The ogre mage[1] is the most common sort of oni—a fiendish spirit cloaked in living flesh, manifested in the form of an ogre. Ogre mages are often found as leaders of ogre tribes, while others become lone marauders who hold whole villages as hostages, demanding regular tributes in the form of gold, food, or maidens.[2]


Ninjas accompany an ogre mage.

Ogre mages, as the name implies, closely resemble ogres, but of a more noble and intelligent mien. They possess jagged tusks and gleaming eyes. An ogre mage typically wears beautiful, ornate armor.[2]


Like all oni, ogre mages have the powers of regeneration and shapeshifting. As befits their name, they also have a suite of magical abilities. Despite their lack of wings, ogre mages can fly unaided.[2]


Ogre mages originated in Tian Xia, but have also become common in the Inner Sea region, where they are the best-known race of oni.[3]
