The Orgoks are a warlike – some would even say barbaric – people. They are natural warriors and seem to excel at melee, ranged, and vehicle-based combat, though they show some preference melee, as it allows them to see the terror in their enemies eyes moments before they are slain. As such, it is almost unheard of for an Orgok to not have some manner of slashing, bashing, or stabbing weapon with it at all times.

Organization & Culture
Originating from the Gruumok system, the Orgoks once had an empire which encompassed nearly 2 dozen systems; however, internal struggles and invasion by various external factions eventually destroyed all that they had fought to obtain. Shortly afterward, a plague which preyed on their unique physiology ravaged their race, killing an estimated 60% of all Orgoks. While no one took credit for the plague, it is believed that it was a form of viral warfare employed by one of the Orgok’s many enemies. Hated by most of the galactic races which they had come into contact with, they were soon attacked on all fronts, their homeworld captured, and their people scattered throughout the stars. Many races passed laws allowing the slaying of Orgoks on sight, and other still offered rewards for the heads of dead Orgoks. While such genocidal fervor has since died down, a general hatred of the Orgoks remains, and most governments keep an eye out for any attempts by the Orgoks to reunite the shattered remnants of their civilization.

Most Orgoks are content to be hated by everyone else, as they are not very social creatures. They have tended to find their ways to developing systems with little established government where they can live the lives of bandits, guns for hire, or scavengers. Some have found places within the militaries of the less hostile races, and there are unsubstantiated rumors of a reunification movement taking form.
