Strong as well as violent, the Orcs are Native to the temperate plains south of the Great Malian Desert. They gather in tribes led by the strongest Orc, who proves his superiority by beating every other male into submission. For thousands of years, they warred with the Elves, occasionally going onto offensives into the Nameless Forest. However, that changed when the Illumians came. By now, the Illumians have conquered and enslaved the Orc race entirely, and use them to help fight against the Elves. There are many Orcs who have escaped the Illumians’ control, however, they remain unloved creatures, not welcome anywhere, and most turn to crime or violence.
