Biography

Orok was the man who wielded authority over Lelcar's western bank when it became divided between factions during the Sun Rune War. As a person, Orok manifested a certain air of haughtiness but he also cared deeply for Lelcar and truly believed in the Godwin Faction's beliefs. Personality wise, he could be said to be almost the direct opposite of Volga, with the two often colliding.

During the Sun Rune War, when De Beers abandoned Lelcar, Orok would rent out his mansion as his base of operations and hired Nikea to be a bodyguard. Orok instituted a rough system of conscription in the western bank part of the town. Although this seemed heartless, this was put in place to ensure that the Godwins would not interfere in the town directly. However, when he witnessed the Godwin brutality in Lelcar first-hand, he would set aside his differences with Volga and Wasil and join the Imperial City Recapture Army.

As a member of the army, he stated he still believed in the policies of the Godwins but that their hypocrisy and cruelty could not be tolerated. He tried to get Alhazred to take away De Beers' books in the mansion to no avail and was surprised that the army recruited Nikea as a bodyguard after she was defeated by the army herself.

Following the Sun Rune War, Orok would dedicate himself to the rebuilding of Lelcar but would disappear mysteriously just before the completion of his works.
