The territorial North Tusk tribe of Orcs reside in Avendyr's Pass.
The ruler of each Orc clan is pulled from a class of warriors known as the Kaa’ruk, who are imbued with a spiritually-sourced strength. The Kaa’ruk and their order of priestesses are often female, and the hierarchy of each tribe is often matriarchal as a result.
Terminus Orcs are spread across the planet in loose pockets of varying power, but they all share a strong common ancestry. Even though they live in relative autonomy, all tribes are bound by a pact known as the Bloodsworn Covenant, which ensures the far flung populations will band together if ever so commanded.
