The Stone Family is one of three ancient clans, along with the Clay Family and Dust Family, who descend from champions of The Matron of Ravens. The Stone Family was tasked to create and protect the Menagerie.
Unlike the Clays, who are all Firbolgs, and the dwarven Dusts, the Stones seem to include all races, perhaps indicating that it is a family by adoption rather than birth.
Gaima Stone is partner to Darrah, and the head of the Guardian of the Shrine. She is a massive middle aged goliath half-giant with hair completely shorn, and beautiful tattoos of curling vines that come up from underneath the neck and wrap around and frame the eyes and go up on top and spiral to the back of the head. She has heavy fur around her collar, a sleeveless vest that drags to the ground, thick bracers, and a staff.
The descendants of these heroes protect and care for their sacred locations to this day, occasionally making pilgrimages to the other families when the need is dire. All three families assist the families of those who have died with funeral rites, each burying the bodies in their own way.
The Stone family's ritual for the final disposition of the dead includes a series of rites spoken over the body, which is prepared with salts and minerals that begin the process of decomposition. A sign or vision from The Changebringer or The Wildmother indicates to which beasts the body should be given, and the animals then consume it, eventually returning it to the earth.

- Fjord was given the last name of "Stone" in the orphanage where he was raised. He viewed it as a reminder that he was thrown away, like a valueless stone, and rejects the name, not using it.
