Oroka (oar-oh-KAH)

Filthy, disgusting creatures. Barbarians that do nothing but rape and pillage.

The Oroka are a strong, monstrous humanoid species found throughout Solia.

Basic Information


The Oroka are a two-legged, two-armed humanoid species with strong musculature. Powerfully built, oroka typically stand just a few inches taller than most Humans but have much greater muscle mass, their broad shoulders, and thick, brawny hips often giving them a slightly lurching gait. They typically have dull green skin, coarse dark hair, beady red eyes, and protruding, tusk-like teeth. Oroka consider scars a mark of distinction and frequently use them as a form of body art.

Biological Traits

Average oroka life expectancy is under thirty years, typically dying in violent ways. Natural life span can be similar to that of Humans, with a maximum life expectation of 80-100 years.

Genetics and Reproduction

Oroka mating, much like other humanoid methods, is done sexually with the female carrying the offspring for an average term of 10 months. Much like their daily life, oroka mating tends to be violent and often causing injury and, in some cases, death. The Oroka are capable of mating with other humanoids; when they mate with Humans, the resulting offspring are the Tolteka.

Growth Rate & Stages

The oroka mature physically at roughly the same rate as Human children. Emotionally, oroka tend to mature faster due to their violent upbringings. Oroka are considered mature adults at around the age of ten to twelve years, most after completing a coming of age ritual.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Oroka are an omnivorous species, though most have a strong preference for meat. One ethnic group is pescetarian.

Additional Information

Social Structure

Oroka believe that strength makes the value of the individual. Oroka men brutalize orc women, and both abuse children and elders, on the grounds that anyone too feeble to fight back deserves little more than a life of suffering. Surrounded at all times by bitter enemies, oroka cultivate an attitude of indifference to pain, vicious tempers, and a fierce willingness to commit unspeakable acts of vengeance against anyone who dares to defy them.

Average Intelligence

Oroka tend to be somewhat duller, more imprudent, and uncharismatic than most races.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Oroka are capable of seeing perfectly in the dark up to 60 feet (18.288 meters). However, they are also prone to light-sensitivity, being dazzled in areas of bright sunlight.

Civilization and Culture


The Oroka were a mighty people, united through the common goal of life and balance. One with their environs, the Oroka of Solia were as varied as the flora and fauna of the world around them, ruled by druids and shamans. Then darkness came into their world. Conflicts from the east, between the Nuaira and the Ezirandi Shadowhunters began to darken the skies beyond the great cliffs. The Oroka Nations of the eastern coast fled before the boots of war, retreating into the land that had sustained them, while the remaining people watched with a wary, if indifferent eye until the world cried out in pain. A grievous injury was done on the eastern plains, and in its wake, the darkness came, in the form of man: dusky-skinned people, small of stature and weak of body, but strong in the ways of magic. The Shadowhunters enslaved or destroyed those Oroka they came across. Many nations of the Oroka rose up to defend themselves, only to vanish before the might of shadow, fire, and death.
