Goliath, 2nd Variant (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
The goliath is a brute of a creature, utilising its hind legs and its arms for both animalistic or a humanoid stance. Its large back is drenched in spikes and a deep grey coating over its muscular anatomy. The goliath has knifed claws for its hands making hunting easier and a mouth that consists of a firey red glow and chunky mandibles only on the lower jaw. His eyes also light up with the same red glow, which are pushed further into the sockets to protect them. Their mighty strength allows them to jump great distances and perform unruly tasks. His armoured body gives him protection from his environment giving him a rock-like structure from a distance. Goliath also has a medium lengthen tail with a small abundance of spikes on the end but isn't very thick and is used for balance.
From the planet sheer, goliaths are big brutes that roam their lands and hunt the natural environment. Scientists haven't given a direct explanation to where they come from or how they breed, but they are known to be deadly predators and have caused fatal injury to most creatures they interact with that are not their own.
Goliaths are single monsters and fight and breed by themselves, however, when the circumstances come to it they can fight in small packs in order for their race to survive therefore they are not cannibals. Goliaths nest in closed areas and hunt anything that crosses them, making them deadly wild beasts. They may fight in a team with other races but this is highly uncommon unless it comes to their survival.
Like all monsters, goliaths are genderless, although characters refer to it as "he" and "it". While the eggs in nest hatch goliaths, it is unclear how the eggs are produced so there is no distinct gender.
