History: during his mortal life, Orcus was a merciless Taymora warleader who lived in the region later to be known as Traladara. His hatred towards all the living beings and his thirst for blood caught Thanatos’s attention and soon he led Orcus on the path of immortality, turning him into the first devil swine of Mystara. Orcus became a legendary figure after his ascension in XVIII century BC and his deeds were later incorporated into the Traladaran legends as the perfect sample of cruelty and horror. Orcus’s cult became then widespread among the evil shapeshifters and he became known among the Thyatians when they made contact with the Traladarans.

Personality: Orcus’s main goal is to destroy everything associated with beauty and life. He is obsessed with spreading terror and mass destruction in the cruellest way possible, and for this reason he’s in race against Alphaks for the crown of King of Destruction. Despite the fact he’s always portrayed in bestial forms, he is cynical and merciless, the flawless sample of the cold logic of evil. Among his interests lies the patronage of undead, a field where he competes with Nyx and Demogorgon to win away from them more followers. Being a patron of lycanthropes, Orcus is also sworn enemy of Ruaidhri Hawkbane and Saimpt Malinois.
