Ogres are feared due to their sheer power, cruelty and devotion to the dark arts. Ogres prey on humans, sometimes offering a pact in exchange for power, that always results in the corruption of the human and their original wish.
Ages ago, they attempted to conquer the realm of humans in what came to be known as the Ogre Battle, led by the dark god Diablo and his many generals. Thanks to the forces of Heaven and the Three Knights the ogres were repelled and banished to the netherworld, along with the humans who allied with them.
Despite being imprisoned, they are still able to break free should someone summon them or form a pact under the right circumstances.
Some known ogres are Diablo, also known as the God of Destruction, Ashmedai, the elemental god of darkness, and Danika, the corrupted daughter of the godess Berthe. Humans corrupted by ogres range from members of royalty such as Empress Endora, Prince Gares, King Dorgalua and Prince Yumil, legendary sages such as Rashidi, to lesser known blood such as Godeslas Branic.
Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber is the first game in which multiple generic ogres appear in the class, "Ogre." They appear as the most powerful non unique demon class within the game.
Ogres can only be rarely found in the wild and recruited, or made to join the player with the Love and Peace item, later in the game.
Ogres are a powerful frontline unit and it is recommended that the player grab some to give their two handed Axes to, as only Ogres and the rare Black Knights can use them.
Ogres in the wild have a rare chance to drop the Ogre Blade.
