The wildfire cameras caught them even before the reports started coming in. By then, they were everywhere.
~ The news report showing these giants

The Wildfire Giants are a group of nine or more mysterious giant creatures made by artist Trevor Henderson.

Wildfire Giant 1 - Hexapod Giant

Appearance

The Giant depicted in the first picture is a gigantic, four-armed bipedal creature, seemingly humanoid in appearance.

The body of the creature is quite large and burly, especially at the chest region. It has an unusually short and thick neck, which connects to the contrarily proportioned head, which is noticeable smaller and stumpier than the rest of its body. It has extremely long, slender legs which have two knee joints like a human would.

The upper arms appear to be connected from slightly above the creature's shoulders, which almost blends in as a part of the neck. It appears to be forming an A-pose of some sort. The the lower arms appear to be hanging down directly from the creature's shoulders, where they would normally be. They are positioned dangling straight down. All of the arms are about the same length.

We do not know the color of the creature due to the photo being taken in black and white. We also do not see any of the facial features of the beast (if it has any) due to the quality of the image.

The creature appears to be standing as tall as twice and slightly more the height of the trees it is next to. Assuming that those are Pine Trees (which grow at an average of 100 Feet/30.48 Meters), we can estimate this monster’s height to be around 220 Feet or 67.05 Meters.

Behavior

Although the creature depicted in the images is of an enormous size, it is not fully confirmed if it is actually a member of The Giants, the group of titanic creatures that have invaded Earth from a second Moon with the goal of observing human behavior, ascending worthy humans to salvation or to eradicate unworthy humans and mass cause destruction.

The Hexapod Giant (as well as its peers) appear to fall into the third category or Giants, given that it does not appear to possess the height or means of ascending people nor does it have any noticeable eyes to watch over people. The creature does however appear to be observing the human civilization below, though it is likely just looking for targets before an attack, or maybe even admiring the amount of destruction it has caused, suggesting signs of intelligence.

As we can see from the caption, it was spotted by wildfire cameras even before people accounted to have witnessed them to the authorities. By then, the Giants were already high in number and roaming around the California countryside as well as larger human settlements like cities. What is interesting to note is that the news report did not appear to question the appearance or nature of these creatures, suggesting that the other Giants were already roaming the Earth when these ones arrived. Though, the fact that they needed to report their appearance suggests that these ones in particular were the first instances of Giants in California.

Abilities

Obviously, the creature’s enormous size would allows for it to cause large amounts of destruction on properties and buildings alike. It would also be effective and efficient at doing so due to its four arms, which would also be able to be used to grab dozens of people at a time. It is unknown if it eats these people, or merely kills them en masses.

Given the creature’s proclivity to appear in forests and being caught near wildfires, it is possible that the creature may have some sort of pyrokinesis or other fire-related abilities, similarly to the Fire Giant.

Wildfire Giant 2 - Root Head

Appearance

The Giant depicts yet another enormous humanoid creature observably, this time being noticeably taller and slimmer than the first.

It has a very thin, almost skeletal structure with dried out skin and lumpy bones. It has two very long arms which reach down to its feet. The legs of this creature are surprisingly thick and muscular, given its overall structure. Its limbs are comparable to that of a regular human in terms of location and joints.

The most interesting part of this creature though, is its massive, root-like “head”. In place of a neck and head, this creature possesses numerous thin spikes, resembling the roots or stem of a plant. These roots vary in length, thickness and also appear to be a darker color than the rest of the creature’s body. As with the previous image, we cannot tell what color the creature’s skin is due to the camera.

The creature is incredibly tall compared to the first one, appearing about as large in the image as the previous giant despite being farther away. The height of this beast is comparable to that of the infamous Breaking News, another humanoid titan.

Behavior

Very little is known about this creature’s behavior, but we can assume that it behaves similarly to the other titan photographed in the previous image. Given their similarities, it is likely that this creature is also a member of the aforementioned Giants, which would thereby imply that he behaves in one of the three behavior classes of The Giants.

This Giant in particular would likely behave either destructively or observational, given that it also does not posses any means of directly ascending people, nor does it have the height. While the destructive capabilities of this creature is definitely apparent, it is also possible that this monster falls into the third category of Giants behavior given that Trevor says that it “Might be good! We don’t know!” This statement raises ambiguity about the behavior of this creature, as well as the other Giants, as they have been known to cause bad things to happen.

Another interpretation of this statement could suggest that the presence of this creature is a good thing because it may imply that the humans will be ascended to salvation by presence of the Giants, if not this one in particular. It could also be Trevor simply making a joke.

Abilities

Like the previous creature, the large size of this titan would allow it to easily decimate cityscapes and forests alike. Since it has a very human-like body structure, it has the ability to be very flexible and maneuverable, possibly being able to run or even crawl very quickly compared to other Giants.

The creature’s root-head may be quite flexible and able to be extended to indefinite lengths, being able to be used for grabbing prey. It could also be horns of some sort, which would be used to ram and demolish structures or possibly other Giants if a conflict arises.

Once again, the creature’s proclivity to appear in forests and being caught by wildfire cameras makes it possible that the creature may be able to start fires by some unknown means.

Wildfire Giant 3 - The Meatball

Appearance

The Meatball depicts a large, round mass of flesh that seems to be drooping down like a sack of some sorts. The main portion of the creature (which will be referred to as its “head”) appears to be able to expand and contract, which can change the overall shape of the organ. This is also where its main features are found.

The skin covering the creature appears to be extremely wrinkly and fleshy, with many visibly thick veins and strange lumps bulging from within. It has a pale brown color and gets darker and redder near the mouth, which could be due to blood.

Near the bottom of its “head” is a large, gaping mouth surrounded by thin and fleshy lips. The creature’s gums and inside of its mouth has a very dark purple-red color to it. Disturbingly, it appears to have several sets of human-like teeth, with one being seen clearly in the front of the mouth, and another being a little further back inside the mouth. It is unknown if the creature only has these two sets of teeth or if it possesses more further back.

Second Image

A few days after the initial drawing of the creature, Trevor posted another image of what we can only assume is the same being or a related creature. This time, we have a clearer view of it above the forest. It is worth noting that the appearance of the creature in this image also differs from the previous one, though the general composition is still present.

The Meatball in this image appears to be a more dried-out variant of the original creature. It is considerably thinner and small than the previous appearance. Its head is covered with a number of veins and is sagging and decomposing. The mouth is also closed this time, and it is now located at the side of its head rather than at the bottom.

The most interesting part of the second image is that the number of large, root-like veins on which the creature’s head is directly attached to. The veins are spread out upwards, resembling the roots of a plant. The veins hold the head in place, preventing it from falling. They also get thinner and thinner as they go up. It is unknown where or what the veins are attached to, if anything at all.

Behavior

Similarly to Root Head, not much is known about this creature’s behavior, but we can make a few assumptions based on the captions given.

First of all, it appears to be more intelligent and directly nefarious than its fellow Wildfire Giants, as it has been observed to laugh directly at its victims, as well as directly killing smaller groups of people in violent ways, rather than simply causing mass destruction to civilization and passively causing damage, like other Giants.

It is also seems to have previously devoured some people or possibly animals, given the blood surrounding its mouth, however it did not appear to consume the victims mentioned in the reports, meaning that it may have been full at the time, or possibly thought the people were unworthy to ascend. Another possibility is that it is a purely sadistic being who only kill people for fun.

The two Meatballs we see between the two image have drastic visual differences, with the second one being much more veiny and dried out. It is a possibility that these are two separate creatures of similar species, hence their different hunting tactics. It is also just as possible that it is the same creature undergoing metamorphosis over a period of time. This would explain how it would have acquired additional abilities in the second image.

Abilities

The Meatball possess many abilities, including levitation allowing for quick transport. It can also bite larger targets to cause severe damage along with leaving a large amount of saliva, which can potentially drown or slow down creatures. If the target is small enough, or in a large group, it can descend and devour crowds before ascending into the clouds. It is unknown if it is capable of sending people to salvation, as it appears to be a Destruction Giant rather than a Collection Giant.

It also has disorienting laughter that resembles more of a repeated shriek that can cause temporary deafness, disorientation and can potentially rattle organs. As previously mentioned, it may be able metamorphose to gain new abilities, and increased movement speeds. These abilities combined make a very powerful giant that can cause even greater damage when combined with the pyrokinetic abilities of it's fellow wildfire giants.

Wildfire Giant 4 - The Darkness

Appearance

The Darkness depicts three titanic humanoid entities far off in the distance, and appear to be moving quickly towards a small town. As is the case with this group of creatures, they have been caught on tape by a wildfire camera.

The creatures themselves appear to be human-shaped figures with broad bodies and enlarged heads. These heads are not connected to the body via necks, in fact, they lack any sort of necks at all, similarly to the Hexapod Giant. Their arms are also rather long, with some signs of musculature near the shoulders. Interestingly enough, these creatures appear to lack any hands or legs. In place of a lower half, their torsos are connected to a large tube-like appendage which get thinner and thinner until the base. The appendages are also rather flexible and can swerve and bend around akin to a snake or worm. It is unknown if their base is affixed to a single point in the ground or not.

Another thing to note about these Giants is that their entire bodies are completely pitch-black with absolutely no signs of light reflecting off them, even from the sun, a detail which gave them their name. The way their bodies appear to be unnaturally fading and spreading gives them the appearance of a formation of some kind of gas or mist. The way their arms and lower appendages get smaller, wavier and touch the ground with no visible hands or feet also give them the appearance of a tornado.

Behavior

Out of all the Wildfire Giants, these creatures have the least amount of information and apparent clues as to how exactly they behave, however we can make a few assumptions based one the behaviors of other Giants.

It is very likely that The Darkness is a group of Destruction Giants, given their theme of darkness as opposed to the heavenly nature of the Collection Giants. The way they are positioned and appear to be quickly crawling towards the camera, and therefore the town gives us an impression that they are rather aggressive and persistent compared to other Giants.

The fact that there are multiple near-identical Giants in the image may also imply that the creatures can reproduce asexually and create duplicates of themselves. Their dark tornado-like appearance could be a representation of the sinfulness of the people they most likely come after, or the large amount of dark and obscuring smoke that results from a wildfire.

They could also be another type of Elemental Giant, having control over gas or wind. Overall, these Wildfire Giants appear to be more hostile than even the Meatball.

Abilities

Besides their enormous size, these Giants may have the ability to control weather judging by their appearance and theme of darkness. Their dark, colossal appearance and mist-like properties could be enough to block out the sun when nearby, surround the edges of the town and disorienting their victims.Unlike the first two Giants, these ones might have control over winds instead of fire, given their aforementioned appearance and properties.

The fact that they appear to be more focused on the town and using their properties to their advantage could suggest signs of intelligence. Their overall composition and flexibility, combined with the way the move will also help them move much faster than the other Giants, proving them to be a very big threat.

Wildfire Giant 5 - Signal Bug

Appearance

The Signal Bug is the second tallest of all the Wildfire Giants, being about twice as tall as The Darkness. In the image, it appears to be looming over a small human settlement within a forest.

The creature itself appears as an abnormally large insect-like humanoid, with numerous bony and grey appendages which protrude from its torso. Similarly to The Darkness, it is a tripodal creature that walks on two arms and a single appendage on its lower half. This appendage could also be a tail, possibly leading to a long stinger.

The general upper body plan of the creature is very similar to that of a butterfly, with a number of bony ribs resembling wings spread out in a root-like pattern and eventually cover a large area where wings would normally be, very much similar to The Angel. The torso is also skeletal in texture and appearance, and is also segmented like a butterfly or moth’s abdomen.

This creature presumably has no eyes, skin, nose or other sensory organs whatsoever. It is likely merely an exoskeleton used for protection against danger, like most arthropods, with the vulnerable squishy organs hidden on the inside. This creature's exoskeleton would also likely be very thin and in order to allow for a creature of its magnitude it to fly using its wings, although it may also have physics-defying properties to it like other Giants.

Behavior

This Wildfire Giant has several tactics of destruction to complete it's goals. Speaking of which, the creature’s angelic appearance may also suggest that this is a Collection Giant rather than a Destruction Giant like its peers, it would also have the means to do so, unlike the others.

This is further solidified by the fact that the creature’s body appears to be rather delicate and thin to cause much destruction, unlike the other Wildfire Giants, which are visibly much more muscular and physically built for attacking. It is possible that it uses its many appendages to not only fly, but to also grab dozens of people at a time in order to ascend them. It is not too much of a stretch to also assume that it has some capabilities to kill unworthy people by itself.

Abilities

This creature is a massive creature, letting it cover huge swathes of land in seconds. It's travel is expedited even further by it's ability of flight, and it is resistant to most weaponry except extremely heavy artillery or nuclear weapons due to its tough exoskeleton.

Its mere presence is also able to corrupt digital interfaces, radio signals, and other electronic devices to prevent it and its peers from being documented well or to prevent people from communicating with each other for help, rendering them even more feeble to succumb to the path chosen by the Giants.

Finally, as previously mentioned, it may also have some sort of ability to completely defy gravity like other Giants, as it should not be able to fly due to its ineffective “wings” and the sheer size of the creature would be very difficult to move. In fact, it might not even be able to walk at all, as it balances all its weight onto three extremely thin and long appendages which would not hold its weight.
