Half-orcs are, on average, a bit taller and heavier than humans. Most still have prominent jaws and tusks for canine teeth, albeit smaller than the pure orcs. They are looked upon as bestial humans, while orcs call them “just another pink-skin”.

They are known to possess both orcish strength and human intelligence. However, they are also often shunned by society, human and orcish. Those who stand out, found a way to be accepted, most likely using one of the mentioned characteristics.

Many live as outcasts, learning to adapt to the world as it is. They can be a perfect match for wild unexpected life, full of adventures. Some also choose the calling of a mercenary, satisfying both wanderlust and bloodlust.
