Ogres are well known in mythology and folklore around the world, and although the word is derived from the ancient Etruscan god Orcus, the beast itself is derived from a man-eating creature. Many of us know ogres through Shrek, but he is not a typical ogre. These creatures are huge and hairy and have voracious appetites. They are always portrayed as stupid or cruel, but maybe you can look past that.
