"That was kind of your uncle, Muk." Bellalalalalinda recoils at the thought of a leader killing all the women in her tribe -- this Guh was nasty business; like the giants she has learned about. "This Guy sounds like nasty business, Muk. Your mama didn't deserve that."
Was this pity in her voice? Surely not. But she nevertheless continued to talk to the boy, and offer any help she can, remaining unobtrusive.
The boy seems to be quite rotund, but does seem to say he's "hungry all the time." That's probably just normal for a growing hill giant. He'll tell you of escaping his own clan with his mother, even hunkering down in an old castle with some friendly stone, cloud, and fire giants briefly in his travels. They were all apparently on the run from various "Jarls" "Dukes" and "Countesses" that they had differences with.
