The history of Tempest Peak Manor should never have been debatable on whether Vexx is shrunken to the size of an ant in a common home, or if the home belongs to a giant creature that abandoned it long ago. This issue is clearly explained in the official manual shipped with the game. It states, in the "Creatures" entry for Rex, that the manor was home to the Storm Giant, who was sucked through a rift into the shadowrealm 700 years prior to the events of the game. This confirms that Vexx is not shrunken down, but simply in a manor made for a giant.
In Tempest Peak Manor, a giant, ugly monstrocity of a pet (Rex) can be found skulking around the floor. Rex is one of the few enemies that can't be killed, so attacking him is pointless. If you fall on the floor, quickly search for either an air vent or a cushion.
