I recently had an interesting discussion with Kern of Springdale University regarding those of the sorcery profession. As you may know he is something of an expert in this field.
He told me that his latest research had failed to confirm the commonly held belief in a genetic link between sorcerers and orcs. Apparently this remains unproven, despite obvious similarities in smell and reputably small reproductive organs of both.
He did have one significant finding. A large majority of sorcerers interviewed reported that a big boy had hurt them in the playground when they were at school. He believes this may be a relevant factor in their subsequent perversions.
Of the minority who did not have an abusive background he feels most are in merely in denial although a few simply stared blankly when questioned about their education as if the concept was unfamiliar to them.
