I know most humans and elves come from places outside tamriel but where do the orcs come form. Or were they one of the races that was on tamriel before the other races.

Orcs and a brief history of them:

The Orcs were supposedly created when the Daedric Prince Boethiah who defeated the Aldmeri god Trinimac, transforming him into Malacath and his faithful, the Orsimer, into Orcs. When the transformation occurred is unclear, but Orcs have been inhabiting the Iliac Bay region since the early years of the First Era. Some reports say Orcs were in Morrowind acting as raiders and mercenaries as early as 1E 700. It is known that the Aldmer had already colonized the mainland of High Rock during the Merethic Era before Orcs emerged. They were viewed as a constant threat to the other races, especially after the Ra Gada drove many Orcs out of Hammerfell and greatly strengthened Orsinium. Several kingdoms banded together in High Rock and destroyed the first Orc kingdom in 1E 980. Without a home, prejudice against them was even greater.

Gortwog gro-Nagorm created the second incarnation, sometimes called Nova Orsinium, in 3E 399. He gathered enough power to force Emperor Uriel Septim VII to formally recognize Orsinium as an equal of the other lesser kingdoms of the Iliac Bay region. During the Warp in the West, Orsinium was one of the four kingdoms to gain control of the Numidium, conquering the surrounding kingdoms and baronies and swearing loyalty to the Emperor. Early in the Fourth Era, Orsinium was once again sacked by the Redguards and Bretons and presumably eliminated, and many Orc refugees were escorted to Skyrim by the Imperial Legion.

Yeah Orcs come from when the Chimer left the Aldmer society and Triminac took his followers to sort of get them back. Anyway, Boethei came a long and 'ate' Triminac then tricked his followers into worshiping him. Triminac became Malacath and the followers were cursed/transformed into Orcs. They are a type of elf.


‎I must not fear. Fear is the mid-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total annihilation. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Basically the Orcs god was eaten, digested and morphed into Malacath daedric prince of the ''Ugly'' (disliked?) races and is worshipped by orcs and ogres.
