About this mod

Usually secluded in remote camps in the icy mountains, or living in the faraway caves of the tribal clans, the female Giants are a rare but equally potentially fatal sight as are their husbands.

"Usually secluded in remote camps on the icy mountains, or in the faraway caves of the tribal clans, the female Giants are a rare but equally potentially fatal sight as are their husbands. Observation and study of Giantesses is not easy task for scholars, since they live in places of extremely difficult access, and the few that venture down to the Giants' grazing fields, do so only to those located in the snowy peaks, and are always well protected by the old males.

Not that a Giantess cannot defend herself, after all, despite being a little smaller and having relatively less physical power than a full-grown male, a Giantess still exceeds the dimensions of the largest nord by a huge margin. Nonetheless, they usually stay away from the open fields, and especially from the populous tundra and the reasons for this behaviour are unknown. Several theories do exist, among them one simply says that Giantesses exist in very small numbers, and the remaining few are very well protected by the clans to ensure future generations, while other theory says that they are protected from kidnappings by hostile human tribes, such as the Forsworns, who have a particular interest in capturing Giants, and using them in the dark experiments of the Hagravens. Anyway, the most accepted theory is that the Giants hide their females for religious reasons.

When sighted, Giantesses are always depicted wearing much more clothing, made of fur and leather, and other accoutrements, in comparison to males, who often wear only a simple leather thong. This could indicate a social taboo in relation to the female body, which would be reinforced by their society habit to isolate and protect the females. In any case, it is a fact that Giantesses are hardly ever seen in the lower lands of Skyrim, with the exception of the rare and dangerous sightings of Giantess Matriarchs: these females of high social standing in the society of the Giants are considerably bigger than the males, and an even greater danger than these, and can be seen traveling between the male's grazing fields on the plains. Scholars believe that they function as a kind of leader in these clans, and that they oversee the development of the Giant Younglings brought by the males to the tundra, aiming at their development.

As mentioned, the Giantesses
 use great ornamentation, composed of bones, feathers, fur and leather, in addition to also displaying tribal marks made by scarification, just like the males. They are generally fatter, and use smaller clubs in combat. When spotted in the fields, they are seen to be usually responsible for the production of mammoth cheese, and for cooking the food in the campfires, in addition to weaving the clothes for the males."

So far no incompatibilities have been found between this mod and other mods.
(OBS- If by chance when installing several of Mihail's mods at the same time you are asked about files overwriting those of other Mihail mods or other authors mods, don't worry because they are just the same files shared between mods. I recommend that on these occasions always give preference to the files contained in my mods, and among mine always give preference to the mod you are installing last.)

The Mihail Monsters and Animals series aims to create and make available to the community the most complete set of creatures for TES 5: Skyrim, implemented in an immersive and unique way, with respect to the pillars of lore. Instead of pathetically just throwing models and textures in the game reusing 100% vanilla mechanics, the creatures made by Mihail have uniqueness and extreme zeal in their idealization and implementation, which will provide you with an experience that you have never had before in this area.
