Jotun were the descendants of the Frost Giants in the north of the continent Khloref. They were rarely seen in Tamriel or Rieltam. Although popular culture had labeled them as clumsy, slow, and not too bright, Jotun were renowned for their strength, stamina, and general disregard for the cold.
The Jotun had Frost Atronach familiars, who they can summon at will. The Atronachs are as wolves are to Vampires, friends, companions, and pets. When a Jotun fought, she or he may go into Giant's Rage, which made her or him stronger, and even weapons cannot stop one unless she or he is stabbed, hacked, and slashed many times. They lived in the area known as Frostvaliant.
