The Main Black Land Orcs’ Character Sheet
Orc Daddies and Bulls
Snortmaidens may rule the roost, but all the minor squabbles and the rest of the general day to day running of an Orc Caravan is left to the Bulls to sort out.
Bull Orcs are marked out for greatness from birth, being bigger, stronger and just a tiny bit more intelligent than the rest of their litter. Having these key advantages, they soon bully their way up through the ranks and are only stopped by another dominant Bull.
Working their way to the top often leads to scraps, which can often result in the death of a young Bull, and it is only the rising stars of the caravans that have enough stamina and cunning to tip the scales in their favour, over a battle hardened veteran, who can often be their own father.
A mature Bull can reach 9 foot tall and is always terrifically strong, even able to wrestle a fully grown Troll to the ground, killing them with their bare hands. Such is the killing power and resolve of these creatures that some Bulls have gone down in history as the greatest War lords that the Middle Plain has ever seen.
Blue Orc Hags
Though it is rare, some Snortmaidens are born barren and unable to conceive at all. These unblessed young female Orcs are unlike normal females in appearance, having a tinted blue complexion instead of a green one. They are skinny, bony and considered to be quite ugly, even by Orc standards. These vile creatures are called Hags by all their kind because of their looks and inability to produce young, however, Hags have natural magical abilities unlike the rest of their sisters, making them still very useful on the battlefield.
Barren Snortmaidens appeared at the same time as the Blue Grunts did, when the Orcs where driven into the Black Lands. It is believed that all blue Orcs, including Hags are the result of their mothers consuming too many Tears, warping their unborn young, and giving their young magical powers, marked by their blue complexion.
Just like their blue brothers, Hags are insane and so are driven out with their brothers to live on the rim of their caravan’s borders, following it wherever it goes.
Male Blue Orcs, just like any other male, love and worship their females and so Hags become the Blue Queens of the blue hoards, which constantly hover around an Orc caravan’s borders.
In times of war, because they have a loyalty to their mothers and it is in their interests, these Blue Queens lead their rabbles into battle following the rest of their caravan. They may consider themselves as queen of their kind, but they know their place and are totally obedient to their iron mothers, and follow their every command to the letter.
Orc Runts (Halfwits)
There is always at least one born in every litter, a nipper who is a bit weaker, a bit slower and just that bit dimmer than the rest of their kin. Yes, there really is a runt in every litter.
In fact, snortmaidens are judged largely on the quality of the young they bear and if more than two runts at a time are born, it can bring great shame upon a Snortmaiden.
Yet, no matter how pathetic runts are, they still have their uses. There are always plenty of very easy but hazardous jobs for Runts to do, especially on the front line, and why waste a good Grunt when a Runt can do it instead?
