In this world, an alternate history began when magic seeped into the realm from another dimension. Along with it came monsters, demons, dark magic and destruction. But, despite all the bad that came, goodness always prevails. Right now, most everyone is living in a time of peace. When the magic came, it altered some people, and now there are several versions of people. Centaurs roam the fields of Akengran. Mermaids and Mermen swim in the Helengrad sea. Avian Humans soar above the mountains of Darendell. And just about thirty years ago a mere adventured found a new race of human cow hybrids, secluded in in a small valley, lost in the Fallenrock Mountains. Beside men were the races of Elves and Orcs. Most Elvish society became affluent due to their skill in craftsmanship, and the humans became just as powerful due to their innovation. Orcs did not see that as a priority, and while there were several large Orcish towns, most orcs lived the traditional way, which was living in small roaming tribes. So Man and Elves divided land into kingdoms and factions, and the orcs were mostly left alone. All races generally do not interfere with one another, and were once allies during the dark age.
On the continent, there are two species of Orc; The Snow Orc, and The Woodland Orc. Both are quite similar, but there are minor differences in their overall anatomy, and culture. The Snow Orcs have a paler green skin tone, shorter ears are the most noticeable differences. The Woodland Orcs are the most common since the Orc Lands comprises of mostly forest. These orcs have a much more vibrant green skin, and longer ears. Their cultures differ slightly, but there has been no recorded evidence of waring between them.
The reason that orc civilization has been able to be so free of other races was due to their lands being innately more dangerous. The very soil was filled with a chemical that was left from the volcano in the center of their lands, which is what gives orcs their green skin. Over time, orcs adapted to live here, but other races didn't, and the chemical is quite dangerous for long periods of time for humans and elves.
The largest orc tribes tend to be woodland orcs, and they will construct a large wooden wall around their camp made from large pointed and jagged logs, and then construct permeant homes made from rock, bone, wood and leather. These towns sometimes got as large as three hundred orcs, but most were around a hundred or so. Even this was still uncommon for Orcs since almost all of their kind lived nomadically.
Orcs in the wild will live in groups ranging from twenty to fifty, and will join other groups for a season, then break up, and form new ones. So many orcs will come and go through different tribes as they migrate every two years. Once they camp down, they tend to occupy a large area for such a small number of orcs. They will all agree on once central location where they can all congregate and talk with others, but will then go out and find their own personal area since they are territorial. Often times they will construct small tents, live in caves, inside fallen logs, or even under the stars if the weather is nice.
Orc young are far different than human or elves, and that is due to their strength and instincts. Orc mothers will only raise their young for up to four years, and then their young will leave on their own. Since Orcs are the dominant species of their region, and there are no predators that can hunt orcs, this allows the young to venture off on their own. And very rarely do the parents ever meet their offspring again, which sounds odd to the humans and elves, but this is just how a different culture operates.
Once these young orcs venture out, they will find other young like them, and will stick with their kind. Young orc boys will pack together with other young boys, and the females will do the same. This will help give them the survival skills, and teach them on how to interact with others of their kind. As the adults begin to migrate, the young will follow behind them by several miles and remain in packs of two to five, often times packs will grow much larger depending on what needs are present.
During the development of young orc boys, they start to practice their dominance which they will need when they are adults. This is usualy done in many ways, such as fighting, hunting and more. The strangest practice that orc boys engage in, is singling out the weaker orc males and then target them, and over a few years time, they will be turned into almost hyper-feminine orcs, and this is what separates Orcs most greatly from Humans and Elves. These feminine male orcs play a vital role in the training of orcs in dominance and power, since they are perfect to practice on. How it begins is the growing orcs will fight and determine who is the alpha, then they will continue this until everyone knows their place. This will then show who is at the bottom, and their new life begins. Orcs, being from a completely different society have different ways of interacting with others of their kind, even relations amongst the same gender is much different
In this instance, the more dominant orc boys will hunt, and bring back food for the young orc females, and weaker orc males, since they are unable to hunt. The dominant males will keep the best meats for themselves, and for females they plan to court one day, and their companions. This leaves the feminine orc boys to have to side with the stronger males, or else they would starve. And a majority of what they end up being given to eat is the fat from the kills. This causes their metabolism to change, and adapt to the high fat. So over several years, the lean feminine orc boys will develope absurdly large rears, with immensely thick thighs. Some of the fat develops on their belly, breasts, and lips, but mostly on their rear and thighs. Once they get this large, hunting is now impossible, and this causes them to become even more helpless, and reliant on orc males, so this continues their consumption of fat, and this process continues on and on until they are the quiet, obedient submissive class of the orcs. Some of the actions that goes on may be unsettling to civilized people, but the feminine orcs seem to be quite content with their lives, and all orcs see nothing strange with the activity.
Despite what you might think, the male orcs are rarely sexually attracted to these feminine males, and usualy kept them around as sort of a prize or proof of status. This was because females found males more attractive if they had a feminine male with them, which shows that they can protect and feed their future mate well. Females however are still sexually attracted to the feminine males along with the dominant ones. However, the females would take on dominant positions with these feminine males and practice dominating them. This was done in many ways, but rarely involved actualy mating or having full sex. Most orc females seemed to enjoy 'teasing' them, along with taking on mothering roles and practice for when they have offspring. Often times, young orc boys will be very busy being taken from the males, to the females, since both highly prize them.
Despite all the attention they get, most of these feminine orcs will remain virgins for decades before they ever mate, despite the fact that they are have more sexual activity. Some of the feminine orc boys love all the attention they could get, but some just liked to live quietly and enjoy the silence of nature since being a feminine orc can be very stressful sometimes.
