Origins

The Orc is one of a race of creatures whose existence is first detailed in English literary fiction. Specifically, the most famous and popular portrayal of Orcs is featured in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.

Prior to the publication of this 1954 novel, "Orc" was merely a name for a breed of sea monster with a relation to the Killer Whale (Orca) species.

Some believe that Orcs may have been purposely created by some long forgotten race. They, themselves, state that Orcs have always roved the world, in their warring tribes.

Appearance

Orcs have skin that trends toward shades of green or gray, though occasionally brown or pitch-black skin tones do occur. They have strong bodies, athletic and fit. Body types for Orcs include some thinner physiques, but overwhelmingly, they trend toward muscular, husky or heavyset frames.
