Races of Krynn
The Ogres are the race
that were created by Takhisis. Originally they were very beautiful, intelligent
and powerful. One thing that Ogres lacked is compassion.
In the beginning
of Age of Dreams, one Ogre, Igraine, learned compassion from their human slaves.
The other Ogres didn't like this, and they called Igraine as an insane heretic
and ordered his death. Igraine fled and he and his follower became Irdas. The
rest of the Ogres became ugly and cruel, they lost their glory after a huge
humans rebellion. On an island between Ansalon and The Dragon Isles the Irda
hid. Some would occasionally sojourn across Krynn but for the most part they
lived quietly out of the way. The Irdas became a solitary race, even to the
point of becoming isolationalist amongst their own kind.
Many years did
pass as The Irdas watched the world. They were left alone until the Knights of
Takhisis discovered their Island. The Irdas knew that their solitude was at an
end, and thus did they use the magical power of an artifact they had captured to
keep it from the people of the world who were endangered by it: The Graygem of
Gargath. Cracking open the Gem to use its magic to save the Irda, they released
a malevolent being, Chaos. He destroyed entirely the Isle of the Irda. No known
surviving Irda are known, but it was common for them to leave the isle for a
time so perhaps not all were killed.
