Orcs are a race of corrupted elves transformed into evil servants by the dark lords of Middle-Earth.

They can best be described as a mixture of a monster, ogre and demon.

They are only about two-thirds the size of a human but are extremely strong and can use their long arms to strike and keep a safe distance from their opponents during battle.

These evil mythical creatures will use anything in battle in order to destroy and conquer.

They are efficient fighters with varying kinds of weapons including using their strong deadly bite to terminate their foes. They have absolutely no fear of death and are extremely reckless.

Large armies of these monsters would pursue the bearer of the ring of power, which once belonged to Sauron. They would travel and battle in such large groups that they would often outnumber the forces of good.

Their recklessness would cause many to die in battle – but their sheer numbers made them more than often unbeatable.

Below is an awesome short video showing these creatures in action in the popular movie adaptation of Lord of the Rings.
