The Voldur

So you're a... Voldur. Yeah... that. How did that... Mom was adventurous, Dad was lucky. Ah. Can I.... NO YOU MAY NOT CALL ME AN ORLF! -Bob the Paladin talking with his companion Thrag the Voldur

Physical Description

Voldur often are taller than humans, around 5 to 6 feet tall, with pointed ears and olive tinted skin. They maintain the natural beauty of Elves but tend to be more muscular due to their Orcish heritage. Occasionally, they grow tusks. Voldur have hair colorations that range through white, black, dark green, and dark orange. They have no facial hair and little body hair.

History

The Voldur do not have a history of their own, but instead share in the culture of both Elves and Orcs.

Society

Some Voldur can make a name for themselves as bodyguards and mercenaries in Elven society, however they are relatively few and far between as they are mostly ostracized as abominations.

In Orc tribes the Voldur are ironically better accepted than one might initially think. This is because in Orc tribes, the strong rule the weak, and the more intelligent Voldur can use their cunning to make their way up to the rank of chieftain. This is more common in the Badlands where tribes of wild Elves and Orcs often commingle.

Some Voldur are shunned from both societies, and instead turn to settlements of other races, such as humans and even, amusingly, Dwarves, who seem to be fairly accepting of the mixed breed that incorporates everything they respect in their two enemies with none of the pomp or savagery
