Firstname - Uzgrok (pronunciation: ooze-grock-gro-ya-mog).

Surname - Gro-Yamog.

Sex - Male.

Race - Orismer

Age - 30.

Occupation - Adventurer.

Faction - Orsinium and the Orcish strongholds.

Appearance - Uzgrok is a giant even among the Orcs standing around 7'3 give or take a few inches with lots of mass to support it. His "tusks" are about three inches above his lips and a rather square broad jaw and dense bones, particularly in his skull. His body is covered in many callouses from wearing his heavy armour and swinging a blacksmiths hammer and his skin has lots of scars and other signs of many battles. His hands and feet are abnormally large and he wears some Orcish tribal war tattoos on his face in different but somehow brutal design. He also has black hair done in long dreadlocks though occasionally he'll do it in a mohawk of sorts straight down the middle of his head and his skin is an unusually deep shade of green.

Equipment - Uzgrok wears a full set of inch thick Orichalc armour that he crafted himself in his cultural style and has a large Orcish tower shield also made of Orichalcum sharing the same craftsmanship and thickness of his armour. His weapons of choice are a very large sword made from Orichalcum as well plus he also carries a large two-handed warhammer strapped to his back with a rectangular head made from Orichalcum with several studs on either end of the head.

Personality - Uzgrok is very slow to trust anyone though once he does trust someone he treats them like blood kin. He can get angered easily at times and if a sensitive topic is mentioned or something he greatly values is insulted he can become explosively violent. He does have a soft spot for certain things and can crumble easily if certain things are said.

Social Background/Backstory - Uzgrok grew up in a stronghold in the Wrothgarien mountains recognized for their strong warriors and Uzgrok showed the stronghold's tradition even at a young age.

He was trained young as was Orcish custom to fight so that one day he could surpass his father and become chief though like most of his kin he showed a high affinity for smithing at a young age and was trained in the art when he wasn't practising combat.

He enjoyed his life at the stronghold but it did not last long.

When Uzgrok was about sixteen a clearly drunken Imperial showed up at the walls demanding the stronghold's unconditional surrender, when questioned the Imperial drew his sword and charged at the gate guards who in response put an arrow in the man's head. As it turned out the Imperial was the commander of a large battalion of Imperial soldiers nearby who upon hearing of their commanders death, who they were quite fond of, attacked and razed the stronghold.

During the attack Uzgrok tried to stay and fight using his skills but his father wouldn't have it, he was too young and brash at the time but Uzgrok couldn't disobey a direct order from his father so he was forced to flee the burning stronghold as the chief was cut down on the stronghold's steps.

Uzgrok wandered for weeks in the mountains until he eventually came across the great city of Orsinium which he had only heard legends of told by the wise women, he wasn't even sure that it existed.

He lived in Orsinuim for several years as a blacksmith and was mentored for two years after his arrival to finish the teaching he could no longer receive from the stronghold. As he practised smithing he realized that he had grown out of practise in combat training so he trained to fight and use heavy armour.

At the age of twenty seven Uzgrok decided it was time to put his skills to the test and crafted the greatest armour and weapons that he could, the same ones he wears now, and became an adventurer travelling across Cyrodiil, High Rock, Skyrim and Hammerfell.

He died at the ripe age of 65 after rebuilding his old stronghold and collecting a tribe and was slain by his son as was Orcish tradition so that he may become the next chief.

Best Memory - Finding Orsinium and his life there.

Worst Memory - Watching his father get cut down.

Skills - Skilled with smithing, heavy armour, one-handed and two-handed weapons and with a shield.

Challenges for the Character - Not letting others get inside his head and exploit his weaknesses, he has a lot of physical strength but he's rather susceptible to those who are smart enough to get inside his head.

Birthsign - Warrior.

Religious Views - Follows Malacath.

Political Views - Uzgrok follows the decisions made by his leaders, they are warriors not politicians though he believes that Emeric has proven his strength and is worthy of ruling.

RUMOURS

-Uzgrok has two brothers which escaped the stronghold attack with though they parted ways after that and seldom reunite with.

-He once fought a Redguard warrior for three days and three nights until the two called a truce so they didn't die of dehydration after which they became fast friends.

-He was born left-handed though at a young age he broke his left hand in a smithing accident and rather than waiting for it to heal used his right hand so that he may continue his art and ever since uses his right hand.

-Uzgrok's favourite animal is sheep, rams to be more specific.

-He once forged a magnificent sword with the intent of giving it to the king of Orsinium but never did.

-The wise women of his stronghold say it took a dozen axe wounds to finally fell him and he died smiling after losing his fight against his son for chiefdom.

I've added an "Other" section and another weapon, no true Orc leaves home without his blunt weapon ;)

i have a question (im not an tes rp'er, and im do not know every single inch in the lore). but orcs are a sub-race of the aldmer, and aldmers, bosmer, dunmer and altmer can live for huandreds of years, does that also applies by orcs (i remember that orc in winterhold, and after reading a bit on him i discovered his 300 years old)

That's a pretty good question and personally I've never thought of that before.

My guess would be that they inherited some form of longevity (increased lifetime) from the Aldmer but like the other descendent races that you listed it's been reduced but from what information is available I would assume that their increased longevity is much less than other elves, maybe about 200 years is the absolute maximum age for an Orismer to achieve.

Also though remember that most traditional Orcs would prefer a "good death" thus they would have a tendency to die much earlier rather than become old.

The librarian at the collage of Winterhold would probably have used some form of magic to extend his life given the nature of his occupation.

Made a few updates, changed his mace to a hammer (because no true Orc doesn't have a hammer ;) ) and added how he died as well as a rumours section.

I like how he has a "death date" and that (I'm guessing) him and Cyrus are connected.

Not so much a date but an age of when he died and I won't outright say they're connected but one can assume... *winks mischievously*

Well the armour should be obvious and he carries the sword on his left hip, the shield on his arm and the hammer on his back. When he uses the hammer he'll likely throw or drop the shield then pick it up later.
