Ogres are a race of sentient creatures inhabiting Heimr. They are considered evil by most of Asgard, but they're not inherently so. What they lack in intelligence, they make up with strength, toughness and endurance; they are the shock troops of Utgard. The Ogre language is a simple, guttural language; only a few phrases are known to outsiders and (almost) all of them are related to war and fighting.

Appearance

28413256198_5fd707f961_o.jpg Ogres are large, bulky humanoids quite similar in appearance to normal humans. They tend to be very muscular, even female Ogres, much more muscular and taller compared to humans. Other distinguishing features when compared to humans are: lots of hair all over their body, one or more horns protruding from their head and large fangs in their mouths. Although nearly all of the Ogres have at least one of these features, it's not common to see an Ogre with all three. Most Ogres feature a combination of two of these features.

Biology

Ogres are more resistant to disease and infection and their wounds heal faster when compared to the other races. They also tend to shrug of wounds that might fell other races.

Ogres will grow for the better part of their life. Becoming ever larger as they grow older. On average a human size Ogre would be around 20. But their height varies greatly.

Diet

The diet of an ogre varies greatly, as they are able to eat just about anything that comes in range of their mouth. This includes raw meat, cabbage, a glass of ale after it has been emptied, and with some frequency sand, pebbles and smaller rocks. This last one is used by ogres to improve digestion.
