Missing Giants: Verbeeg

For the Missing Giants series, following the conversion to D&D 5e of the Voadkyn, a.k.a. Wood Giant., now it's the turn of the Verbeeg.

Human Behemoths. They're from 8 to 10 feet tall and weigh between 300 and 400 pounds. Some have minor deformities, such as club foot, uneven eyes, hair lips, etc. In all other respects they appear human, including skin, hair, and eye color.

Mutual Beneficial Relationship. Verbeeg inhabit areas infested with hill giants and ogres and have relationship with them and often they divide the same lairs. The Verbeeg provide intelligence and direction that hill giants and ogres lack, while they provide instead protection by their greater fighting prowess.

Flesh Lovers. Verbeeg eat almost anything, but they love flesh of all sorts, expecially of sentient creatures.

Selfish and Practical. Verbeeg are smart enough to let others soften up the enemy first. Since they're commonly found with hill giants and ogres, in the first few rounds of combat they drive their less intelligent companions into the battle. This is accompanied by many curses, oaths, and highly descriptive accounts of the giants' and ogres' parentage.
