Name: Strong Naguk, of the Small-Toothed Clan (Dead)
Race: Dus-gali Orc
Gender: Male
Bio: Naguk was the strong (a chieftain of sorts) of a once powerful clan known as the Small-toothed. When paloria awoke at the start of the great war, the lava overtook Naguk's village and destroyed his people. The Small-toothed escaped only barely into the Desert of Yuuk, where only a few survived starvation and death at the hands of the Lech. Lead by Naguk, these survivors would find their way to the Desert of Lech to answer the call of H'mog to war. There he and the Small-toothed proved themselves as compitent hunters and protectors, battling their old enemy the Lech.

Now that the war is over, Naguk is among the many explorers sent out in search of a gift The Great Maiden had promised the elders of the Dus-Gal and the Ralaamites after losing their homes; A holy land of plenty to reward them for their outstanding perseverance in the war.
Motivations: To find a new home where he can live unchallenged. Much of the orcs existance has been spent as a underdog race of sorts; They took animals from foreign tamers, metal from foreign smiths, structures from foreign sciences, and produced nothing for the world. Naguk wants nothing more than to prove that Orcs truly are great.
Strengths: A skilled warrior, as the Strong he served as a general of sorts during and before the Great War. He has a firmly tactical mind.
Weaknesses: Not great at communication. Naguk speaks quickly, curtly and simply. He often doesn't consider other's feelings; He merely speaks harshly and expects harshness in return.

WAAAAAAAAAA-

Race Name: Orcs
Population: ~2,433,000
Age of Maturity: 15
Life Expectancy: 80
Overview: A warlike, harsh race of domineering soldiers. Orcs fight for the furtherment of their own ways always. Among the orcs two nations have risen to particular prominence: M'jhuduay and Urzegibir.

M'jhuduay is a land of the dishonest and thieves. A dark place in Idain that prides themselves on political wrangling and ripping off others, the orcs of M'jhuduay are power-mongers first and foremost.

Urzegibir is a harsh land of warriors. Focused on their own divine providence, These orcs are strong defenders of the old ways of their species.
Biology: Orcs are sinewy Grey creatures made in the literal image of H'mog. They have large lower canines that often protrude upwards, and wide, long ears.

Orcs are sensitive to sunlight, and naturally become diseased in prolonged, intense sunlight over very long periods of time. To compensate for the natural discomfort in sunlight and therefor lack of Vitamin D, fishing for fattier fish such as salmon and mackerel are large industry in Orcish culture for there mood-boosting effect. They are considered a delicacy for this.
Universal Abilities: Strong will and keen tactics, and an urge and determination to complete there cause. An Orc never surrenders the fight, even if he was on the wrong side.
Universal Weaknesses: Sallow skin that allows for easier disease and damage from intense sunlight, this makes orcs generally prefer the dark places.
Culture: Very warlike, strong willed and often belligerent, for a non-orc to assert authority over an Orc is considered a grave insult, and dominance is considered an ultimate value.
Religion: The most common deity worshiped among orcs is the Great Maiden. Worship of the Great Maiden is usually lead by a two casts of priests: The Ozgul (or Warpriests) which tend to remain in solitude and are always male warriors, and the Shig-Ul (or Priestesses) which act as spiritual guidance for the many and a church body, doing administrative duties of the religion. Shig-Ul are always female.
Military Prowess: 200,000 warriors in each major country: M'Jhuduay and Urzegibir. each one is bulk (55%) basic warrior, trained in the Warscythe (short, curved sword like a scythe), the Javelin, and the Doubleblade (Long heavy pole with two hook like heads on both ends). Warriors more seasoned often focus on just one and then more exotic weapons, including bows and foreign designed weapons. These warriors mostly act as special forces. Companies of orcs are often accompanied by by a Shig-Ulozg, or a War priestess who communes with the Great Maiden for wisdom. Remaining conscripts are given crude pikes and spears to head up the front lines of their march. Finally, a variety of warbeasts are often deployed. Raal-hounds, great and vicious dogs of war, are bred and of course the holy Quilbeast (beasts with long, needle-like quills they throw like javelins) are kept for sieges and great battles.

Race Name: Sirens
Population: ~485,000
Age of Maturity: 25
Life Expectancy: 185
Overview: Vicious and self-serving, Sirens are never to be fully trusted. They have a culture of self-seeking, and any who get their way are often found on the dinner table.
Biology: Sirens are always female, and possess such powerful genes that they are always sirens despite what the father was. Since sirens do not produce men, it is an extremely common -and necessary- practice to take men from other races, preferably humans.

Sirens are well suited carnivores. With strong, sharp teeth and the gut to stomach most predatory meats, such as Bear, Lion and unfortunately Human.

Sirens are also noted for having extremely beautiful voices and forms.
Universal Abilities: Sirens are blessed with several powers; First their mighty wings allow them to fly with a little effort, they possess the ability to filter out air underwater (albeit at lower capacity than above) and contain this water in their lungs, and a musk gland that creates a powerful Allomone (a type of hormone that affects other species) that muddles thought in those who detect it.
Universal Weaknesses: Sirens have a love of themselves above all. Sirens are rarely happy with being in a low position, So life in Salavena is a vicious and dangerous one, fraught with ambition and turmoil. They often turn to escapism and eldritch deals and are particularly susceptible to evil influence to achieve what is usually a short-sighted end.
Culture: Sirens have a general devaluation of the weak, elderly and male. Any of those things usually end up as food in times of little resources. Those who cannot compete and make themselves useful to the community are often made useful when food runs short, and the general philosophy see males of any races as second class to females. They value utilitarianism and themselves above all else.
Religion: Sirens inherited Eellae's worst property; a selfish lust for power over others. It is because of this that they have very little religious practices, and though always recognize the gods and particularly Eellae, turning to her when times are difficult, Sirens live in a very selfish culture with little thought to morals.
Military Prowess: A group of about 35,000 huntresses guard Salavena, trained with small, concealable weapons mostly, and thin throw-able spears secondly. Most are conscripted, but the few that volunteer are often given instant leadership roles. Bows and arrows are often quite effective in siren-make, but are usually reserved for times of war.
