A benevolent Giant of Cornwall in England. He was of great proportions but was very fond of children and would usually play games with them. One day due to his simple-mindedness he threw boulders instead of soft balls to the children. One of them crushed a small boy to death. He felt so guilty that he died of grief. A rocking stone remains in Penznace which marks the place of his death.
