Widely considered a savage race, Orcs do have some rights as sentient humanoid creatures. In the New World, many orcs sometimes band together to create orc communities for mutual protection and support.

Individual orcs have a reputation for being disorderly, prone to drinking, and working only for money rather than for higher cause. Since these individuals are the most visual orcs within the Colony they form the stereotype to which other orcs are normally held.

Kasius, a member of the Water Barons, is an orc.
