The Giants were the main antagonists of the film and novel, the BFG - their leader, known as Fleshlumpeater, being the most notable member of the band of monsters: who despite being called Giants were in reality extremely large ogres (due to their inhuman features and general monstrous lifestyle).
Living in a dark and forbodding realm known as Giant Land the Giants towered over ordinary humans and often engaged in night-time raids of the human world, stealing men, women and children alike under the cover of night and devouring them: although the BFG was aware of the crimes his fellow Giants committed he was unable to stop their evil ways.
This would change when the BFG befriended a young girl named Sophine and took her to Giant Land, through her, he picked up the courage to finally call on the British Army to deal with the Giants and they managed to capture the beasts as they slept: unfortunately for the Army, Fleshlumpeater was not amongst the sleeping Giants.
After a confrontation with Fleshlumpeater the BFG and the British Army proceeded to recapture the Giants and had them locked away in a large pit where they would be fed nothing but a disgusting plant known as "Snozzcumbers" as punishment for their crimes for the rest of their lives.
