Missing Giants: Wood Giant (Voadkyn)

There you can find a conversion to D&D 5e of the Voadkyn, a.k.a. Wood Giant.

Thin and Light. Voadkyns are smaller than other giants. They're 9 feet tall and weigh around 700 pounds and they have the physical proportions of humans.

Wood Elves Bonds. Voadkyns inhabit the same forests as wood elves. They have no lairs, choosing to live under the stars or with the wood elves for a while. The strong bond between wood elves and wood giants goes back further than either race can remember. This may account for Voadkyns' fey ancestry.

Solitary lives. Wood giants don't mix with other intelligent creatures but elves.
Humans who have had contact with Voadkyns describe them as friendly enough, but flightly and frivolous, never in great hurry to do anything other than eat and drink large amounts of wine. They don't fight unless forced to defend themselves or their allies.

Treasure Lovers. Voadkyns are fond of finely cut gems and magical items. Sometimes they join an adventurers' party in disguise, just to steal gems, jewels or magical treasure.
