These were huge beings that had the body of a human but had serpent arms and legs and snakes heads instead of feet. The Gigantes were born fully clad with armour and weapons and on creation they immediately attacked the Olympian Gods. Their leader was Alcyoneus who had the unique ability of immortality as long as his feet touched the ground. The Gigantes fought the Olympian gods frequently but were eventually defeated in an epic battle.
