewhere.
