In a way, Orlanth and his brothers are giant kin, too - Anaxial's Roster puts the Vadruding as another tribe of giants. The Founders, children of Storm Bull, definitely are gigantic, too, as is the manifestation of Waha, their youngest brother. Gorangi Vak is a giant hero...

It seems that beings closer to the energies of creation easily take on giant form. This applies both to Golden Age folk and to exceptional heroes fighting such forces.
