ビデオで話している英語内容!hello there my fellow my fellow gions and welcome to another episode from my series on mythical creatures lure the voting round which picked this particular creature was actually a lot closer than I see in most of my polls but ladies and gentlemen the ogre eventually won out not much in prolonging the intro though as I do have a lot of things to tell you anyway I am your host the grim dark narrator and without further ado let us proceed
(01:03)
shall we before knights roamed the wilds of Britain and Scotland and common peasants walked the streets of London a race of loathsome creatures supposedly called these lands their home do girls these ghastly beings were known to terrorize the first human settlers and were known to be specially found of eating children and infants lock your doors and walk the trails of the woods carefully because once an ogre catches a whiff of human flesh its hunger becomes insatiable the word ogre is spelled the same in English as it is in French where it originates at least partially the
(01:44)
word ogre is quite possibly a derivative of the Italian orgo which is a later function of oracle which translates into something like demon this in turn probably derives from the Latin Orcas who was supposedly an ancient Etruscan god of the underworld although it is not certain that Lucas himself is the origin of the creatures his brutish traits and cannibalistic tendencies were apparently enough to make a connection which lasted from the 12th century up until today the first of these connections is believed to have come from a romance verse from the percival leaked onto the growl which
(02:25)
was written by cretin d’etre I’m also sorry if I butchered that the verse reads as follows and it is written that he will come again to all the realms of logrus known as the land of ogres and destroy them with that Lance it has fought that the ogres in this verse are the same ogres that lived in ancient Britain because logrus is fought to be the realm of King Arthur the idea of this type of mythical creature keen popularity with its use by French author Sharper row in the 6096 publication of tales of Mother Goose which later laid foundations of a genre
(03:05)
known as the fairy tale some of the best fairy tales of this era include Puss in Boots the original story not the animated Shrek spin-off and hop oh my thumb both of these feature Agurs and both of them have original french names which i will not read out loud because i will butcher them otherwise when it comes to the ogres everyone tends to agree on at least a couple of key facts first and foremost the ogres are always described as very large they are humanoid in appearance but their size makes it clear that they are not human in nature they
(03:43)
are also very tall which tends to give them association with the Giants and also tend to be very stout their bodies are noted to be very strong and very sturdy it is possible that the many muscles that make up the ogre snatcher are responsible for their stout shape they are almost always described as ugly or brutish some also tend to be quite fat which is a theme associated with their insatiable hunger in addition to their physical build ogres are commonly noted as having a lot of excess hair this only adds to their fearsome appearance and makes them look even more
(04:19)
animalistic the majority of the creatures are also noted to have a skin tone that is not similar to that of a human the most common colors mentioned are green or blue their skin is also said to be rough and they dull earth tone in European legends while in Asia their skin can be vibrantly red or orange but we’re gonna get to the Asian ones in a few minutes they often have a large amount on teeth and are accompanied by a horrific smell last but not least Oh girls are known for their extreme hunger for human flesh
(04:56)
or hunger in general they are gruesome beasts which are feared by everyone but especially mothers of infants and young children an ogre can consume an astounding amount of flesh which is partially why they are known for rampaging through villages and leaving only death and destruction in their wake the origins of the ogre myth can be searched for in many different sources there is an idea that since ogres the trolls and Giants all share quite a few common characteristics it is conceivable that all three creatures have a similar origin some scientists
(05:32)
have suggested that these creatures may have been Neanderthals and extinct species of hominid the Spanish paleoanthropologist Juan Louie our swagger has theorized based on fossil evidence that the Neanderthals and the cro-magnons occupy the same area of Europe at relatively the same time the paleontologist Bjorn Curtin has also entertained the theory fusing knowledge and a bit of imagination to suggest that the trolls and ogres are a distant memory of an encounter with Neanderthals by Homo sapiens ancestors around 40,000 years ago as the new fossil evidence
(06:10)
comes to light in Asia it is also conceivable that Asian believes in ogres could have also contributed to a collectively shared memory of human ancestors another explanation for the ogre myth is that the ogres represented the remains of the forefather cult which was ubiquitous in Scandinavia until the introduction of Christianity in this cult the forefathers were worshipped in sacred groves by altars or by grave mounds they believed that after death a person’s spirit continued to live on or near the family farm this particularly applied to the founding father of the
(06:48)
state over whose body a burial mound or hugger was constructed this revered ancestor spirit remained pair Danks living in his mound a guardian over the property this Guardian was retreated with odd and fearful respect he resented a slightest Liberty that might be taken on or near his resting place the children playing nearby would cause a great ruckus hence the idea that ogres like to eat the children we have the introduction of Christianity however the religious and lead so to demonize the pagan cold and denounced all the worship or respect of
(07:25)
the mound welling spirits as evil still another explanation includes a genetic disorders those looking to science for answers to strange accounts of mythical creatures like the ogres propose that these monsters may have been inspired by people with a genetic disorders at the time it was very unlikely that a genetic abnormality could have been properly diagnosed and the individual suffering from that condition would have likely been seen as inhuman there are even those believing that a story of the ogres may have had a biblical inspiration the Nephilim were a race of
(08:03)
Giants supposedly created by the union of a woman with an angel they were known to be the heroes of their day and were fought to be great warriors some believed that the Giants appearing in the Bible like Goliath also had ties to the Nephilim finally there are also those who believe that the Nephilim may have survived into modern history this in turn would have made it possible for the creatures to have interacted with the early cultures who then recorded them in their fairy tales myths and traditions when trying to better understand what augers are all about it
(08:39)
is also important to know – their connection to children it is known that many legends and fairy tales do have their roots in teaching children to behave thereby extending the number of years that made it from infancy to adulthood because it this way they were taught to stay away from danger the ogres was a supposed population that lived in the forests and towered well above the height of an average man or woman this meant at least from the children perspec that not even a grown man could save them should they encounter the yoga’s
(09:12)
this combined with the knowledge that children word the ogres favorite meal would have been more than enough to keep some children away from wandering off too far one of the most famous literary works involving the yoga’s is the fairy tale Puss in Boots so I think that is worth describing here and yes I do know I’m pronouncing that in a bizarre way so do cut me some slack Puss in Boots is a classic tale which has inspired many works of art and fiction since its release it follows the story of a cat who is the inheritance of a young man who was born in a poor family the cat
(09:50)
helps the boy go from rags to riches by using trickery and manipulation to overcome the obstacles and the ogre standing in the way it also introduces some interesting ideas about ogres and what they were capable of one of the most important aspects of the story line is that the ogre they have to overcome inhabits a castle this shows that these ogres are not just a giant brooding monsters who have made their way through fear and intimidation like other fairytale monsters they were capable of communicating with the humans and other
(10:25)
creatures able to hold positions of power and respect and presumably able to manage other groups in addition to possessing intelligence ogres seem to possess a magical abilities which allow them to shape-shift into any number of creatures in the story Puss in Boots the ogre demonstrates this ability by transforming into a lion and then is tricked into transforming into a mouse once the ogre was transformed into a vulnerable state post devours the mouse this suggests that ogres could disguise themselves as familiar creatures which seemingly mean no harm which supposedly
(11:04)
only added to the threat to the early inhabitants of Britain since I mentioned Asian ogres of it earlier I also wanted to tell you about other kinds of ogre like creatures some of which are so similar that they do probably serve as origins of the myth well Orcas was an ancient Etruscan god who was known for his intense craving of human flesh and his reign over the land of the dead similar to the later gods Hades or Pluto Orcas was depicted as being a large bearded giant with excessive hair which is likely where the connection to the ogres comes from it is
(11:43)
also said that Orcas was in actuality a cyclops which is not surprising since give or take one eye they are very similar creatures though most people agree that Orcas was the inspiration for the name augur there are those that think these mythical monsters could have gotten that name from another source among these alternative sources is a guy known as OGG the last of the Giants the legend of all comes from the Hebrew mythology he said to be the last of the refa him and was known to be a huge being his bed was said to be approximately 13 by 6 feet those who
(12:21)
have studied the legends of OGG believed that he may have been between 9 and 13 feet in height based on clothes left behind in ancient tags but there are dos saying he may have been even bigger while there are no references of OGG feasting on human flesh he was known for being a feared and ruthless ruler and a connection to the cannibalism of humans may have been made from the terrible bloodshed he caused according to the folklore and mythology of the peoples of northern Europe boogers live in the far corners of the forest and the mountains sometimes even in a mythical castle they
(12:58)
are almost always very large and very stupid being easily outwitted by the humans they are not always malicious though while there are stories of ogres that kidnap and eat the children terrorized villages and even guard hordes of treasures or mystical artifacts they are sometimes also considered shy and reclusive oh yah gross also known as Oh a gross was a river guard in Greek mythology and supposedly he and Calliope fathered Orpheus and Linus there are however legends of an area that was near the river he
(13:33)
for us that was named Aoi agrea after him it is therefore feasible to presume that the ogres were named after that area of land and do have a connection to oh yah gross for this reason the oni are yet another breed of monsters which have considerable similarities to the ogres of britain they are known to have oddly colored skin usually red or blue or orange to be very hairy to have large fangs and to hunger for human flesh especially that of infants and children many called the Oni as a Japanese ogres and suggest that their existence along with the existence of the European ones
(14:13)
is proved that ogres were a common creature among many early cultures who have never actually met with each other early on in more recent times however the Oni have lost some of their original wickedness and sometimes take on a more benevolent aspect men in only costumes after Lee the Japanese parades to ward off any bad luck ochre is also appear in tribal cultures pygmy mythology includes the story and I hope I’m not butchering this nigga guna Goomba an ogre who devours children some ogre s monsters are also found in Native American tribal traditions and are usually in the form
(14:54)
of man-eating Giants thus they are also linked to the legends of Bigfoot nowadays at least as far as pop culture is concerned the ogres have never been more popular they are present in a sweep of literature from the fantasy or young adult or genres and you’d be hard-pressed to find a fantasy video game where they are not present in some capacity they are even present in force I might add in the lore of our favorite Warhammer Fantasy universe one of the reasons for this at least in my opinion is that they are some kind of a general use type of creature as opposed to the
(15:33)
Sphinx for example which has a more specialized role the traits of the ogre are much more broad to the point where they are almost interchangeable with the likes of the troll the giant the Cyclops more whether that makes them more or less interesting is a question that you can think about instead and this my friends has been what I wanted to tell you on the mighty ogre its origins and attributes for today to be honest I never expected to make such a lengthy presentation of a creature that to many others is probably a bit generic all of these legends though prove that they are
(16:16)
anything but and arguably closer to the human psyche than many other mythological beasts now is the ogre among your favorite mythical creatures what do you like or dislike most about them do feel free to share your thoughts about them or the topic as a whole in the comments below like I did last time I want to give a special thank you to all those of you who watch this particular series and try to support it actually gives me hope that I can maintain a non 40k series and still have people enjoy it until the next time this is a gdn signing off
