Giant Grafts

There are numerous species of giants, and they can be found living in their own communities or among other creatures in places that can accommodate their size.

Slag Giant

Source Starfinder #17: Solar Strike pg. 59

Sun Giant

Abilities: Solar Aura (Su): All light within 60 feet of a sun giant is bright light and can’t be reduced by magical darkness. At CR 9+, sighted creatures within the aura become dazzled. At CR 15+, once per round as part of any other action, the giant can target one sighted creature within the aura to be permanently blinded (Fortitude negates).

Sun Dart (Ex): As a swift action, a sun giant can empower the next piece of physical ammunition they fire from a ranged weapon (such as an arrow, dart, or round) with solar energy. If this attack hits, the giant deals an additional amount of fire damage equal to their CR and the target is off-target until the end of the sun giant’s next turn.
