Orcus, Demon Prince of Traitors, takes the appearance of a hunched, black-skinned humanoid with jutting lower fangs, bat-like wings, a tail, and short horns. The story goes that he was originally a fire giant and helped Surtur in his creation of the orcs, who bear his name. When he tried to betray his master and take control of the army, however, he was discovered and killed. So powerful and skilled at betrayal was he, however, that his spirit overthrew the original Lord of Betrayal and took his place. In the South he is called Ashmogh.


His are the souls of those who betrayed the trust of others, the oath-breakers and back-stabbers.


His followers are the Nethorks.
