The female equivalent to the Ogre
is just as large, strong, and ugly, but is usually depicted as more intelligent than her male counterpart. The Ogress is well versed in curses and magic and is not as easily fooled as her male companions are. While the males enjoy using fear and brute strength to achieve their goals, the females prefer to use trickery. One famous example is the fabulous candy house of Hansel and Gretel
, used to lure innocent victims to her instead of kidnapping them while they sleep.
