When does this take place in the timeline? Ancient history? Before the Collapse? During the Collapse? After reconstruction? Long after?

Either the Metahuman is a giant, or the Birrin are really tiny.

If it is the former, there would be some complications that would arise for the Metahuman due to Galileo's Square Cube Law. As an object grows in size, its volume and mass grows proportionally faster than its surface area. At 2 times that size, an object would be about 8 times the weight; at 3 times the size, 27 times the weight; at 4 times the size, 64 times the weight; and so on. There would be a point where the object would collapse under its own weight. The Metahuman's circulatory system would have a ridiculously high blood pressure, and his/her neurological activity would be extremely slow and delayed due to vast distances between the neurons and the brain.

If it is the latter, then the Birrin would be like insects. The electrostatic force would begin to rival the force of gravity for them, which means they can potentially cling onto walls and ceilings quite easily. Assuming a surface gravity of about 1g on their planet, they would be capable of surviving falls at pretty much any height, even at terminal velocity. Strong winds would pose a major threat to the species, as even the slightest gust could send them flying through the air. They would have extremely fast reflexes, but very limited potential for a sophisticated intelligence, due to their small brain capacity, though this could be resolved if the brain in question is very dense.

This scene kind of reminds me of a quote from the Roadside Picnic... "Picture a forest, a country road, a meadow. Cars drive off the country road into the meadow, a group of young people get out carrying bottles, baskets of food, transistor radios, and cameras. They light fires, pitch tents, turn on the music. In the morning they leave. The animals, birds, and insects that watched in horror through the long night creep out from their hiding places. And what do they see? Old spark plugs and old filters strewn around... Rags, burnt-out bulbs, and a monkey wrench left behind." In comparison, the Birrin are probably like the curious frightened animals watching the picnic, and the Metahumans are like the humans at the said picnic.

The metahuman is indeed huge, but its size means it does not behave like a traditional organism: if the constantly active fields that hold it together fail, it simply falls apart under its own mass.

So it is an artificially constructed host body. If they were made out of say, carbon nanotubes, they would certainly have a very high strength to weight ratio, but I do wonder what is the major advantage of being so huge. Do they do this to present themselves as more godlike to the primitive species they encounter? Can they switch out bodies if need be?

I love the way how, even despite being colossal, alien and inhuman, the metahuman still keeps that base human-ness in the posture and other small details.

I wonder if they are looking down upon this planets life forms with impassioned indifference or with genuine fascination. Ive always liked towering godlike figures in artwork they give you a feeling of insignificance and awe at the same time. Great work on this you truly capture what its like to be on another world.

Singing a rider's song
One of us will be forgotten
