What does ORC mean?

Orc
Our present-day conception of an orc or ork is one of a race of mythical humanoid creatures, generally described as brutish, aggressive and repulsive, stemming from the writings of J. R. R. Tolkien, where orcs contrast with the benevolent Elvish race. Tolkien developed his idea of the orc from the Old English term orc. In popular culture, they are variously portrayed. Orc facial features tend toward the grotesque, and their skin typically varies from black to grey to green. It may be physically stronger or weaker than humans, but always high in numbers. They often ride boars, wolves, and wargs. In many role-playing and computer games, orcs have green or greenish skin.
