The orcs are Homo Elvii of the Goblinoid family, and generally, they are described by Elven accounts as bruttish, aggresive and repulsive. Is fair to point out, orc accounts often say such things of elves as well.
Like the rest of the Goblinoids, the orcs doesn't have maná.
Origins: Proto-Orcs, Orcs and Modern Orcs. Edit
The Orcs evolved and diverged from other Homo Elvii in Zarhuy, after the Orcs clade split from the goblinoid lineage of the Homo Elvii. The first records of Orcs date to archeological remains in Forhel from between the 5.000 to 4.000 b.a.H.
However it must be noted that while the emergence of orcs can be found in southern Zarhuy, there are discussions when there is the distintion made between the goblinoid proto-orc -the lineages of large goblins and ogres that will come to form the orcs- and orcs.
The orcs, as a distinctive goblinoid group proceeded to colonize all the continents and larger islands, arriving at Aels and Hieyoks around the 2.000 b.a.H, Ushaenor by the 400-600 a.a.H and Zean at the 800 a.a.H.
Coming to be largelly under demonic influence during the Dark Age of Demons, demons will develope from the original orcish races several new breeds of orcs, mixing and breeding them with other races.
From the mix of orcs with other peoples of Aiers will originate the modern orcs of post-cataclysm Aiers.
Orcs of ZarhuyEdit
Orcs of AelsEdit
The orcs arrived to Aels from Hieyoks, settling in this continent the Green Orc of Kaiehm and Polforia and the red Brûmer Orc. Later, settled as in the southern shores, the brown Vanolosé Orc and a tribe of Antorian Orc, the Schlobohmi Orc.
The demons of the Demonic Dark Legion as well will breed new orc races, such as the grey Ozcura Orc, and the black Kokto Orc. These last ones, due the wars of Tok-Thoria, will settle for some decades -and even centuries- in the shores of the sea of Tok and Caritz.
Orcs of HieyoksEdit
In the continent of Hieyoks exist two races of orcs: the smaller Servants of the Giants, the Hieyoksmainer Orc and the High Galaw High Orc , but there would be settlements along the shore line of Vanolosé Orc.
