Before the War of the Immortals, Orcus was a demigod of Death, and was very handsome, a fact celebrated by those who worshiped him, calling him 'The Fair Face of Death.' However, he resented being overlooked in favor of other gods of Death and the Underworld in his pantheon such as Hades or Thanatos, and it was this that lead him to side with Umbrae in the War of the Immortals. When it was over, the Olympians dealt with Orcus and his followers in a horrific fashion: due to his hunger for power, he and his followers were transformed into corpulent, and hideous demons before casting them into Hell along with the rest of Demonkind. Although a shell of his former self, Orcus still retains power over the dead, making him a prime choice for those seeking Demonic power.
