Ogrillons (pronounced: /ˈgrɪlʌnzo-GRIL-unz[7] or: /ˈɑːgrɪlʌnzAG-ril-unz[7]) were the result of orcs and ogres breeding.


Ogrillons looked very similar to orcs.[4] Roughly 10% of ogrillons inherited the physical attributes of their ogre parentage and were clearly distinguishable from their orcs.[6]


Ogrillons lived in tribes.[3] They often cooperated with orcs and were regularly used by orc groups as extra muscle.[6]

Despite little use for currency, ogrillons often considered gold coins lucky and most ogrillons carried coins with them.[6]

Although most ogrillons pursued barbarian or fighter roles, some chose to become shamans.[8]


Ogrillons thrived in combat and were uncomfortable and restless if not in a battle.[6]


Ogrillons were carnivorous.[3]


As of 1370 DR, ogrillons were one of the many creatures used as slaves in Menzoberranzan.[9] At some point, the second house of Menzoberranzan (House Barrison Del'Armgo) owned roughly 250 slave ogrillons.[10]

Notable ogrillons[]

Ragnor was a fighter and one of the military leaders of Castle Trinity.[11]
Grguch was the leader of the ogrillion tribe known as Clan Karuck.[8]
Hakuun was the shaman of the ogrillon tribe Clan Karuck. Around 1372 DR, Hakuun became the chief advisor to the clan's leader, Grguch.[8]
