An illegitimate cross between an orc and a human, a half orc is shunned by all society. Most often these freaks of nature wind up as criminals. Half orcs are usually paid thugs, thieves or assassins. They can often be found high in the ranks of many of Derlith's criminal organizations. They are not as agile as some humans, but are often quite strong and sturdy. Most of them have bad attitude as well, brought on by an inferiority complex due to no one accepting them.
