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.

Characteristics and appearanceEdit

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. They also retained the natural resistance to most types of magical attacks from their giant blood.


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 others like Dolores Umbridge.[2] Pure giants also look down on half-giants due to their inferior sizes, as it is a giant's pride to give birth to large children.[3]

Half-giants are apparently rare, as Hagrid never thought he would meet another one prior to Madame Maxime. This suggests that the bonding between humans and giants are indeed rare, seeing animosity for giants as it is. Maxime desperately kept her heritage hidden to protect herself from prejudice.[3]
