Ogres are a fictional sapient species featured in Charle Perrault's Fairy Tales.
Ogres are large humanoid monster with a taste for human flesh, typically that of children. Although larger and beastlier than normal men, they are still civlised (living in castles and wearing elaborate costumes) and can interbreed with humans. The children of an ogre and a human will be slightly smaller-than-average ogre, but, over several generations, ogre blood can be diluted to practically disappear. For instance, Sleeping Beauty's Prince's mother was a quarter-ogress and still quite evil, whereas the Prince himself shows no ogrish traits whatsoever.
