Alpha Orog (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Orogs looked similar to regular mountain orcs, with large necks, tusks and snouts. However, orogs were slightly taller than other orc subraces, with larger ears and huge pale eyes. Female orogs tended to be smaller than their male counterparts. Alpha's are larger still then their other orog counterparts. These Alpha's were imprisioned behind "THE WALL" to keep them from destroying the whole of the Underdark.
In the Underdark there is a well fortified city known for its impregnable wall. This wall was dubbed The Wall and for thousands of years this wall has imprisoned a particularly large breed of orc, the Alpha Orog.
Similar to other Orcs the Alpha Orogs are war like and rowdy.
