Probably the least commonly seen race in Selvug, Half-orcs are the progeny of Human and Orc parents. Humans overwhelmingly live in the cities of The Imperium. Orcs live almost exculsively in the Howling Mountains. However, some Humans have settled in the foothills leading to increased contact between the races. While Orcs are considered enemies of The Imperium, the legal status of Half-orcs is murky at best. Their Human parentage entitles them to claim client status, but few do. Most of these people were born and raised in the wilderness and often have little interest in the laws of the largely urban and civilized Imperium.
In the years since the discovery of NorthReach, it has become something of a haven for Half-orcs. Outcasts elsewhere in Imperial society, they have found a place for themselves as laborers, guards and sailors. This has afforded them the opportunity to carve out their own enclave on the north side of Beach Head.
