|~ A person describing their encounter with the creatures.|
The Morning Walkers are a strange group of Giants, drawn by horror artist Trevor Henderson. What distinguished them from other Giants is that they are deathly silent, except for the few words that they mutter and prefer to stalk their victims in the mist, rather than attacking right away.
The Morning Walkers depict four different massive humanoid entities, standing motionless in a mist-filled parking lot. Each of the four monstrosities have different shapes and sizes, some being shorter and taller than the other. Their proportions are similar to a human's, although heavily distorted. We can only see their silhouettes due to the mist, so we will base the description off of those alone. From here on out, we will refer to the creatures as Walkers A, B, C, and D, in order of left to right (our perspective).
Walker A is a large humanoid Giant that has a rather tall torso with broad, asymmetrical shoulders that connect to the arms. These arms, despite having strange shoulders, are still somewhat proportionate to the arms of a human, except for the creature's hands, which are quite large, with the right one (its perspective) being slightly larger than the other. Its legs are more-or-less the same, although it does not have oversized feet.
Finally, the head of the titan is most interesting part of it, as it seems to be a massive organ that is extremely disproportionate to the rest of the creature. It is unknown what caused this, or if this is even the head of the creature, as it may be some sort of growth. It also seems to have difficulty controlling this body part since it would appear to be drooping backwards, lopsided. The creature overall appears to be awkwardly crouched down slightly, further giving the appearance that it is struggling.
Strangely enough, Walker B appears to be some sort of a variation of Walker A's appearance. It is very tall, definitely much taller than Walker A, as its limbs and torso are even longer and thinner than those of the aforementioned Walker. It has small, but symmetrical shoulders, leading to extremely disproportionate arms. Its left arm is considerably longer than the right, as it seemingly reaches just below the creature's knees, while the other arm only reaches the thighs; the left hand also seems much larger than the right, but both of these hands posses sharp claws at the end of their thin fingers. The legs however, seem rather normal, if not very thin and straight.
As previously mentioned, the creature's appearance is somewhat of a variation of Walker A; this is seen most clearly from its head. The head of this giant is unusually tiny compared to its massive body, as complete contrast to Walker A's appearance. The head almost looks like what the neck of the titan would be if it did have a larger head.
Not much is visible from Walker C aside from its legs. This one in particular is unique from the others as it appears to be a tripodal creature, rather than bipedal. All three of its legs are evenly spaced out with large gaps, and are completely straight, much like Walker B's. They are also a bit thicker than the legs of the other Walkers.
Walker D is the most animal-like of the group in terms of appearance. Its torso and head have completely joined together, forming a single large, pointy organ that resembles a spear head. The only 'normal' part of its torso is the stomach area, which is very thin. It has large hips and legs that are thicker than the first two walkers, especially at the thighs, which also have a large gap between them. The arms are fairly normal with no visible sharp claws or size inconsistencies. They are bent inwards at the elbow.
While there is scarce information that has been directly given to us about these creatures' behavior, we can make an assumption that gives us an idea of how they may behave. This assumption being that the Walkers are actually members of the Giants. If their massive size is not evidence enough, their appearance is also signified by a thick mist surrounding the area, a trait shared by a number of Giants.
The humanoid appearance and surprisingly short size of these Giants imply that they are a group of Destruction Giants, which only kill humans and destroy civilization, rather than ascending them. Walker C may be an exception, as we cannot see its true size, although this is unlikely since Collection Giants and Destruction Giants do tend to keep their distance from each other.
What's interesting to not is that these Giants in particular have a different method of hunting than other Destruction Giants, who typically move rampant, causing destruction in their wake. The Walkers actually stalk their victims prior to attacking, using their manifesting mist to their advantage by cloaking them.
It is unknown why they do this, as it does not seem to give them any sort of advantage, and is actually much more inefficient that immediately attacking the victim. It is possible that the Giants do this only for sadistic fun, as they do show signs of intelligence.
The main ability of the Morning Walkers is obviously their massive size. They would be able to grab and kill humans from far away with ease due to their human-like hands, although their thin, lanky build would give them difficulty in destroying buildings, if they choose to do so.
Its humanoid body structure would also help them to move rather quickly and quietly when running, which helps them stalk their pray easier. Walker D may also be able to crawl on all fours for additional speed, though it seems it prefers to walk as a biped. The mist that surrounds them make them surprisingly stealthy for their size, hiding them in plain sight as they stalk their targets
Like most Giants, the Morning Walkers are able to function properly despite not possessing any visible eyes or other normal senses, so it is possible that it also has some sort of additional supernatural or enhanced senses. In addition to that, Trevor has also confirmed that they have the ability to talk, which means that they might be more intelligent, possibly even sapient compared to other Giants. This would also explain why they seem to like stalking people, as it makes the kill more enjoyable for them.
All of these perks, combined with the fact that they work in a team make them very formidable creatures. Most of the time, you wouldn't even notice them until its too late, unlike other Giants which give you time to escape due to their obvious presence.
- Aside from the fact that they are Giants, they might be closely related to the Misty Guests, more specifically, Misty Guest 3.
- They might also be related to Breaking News, given their similar humanoid appearance.
- They are one of the few creatures that can actually talk in a human language.
- They are also the only known Giants that can talk.
- They are one of the few times that multiple Giants are shown in a single image.
- When a commenter stated "I feel like they would be deathly silent so you wouldn’t know if they were following you unless you looked", Trevor replied by saying that "I almost put something like that in the description!".
- Trevor has stated that each of them only say one word at a time, forming sentences.
