The Empire of Light
Whether owned and bred as gladiators for the arena, or born in freedom, Half-orcs are a race with no true homeland. Created by Chymeric Mages through the techniques of Chymeric Magic centuries ago as slave-soldiers, the Half-Orcs have a reputation throughout Veneris as short-tempered, aggressive brutes. This reputation stems, in large part from their fierce appearance which other races tend to find unnerving. Unlike Half-Elves, Half-Orcs are are true, if magically created race, and are able to breed with each other, though not with either Humans or Orcs.
Favoured Regions: Anerin, Eimaris, Eldras, Eidras, Paerin, Kalaris, Veilnaris, Olentis
Large and well-built, Half-orcs are tall, have skin ranging in colour from a dark green to almost black. Their well-muscled bodies are generally hairless and both sexes are often completely bald. Half-orcs rarely wear much in the way of decorative jewellery, preferring simple but hard wearing clothes befitting their common positions as gladiators, manual labourers or guards. Other races consider Half-orcs to appear somewhat bestial in appearance, and individuals, especially those bred for the arena often have oversized teeth resembling tusks.
