Half-Orc
rating: 0+x

While the days of constant orcish raids are long gone in civilized regions, their legacy remains. Orcish blood is far more common among humans than most people want to realize - especially in the northern climates, where orcs were the most numerous - and frequently the strange rules of heredity produce individuals that fully qualify as half-orcs. These unfortunates are seen as a unpleasant remainder of a barbaric past, and are kept at the bottom of the social pyramid. Indeed, members of the high society frequently believe that most or all people from the lower classes have some orcish blood in them, and caricatures of the poor, criminals, and the violently insane often depict them with distinctly orcish appearances.
