Ogres are a species of giant-kin commonly mistaken for oni. Ogres are giant brutish humanoids that delight in brutality, rape, savagery, and torture. They revel in inflicting misery on others. They are considered bastards by the other giant races except for trolls. They stand between 9 and 10-feet tall and can weigh up to 650 lbs. They tend to be lazy and brutish, preferring to rely on ambush and overwhelming numbers in battle. Ogres often work as mercenaries, hoping for easy plunder.[2]

AppearanceEdit

Ogres appear as giant humanoids with very muscular bodies, large heads, and a voracious appetite. They love to feed on humans; especially young children. This savage nature often leads ogres to become the minions of evil beings, such as hags.

LanguageEdit

Ogres speak Jogishk, a patois of the Jotun tongue.[3]

HistoryEdit

According to legend, the ogre race was formed when Othea, wife of the titan, Annam All-Father, had an affair with Vaprak.[4]
