Lesser cyclopes are monstrous brutes that enjoy eating human brains. They are easily tricked, but they fight fiercely and to the death.

Rock Throwing (Ex): Adult cyclopes are accomplished rock throwers and receive a +1 racial bonus on attack rolls when throwing rocks. A lesser cyclops can hurl rocks weighing 40 to 50 pounds each (Small objects) with a range increment of 140 feet and a maximum range of five range increments.

Rock Catching (Ex): A cyclops can catch Small, Medium-size, or Large rocks (or projectiles of similar shape). Once per round, a cyclops that would normally be hit by a rock can make a Reflex save to catch it. The DC is 15 for a Small rock, 20 for a Medium-size one, and 25 for a Large one. (If the projectile has a magical bonus on attacks, the DC increases by that amount.) The giant must be ready for and aware of the attack.
