Oozes are something of an oddity. Historical records from across Ivoire make no mention of them until only a few decades ago, where they began appearing in great numbers. Although they can be found in nearly all environments, most Oozes tend to gravitate towards villages or other inhabited areas.
Oozes are animated by Arcane energies and are inherently magical in ways most animal species are not. Speculation abounds as to why this may be.
