The Orcs

Orcs inhabit nearly all of Allorys. From the standard orcs of Alteria Tarsys and Narbosk, to the brown sand swimming orcs of Hadar or the furry white orcs of the Ulfar lands, they are wisely considered nothing more than bloodthirsty monsters. In Salva’hi, orcs (Las’majoo or “leaf ape” in Salva’hi) are an almost plantlike beast blending in with the foliage, striking when prey leasts expects it. In Hadar, the orcs (Rahmsuma or “sand swimmers” in Hadaran) literally swim through the sand as if it were water. In Karagahl, orcs (Shou Ren or “rock brute” in Karagahl) are hairless stone skinned beasts, while in the Ulfar lands, orcs (Vitdrev or “white beast” in Ulfar) are covered in white fur with oversized claws and tusks. Orcs can breed with Alterians, Salva’hi, Tarsyn, Narboskan, Karagahl, and Ulfar. The union is almost always forced, and the rare offspring allowed to live takes on traits from both parents. In particular, half Ulfar half Vitdrev, known as Haldrev or “half beast” are a terror to behold. The size and strength of both parents, combined with the natural weapons of the orc half and the wolf like traits of the ulfar all work together to make a true predator of the frozen north.
