Miserable tools and slaves of these two, the Black Orcs loathe themselves and their masters, as they hate all the free peoples of Middle-earth.Their origins are shrouded in the distant past, but it is supposed that early in the first age, Morgoth captured members of the Avari, Elves of the East, distorting their bodies and corrupting them beyond recognition with his evil sorcery. This act morphed the once graceful Elves into hideous hunched forms, and these foul, black-blooded creatures were driven by fear and hate to destroy all fair things for their cruel master.When Morgoth was overcome, his servant Sauron eventually came to power and a great number of Morgoth's orcs came to serve him in Mordor. There, with the power of the One Ring and his Black Orcs, Sauron built the stronghold Barad-Dur. Though Sauron was first defeated by the alliance of Men and Elves in the second age, he would rise again as would his Black Orcs to menace Middle-earth in the third age's War of the Ring.
