> The Founders, children of Storm Bull, definitely are gigantic, too,

I think that they are gigantic only in the sense of large, not giantish. But the Praxians are ignorant of much of the basis of their own mythology. It has to do with their spirits being the surviving remnants of something that didn't really survive as a whole. Waha's followers put a gloss on things to make them comprehensible.

> as is the manifestation of Waha, their youngest brother.

He's a half-brother if you take the relationships literally, which I don't (because, among other things, it's anti-MGF).

If he's literally a giant, I would have expected the Praxians to know it. He was physically present more recently than Julius Caesar and we know what he looked like. A Waha (though a human with magic) later accompanied other giants, and the Praxians didn't call them both giants. So I don't think he's a giant. But if MGF in YG required it, it would have to be true.
