Cyclopses are a race of one eyed giants whose once mighty empire has fallen to obscurity. They now are limited in number and dwell in the Five Finger Mountains.

Cyclopes were one of the smallest types of giants, standing only 12 feet (3.7 meters) and weighing 1,200 pounds (540 kilograms), but they were as strong as the average stone giant. Cyclopes had earthy skin tones that blended with their surroundings. Males and females cyclopes of the Twilithe were bald and had spiked heads instead of hair. Other cyclops had hair and more human-like appearances.

The most peculiar and distinguishing thing about cyclopes was the fact that they only had one large eye in the middle of their foreheads. It tended to be the same as the color of their skin. This eye was rumored to cause fear in any who looked at it. Their single eye gave them poor depth perception, however, and therefore they couldn't use missile weapons very well.

Cyclopes can live for up to 500 years. However, most either starve to death or are killed before dying of old age, except for the prophets that are protected and nurtured by their followers.
