Other names: Grey orcs
Alligance: Dark Legion of DemonsOzcuras
are goblinoids of the orc family, who where created by the demon dark lord of Entartea, breeded from a mix of grey and green orcs, goblins, kanovs, drows, humans and dark elves, being then considered a demon creation.
They are originary from Entartea, but extended in most of the region of Polforia and the north of the continent of Aels.
Ozcuras were goblinoids characterized for their grey skin, black or grey hair, short fangs and proportions very similar to elves in the case of females. Together with the Koktos and Ur Dur, they compress the family of the daemonibii orcii, or goblinoids created by the demons. They range extends from Navatiak to Zagäl in Polforia, being originary from Entartea. They had an average living span of 25-30 years.
The Ozcuras size and weight can vary considerably, due the reason of having been breed from several species and races by the demons; however normally the females are about the size of the Koktos or black orcs of Tok-Thoria, and they weight up about half the weight of the males, who are considerably larger. These orcss are the most sexually dimorphic of the then seven orc races.
When reaching 8 years old, a ozcurilla, a ozcura youngling is already a adolescent, and at 12, they are adults.
In the Ozcuras society, the women are the warriors and workers: however, their culture truly is extremly patriarcal:
there is about one adult Ozcuros, -male- every 8 or 9 ozcuras: Normally, they born in the proportion of 2:8, but less than half of them reach adulthood:
the ozcuras are the workers, the gatherers, the artisans and the warriors: the males dedicate to fight each other for herds of Ozcuras, they breed, eat or sleep, hunting as well sometimes to pass the time:
The ozcuros establish and defend distinct terriotories in the Ozcuras pits and settlements, were they continuosly will make threat displays toward neighboars and intruders to protect both territories and females, wih aside from fist and armored fights will be about vocalizations, head shaking, stares and bluff lunges.
normally, a Ozcuro will have a herd of 3 to 18 ozcuras, being the more sucesful the larger older males:
For this, there aren't love among these orcs: the males may pic the females when they return from war or forage and coerce them into their territories and herd, stealing them as well from other males, as for them the herd aren't only for reproduction but as well have an economic value, as the females ozcuras work -something the males doesn't do-.
the herds are compressed of the Ozcuro, his ozcuras and the ozcurillas and pups, and among the female ozcuras is common to fight to be the main ozcura of the herd.
The males that failed to secure territories and herds, most often sub-adult ozcuros, will cause group raids in attemps to change the status-quo and gain access to females, and sometimes they will abduct ozcurillas and pups, in an attemp to control the mothers.
Created to be slaves of the demons, all of them served lords of the Dark Legion, except some few deserters, and the males leaved their ozcuras go to fullfil their duties, or otherwise they will feel the consecuences:
During campaigns, as the males stay behind with their other females and in their territories, is said the ozcuras to act extremly agressive towards the females and pups of other races and species, meanwhile they will be very open to other male minions of the dark legion -as green and black orcs, for example, humans and many others- as well sometimes prisioners, and this explain the further process of hibridation among the ozcuras.
As well, being creations of demons, many of their more orcish social conducts were modified, as for example the bathing habits, as they were forced to bath daily, meanwhile the black orcs for example will never touch the water if they can.
As orcs, they prefeer to eat meat -and don't have problem if its from sentient people, or other ozcuras if they aren't from their pit-, but they can be omnivore.
There where many Bazrrod, lords of the Daimons, that served under the banner of the Dark Legion of Demons under Sataan, as well other demon lords as Satman the Apprentice, who acted as generals and predilect servants of their master.
One of these minor demon lords was Tulkhut, General of the Dark Legion sended during the Kanovhook war, the wars between the dark legion and the kanovs for the supremacy in Polforia, to defeat the kanovs of the tribe of the Konolards in Entartea:
In the first battle in 1.768 since the aparition of humans, in the Fields of Entartea, the army of Tulkhut of 12.000 demons was defeated by 30.000 Konolard kanov warriors.
Knowing that failura wasn't an option for the Great Demon Lords, paying with his live or worse if he returned emptyhanded to Morod, he gathered the remanent of his forces and fortifief himself in some forestry hills near the place of his defeat in Entartea. From this position, he tried to launch new attacks against the Konolards, being defeated and forced to retreat again to his fortified field, were he resisted a serie of assaults of the Konolards.
Slowly, the entrenched camp become a true fortress, defeating two new Konolard assaults: But meanwhile the Kanovs quickly reemplaced their casualities, the demons under Tulkuth were every time less and less.
To ask for reinforcements to Morod was to accept failure, so he prefeered to stay there and leave his forces be killed, rather than return defeated:
He needed more troops, or otherwise he couldn't achieve the task... So, he decided to grow is own army in the pits of Entartea:
He ordered his minions to raid nearby areas, looking for slaves and test subjects, returning the folllowers of Tulkuth with kanovs, humans, orcs, goblins, some elves and surface drows from the Canaia tribe.
Tulkuth, along with his more powerful warlocks, alchemists, nigromancer and sorcerers dragged the unfortunate prisioners to the dark dungeons of Entartea, where they were locked with the demon lord and his more powerful followers:
After three months and more, as the troops of Tulkuth awaited eagerly outside of the dungeon, he leaved, alone, the pits of Entartea, with his energy completely depleted: he slowly walked to his throne, where he sit down without saying a word: No one know one word more of what happened to the companions of Tulkhut, or about the prisioners.
But 12 years later, meanwhile the lonely demon fortress resisted the Konoloard assaults, Tulkuth opened the doors of the pits, and from the deep dungeons of Entartea came out an army compossed of warrior women of grey skin and black hair, created who know using what kind of demonic arts.
This first army of 4.000 amazons was send against the Konolards, being guided by a Skavo demon captain of low importance called Ralhat.
Quickly, this army begun to raid, destroy, burn and loot the lands of the Konolards, who after 24 years of keeping the demons fighting in a defensive way, didn't expected an offensive like this, being slow in gathering their forces, meanwhiles their farms and villages were being destroyed and the inhabitants cruely being killed and tortured by the demonic creatures:
Finally, the Konolardos faced the army of creations of Tulkuth that the Konolards begun to call ozcuras for their dark skin and hearths.
In the battle of the fields of Hilán, in 1792 a.a.H, the kanov annihilated the army of Ralhat, who was killed and quartered, meanwhile almost all of the ozcuras were killed: the few survivors run to the forests, trying to reach Entartea, but most were killed by the Konolardos who hunted them down.
When Tulkhut learned about the defeat of his army, he just opened again the doors of the dungeons, marching outside of them a second, larger army of Ozcuras.
again, they attacked and looted the lands of the Konolardos, until the kanov army reached them and defeated this second army as well:
After these two campaigns of the demons, the Great Kanov of the Konolards, Grëdker the Black, decided to expulsate in a definitive way the demons from these lands, bringing all the warriors of his tribe to the woods of Entartea:
With 25.000 warriors, Grëdker the Black reached the walls of Entartea the 1796 a.a.H, assaulting the walls with violence, after victory or death:
In their furious assaults, they conquered the exterior fortifications, even if they lacked in experience or equipment to assault a fortress, and continued the pressure.
In the end, only the black tower of Tulkhut remained: they breached the walls, only to find the opened doors of the deep dungeons of Entartea, where Tulkhut hidded... and were a complete army of Ozcuras was hidding:
Then, the surprised kanovs were pushed back, but they were trapped within the walls of Entartea: other army of ozcuras, hidden in the forests, cut their escape routes, being killed all the warriors of the Konolards.
After that bloody victory, Tulkhut occuped the lands of the defeated, annexing them into the Dark Legion of Demons.
He returned, 48 years later, to Morod, finally, with victory, becoming the governor of Entartea.
Soon, the Ozcuras will become a quite popular expendable and cheap soldier among the demon lords of central Polforia.
