The ogres lost many of their brethren when their vil- lage was attacked by a masked majin leading an army oF orcs. While seeking their revenge, they attacked Rimuru, believing him to be that masked majin. However, Rimuru was able to clear up the mistake and recruit them to his cause. Soon-aFter, it was revealed that the orcs’ next karget would be the wetlands, home to the lizardmen. While the various monster races worked on plans to deFend against an army of 200,000, a dryad claiming to be the protector of the Forest showed up in Rimuru'’s camp, asking him to vanquish the ore lord.
