Armies of them can be amassed in weeks and they grow in martial prowess in even less time. Though Uruk-Hai are birthed at adulthood they can continue to live for 40 to 50 years. Throughout their life they age very little. They are brutal and savage creatures who kill anyone in their way. They are always Chaotic and normally fall towards the Evil alignment though that is not always true.
