Orcs are not given names at birth.
They must grow and become big and strong.
They earn a name in battle.
All Orcs earn their name in battle.
It's a simple Orc fact.
Until that name is earned, they are all runts.
This story follows one runt who was cursed in his crib to never age past puberty. Being small and "weak", he's never allowed to fight in glorious battle and earn himself a name.
An outcast, he leaves home with the only name he knows: Runt.
