"The eldest of ogres (of which there are but few) were able to survive the Great King's royal hunts due not to their strength, but their penchant for sleeping for dozens of years. But now that monsters are rightful citizens in Ardania, the ogres want to be welcomed into society as well, and the elder ogres have awakened, they want to become the rightful... No, better this way.. The elder ogres, that rule over all the ogres, have now awoken to make ogres rightful monsters in the... society of monsters."
(From "Unfinished works and letters" by Master Alfus Bumblegate, v.33)

One of the best early Lords.  His resistances aren't quite as nice as the Chosen Warrior or Grand Stubborn Master, but they're still decent to start with and he comes with 5 more HP anyways.  More importantly, innate Cleave is fantastic and can often let you dodge a counterattack by aiming for a weakened enemy instead of a full-health one, and Demolisher is wonderful for taking down cities; once equipped and buffed up an Elder Ogre can one-shot low and even mid level castles.

Since both Ragged Ball and Ogre Sleepiness reject Meleeicon damage bonuses, they are added to the regular attack of the unit trice. Add Meleeicon damage bonuses to this unit to strengthen its regular attack a lot. See Damage Calculation Guide for details.
