Hettar created the Eldritch giants as a counter to the growing might of arcanists serving the Nawirrûs Covenant. It was a time when the use of Arcane energy was becoming more wide-spread, more potent, and more new spells. Hettar created the Eldritch to be better adapted to learning how to harness and wield this energy.
Traited to feel like they are always behind in some mastery, Eldritch Giants have long sought out what they don't have, employing the normal methods, and if that fails, using cunning or force to get a hold of it. They eventually became equals to the Covenant's Grand Arcanes, catching up mostly by skulduggery, theft and violent raids.
Eventually some "genius" figured out that important areas of arcane study and fabrication needed to be hardened, getting rid of the grandiose halls and corridors, building areas with lower ceiling, forcing the towering eldritch giants to stoop or crawl - this height, like that of the primordials is typically their greatest weakness.
