Not all orcs on Virthys were as civilized as the Ember Orcs. And the more tribal savages had offspring with other races, in particular humans, just as on other worlds. During the War of Vallenis, many of them became mercenaries. Half-orc chieftains sometimes led their entire clans into war, for glory and treasure. The last few decades on Virthys are known to many orcs as the Days of Blood. While this allowed them to live as mighty warriors, the death toll was so high that the orcs have an ambivalent feeling to this time period. Some half-orcs found their way to more civilized lands, or even actively retreated from the bloodshed. And then there are, of course, the offspring of Ember Orcs with other races. The Ember Half-Orcs are seen as valuable members of society, and treated just as everyone else. The most common variant is offspring with humans. But Ember Half-Orcs with other races are also known.
