The Hrimthur (Not Vadrudi in general) are described as not being related to Giants. Personally I think that Thryk, their founder, was the son of Vadrus and a Giantess.

I'm not sure where this comes from. Gorangi Vak is described in History of the Heortling Peoples (p83) as an Orlanthlander sent out by the priests on a ridiculously deadly task (ie tame a sky bull with a stick and rope) so he would get himself killed.
