Ogres are creatures that patrol woodlands in search of humans to eat. They are very dangerous and, if sighted, one should flee before it sees its new prey. Ogres sometimes kill for enjoyment. Ogres tend to be stupid, lazy and vain. In some physical descriptions they have horns and fangs.In European mythology, the term Ogre is often interchangeable with Troll and Giant, and this has led to relations between these creatures in popular fantasy and role-playing games.
