Just as promised, have a few orc ladies! I’m sorry for the semi-shitty quality, my scanner wasn’t very cooperative today.
1- A midwife and her two younger apprentices. Female orc society is divided in castes by profession, and midwives are among the most powerful. They are vital to the community, but their role is not merely practical. They are believed to be the living symbol of the alliance between she-orcs and Melkor (see my post about gender roles in orc society), and thus having both great political and religious power (orc religion is centered on the Cult of Creation, so you can step to your own conclusion about why they are considered to be so important).
2- A merchant. She-orcs are in charge of economy and trade, so, after Angband stipulated his allegiance with various tribes of Men, caravans started traveling through secret trade routes towards the East and South. Although orcs learned quickly to produce artifacts similar in taste to the ones Men liked, they preserved their own traditional style, both in art, craft and fashion. Orcs are very secretive and proud about their art, thus many other cultures started believing (also due to elvish propaganda) that they are barbaric and uncivilized.
3- Older orc matriarch. Contrary to male orcs, who usually don’t reach an old age, females, due to the fact that they usually don’t participate in warfare and thus are less exposed to risks, have a much longer lifespan. Orcs have also the lowest percentage of deaths by childbirth among all the races of Arda, as a result of Melkor’s genetic manipulation during their creation.
Also, a few words about orc fashion: I think that in Angband it must get quite cold, so my designs of their dresses and jewelry are inspired to (but I tried to avoid any direct copy-paste design, because I live in terror of offending someone) cultures who live in (what I think are) similar climatic situations, such as Mongolian, Tibetan and Inuit culture. (Also, I’m crazy in love with those cultures, so, um, I just wanted to pay them a little tribute. Ughhh I love foreign cultures.)
