Status

Half-giants are beings with some, but not a total, amount of giant heritage or blood, as well as part human blood. For instance, a human might have a Giant mother and a wizard father or vice versa. However, the logistics of a normal-sized witch bearing a half-giant baby are difficult if not impossible to imagine, let alone the logistics of this sort of conception.

Characteristics and appearance

All known Half-giants had magical blood, and were capable of producing magic, traits they received from their witch or wizard ancestors. It is unknown as to whether they will still have magic if the human parent was a Muggle; they may receive magic from the giant parent, but as there have been no known non-magical half-giants a definite answer cannot be deduced. From their giant family they usually retained a large height and build [1], they were usually considered extremely tall by human standards and short by giant standards.

Oppression

Many Half-giants have been discriminated against, as with werewolves, centaurs, and other half-humans. This prejudice was notoriously demonstrated by Death Eaters, some Pure-bloods, and Dolores Umbridge.[2]

Known Half-giants

Olympe

Half-giant Olympe Maxime.
