CREATURE: JOTUNN

440px-Giants_and_Freia

I have been doing research on Norse mythology for my fantasy book and I came across something interesting. In numerous myths were a species of giants called Jotunns. Jotunns  were often affiliated with the elements such as fire, water, earth, ice, and so forth. For example, Loki the Norse god of mischief’s biological people were the Frost Giants, which were a subspecies of Jotunn. I have already decided to name one of the creatures in my fantasy book after one of the elemental Jotunns. Also, I am now thinking of including a creature that represents the Jotunns giants as a whole, which are giants in general that could range between twenty or thirty feet tall. However, the giants I am imagining will not be the typical giants you would expect to find in traditional fantasy stories.
