A nonhuman race, characterized by great height (ten feet is the average for adult males), broad, almost snoutlike noses and long, tufted ears. They live in areas called stedding
, which they rarely leave, and they typically have little contact with humankind. Knowledge of them among humans is spares, and many believe Ogier to be only legends, though they are wondrous stonemasons and built most of the great cities constructed after the Breaking. Although they are thought to be a pacific people and extrememly slow to anger, some old stories say they fought alonside humans in the Trolloc
Wars, and call them inplacable enemies. By and large, they are extremely fond of knowlege, and their books and stories often contain information lost to humans. A typical Ogier life span is at least three to four times that of a human.
