Ogres are large, bestial humanoids, known for their voracious appetites and thieving ways. They are rarely very intelligent, but they possess a feral cunning which makes them quite dangerous. They often lord it over smaller humanoids, or find themselves in the employ of races such as Orcs or hobgoblins as shock troops, or serving Giants as smaller servants.
Despite a very common misconception, ogres are not related to Giants, being much more closely related to Orcs, only much larger. They are so closely related that rare instances of ogre-orc cross-breeding are not unknown, resulting in the creatures called Orogs.
