Ogres are large lowborn giantkin.

Appearance

Ogres look like large, muscular humanoids with large heads. Kutha had beady dark eyes and a large looming jaw of broken teeth protruding from underneath.[11] Bouldergut had yellowed teeth and greasy gray hair that fell in her face.[12][13]

Society

Ogres are neither clever nor charismatic, relying on brute force and numbers to overcome their prey. They tend to group with other lowborn giantkin (hill giants and cyclopes), and their settlements are often ruled by the cyclopes, though they may be taken over by oni or trolls who can whip them into armies of evil.[14] On occasion, an ogre will crossbreed with a humanoid such as an orc; one such half-ogre was encountered as part of a mostly orcish raiding party in the Vesper Timberland.[15]

However, a growing number of ogres have found a new home and purpose under the Kryn Dynasty.[16] Ogres also work for marginal groups elsewhere in Wildemount.[17]

In the Mornset Countryside of Tal'Dorei, the free cities have alliances with lowborn giantkin to protect them against the Iron Authority.[18]

Half-ogres

Half-ogres are the result of the union between an ogre and a representative of another humanoid race (e.g human, hobgoblin, bugbear, or orc). However, human mothers rarely survive the birth of a half-ogre offspring.[4]

The half-ogre offspring of an ogre and an orc is called an ogrillon.[4]

Known ogres

History

Vox Machina encountered two ogres in the mines of Kraghammer: one was forced to run closer to the surface; into the Greyspine Quarry, escaping K'Varn's abominations.[27] Another ogre pulled down a cart contaning a black pudding in the tunnels between Emberhold and Yug'Voril.[28]

Later, on their way to complete a contract for Slayer's Take, Percy, Lyra, Grog, Scanlan, Vex, and Zahra Hydris were ambushed in the Vesper Timberland by a group of orcs supported by one ogrillon and a worg.[29]
