An ettin, also known as a belugig or belung, is among the largest of nickers, looking like enormous deformed men and reaching heights of up to 50 feet. They are strong, but not hard to hurt or kill despite their size and easy to outwit as they are not very bright. When in a rage however, ettins are capable of great destruction, especially in gangs, and can also cooperate with other monsters. This can become a problem for teratologists, but alone they are easier to destroy. They frequently raid the countryside for food in the winter months. Umbergogs are similar to ettins but but have large heads of animals on humanoid bodies.
