Ogres are large in stature, their fearsome appearance at odds with their usually gentle demeanor. They often have shaggy coarse hair and large horns with tusk like teeth, although there is a large degree of variation in the species (as seems to be the case with most of the races inhabiting the Labyrinth).
Ogres were generally a very peaceful people, living lonely lives in the desolate places of the world. Unfortunately they bore some of the worst treatment from the humans. The solitary and non-aggressive Ogres were hunted mercilessly by bands of eager knights. Never a numerous people to begin with the Ogres were nearly wiped out by a wave of human "chivalry".
Ogres have become very rare in the Great Maze, their dwindling numbers further reduced by the Maze War, The few remaining Ogres have a new and powerful ally in the Labyrinth however- the Labyrinth itself. The magic which pervades the whole realm has seeped directly into the brick and rock of the Maze.
The rocks remember.
A bond of kinship has formed between the stone foundations of the Great Maze and those who laid them. It is said that the stones can whisper to the Ogres, and that if an Ogre is in peril the stones will come tumbling and rolling to their aid.
