Uruk Hai Name Generator & Backstories

“No, that’s no mere orc, lieutenant. That is an Uruk Hai, a kind of orc that stops for nothing but food and carnage. Even worse, that’s no ordinary Uruk Hai but a leader of great renown who conquered all the lands to the east. That is Oggosh, or Oggosh the Slaver as the dwarves call him.”

While the Uruks lived elsewhere before, said to first appear in Mordor, when one mentions the Uruk Hai they most likely refer to the ones that were bred by the great wizard Saruman, the same ones that made the main bulk of his evil army forces.

They are brutal, and merciless, and live in a reality where the strongest lead and nothing else matters. When serving a higher power they can show a decent amount of discipline, and having large numbers on their side poses a large threat to anyone.

While they like feasting, drinking, and boasting, fighting is what they love, and their very nature propels them forward into situations where they can make a name of themselves, with names like Baurzauf, Ligderg, Driggauth, Azbauth, and Rofdac.

Basically born and bred for warfare, these bulky humanoid creatures are a pure terror on the battlefield. Often in large numbers, and the main part of any such army, they lack fear which allows them to perform with utmost competence in any fight they are in. The strongest get to rule and strength is and should be the only thing one should be valued by, and their whole life keeps circling around that very fact. Think about how the creature came into existence, did they have a childhood at all, what kind of a personality they have, what might be their goals, and think of a name worthy of the tenacious brutality that is just waiting to be unleashed at any given moment.
