That would make sense. Though Bakker said that the sranc, when standing at least, are around 5 feet tall. That isnt that much shorter, though they do spend most of their time running on all fours. I imagine the nonmen at close to 7 feet.

That sounds about right, though I imagined the Sranc to be shorter than that.

The Sranc are clearly the shortest of Eärwa's bipedal species, with humans being middle-height, and Nonmen being the tallest. And, of course, the Inchoroi are taller than all of these.

Right. I totally forgot the Bashrag, as usual. They don't have very memorable parts in the story, so I rarely remember them. Yeah, I'd guess they are around Inchoroi height, but much broader (triple skeletons fused together, and all that).

(I left out the dragons from the list, for obvious reasons.)

No idea how tall the Inchoroi may be, but I imagine the bashrag like the standard barbarian race height. So in Earwa more like the size of the Nonmen, a head or so taller than men. Having extra skeletons doesn't make you taller.

In The False Sun, Aurang is described as "no more than half again as tall as a man". So 8-9 feet, probably.

In TWLW, they're described as "towering over the Sranc", to the point that they can be spotted among the Horde from a significant distance away.

yeah but if the horde is all bent over, making them only a couple feet tall, even a 6 foot man would stick out pretty well, especially if he was several times the girth of the sranc. It really wouldn't take much to stand out. The eyes are drawn to anything different to begin with.


Think of a big white fat guy standing in a horde of small brown furry monkeys.
Now invert it. A big fat 7foot tall gorrilla standing in a horde of 15 year old hairless boys, sitting on their heels and playing in the grass.

Shouldn't be hard to pick out.

Interesting question. I think I actually have a pretty clear idea of their relative heights, using myself and Kellhus as a reference point.

-Kellhus 6'6"
-Cnaiur 6'4"
-Achamian 5'7"
-Cunuroi as a race, their average height 6'
-Inchoroi as a race, their average height 8'+
-The Sranc 4'8"
-Conphas 5'10"
-Proyas 5'11"
-Yalgrota 7'10"
-Esmenet 5'3"
-Serwe 5'5"

You have to remember that most caste-menials would be under 5'6" due to their diets.

Looks like we were all overestimating the height of the Nonmen by quite a margin. I didn't personally subscribe to the idea of them being 7-8' tall, but it feels a bit wierd that they should be, on average, shorter than I am.

Heh. I always imagined Esmenet as being taller than Serwe, too. I realise that, logically, a Norsirai concubine is likely to be taller than a Ketyai caste-menial, but Serwe's (for want of a better term) girlishness and Esmenet's (likewise) world-weariness always made Esme 'feel' taller to me.

Dunno if this has been posted before, but someone drew this and I found it at the PON wiki (which I discovered today):

So what was the Dunyain diet like, if Kellhus is that tall?  Acorns and a caste menial starch-centric diet ain't going to cut it.

or did the dunyain feast upon themselves?  Remember Kellhus, on his way to starvation, encountered numerous game and never really considered hunting it.  Nor did he consider fishing, seemingly.
