Orcs (S. Yrch) are sometimes referred to the Glamhoth (S. "host of tumult") by the Elves.

Little is known for certain of the beginnings of the Orcs, the footsoldiers of the Enemy. It is said that they are in origin corrupted Elves captured by Melkor before the beginning of the First Age.

In appearance, Orcs are squat, swarthy creatures. Most of them prefer the darkness, being blinded by the light of the sun, but the kinds bred later in the Third Age such as the Uruk-hai can endure the daylight.

Goblins is a name for especially the smaller kinds, that infested the Misty and the Grey Mountains in the later Third Age, and had their capital at Mount Gundabad.
