Kaivek Orcs are split into two races: Ren'Kai and Vek.[1]

The Kaivek have always adhered to a strict code of tribal loyalty... Roughly thirteen centuries [before the fall], a leader named Ran'Kal united the clans into a nation called the Kaivek Protectorate. Kal taught that all Orcs answer to the protection of the divine order. This teaching expressed the belief that it was the will of the gods that all Orc kind should have superiority over the nations of Verra. For it was only through the unity of the clans that the people of Verra would be lead to enlightenment. It was the teachings of Kal that lead the Kaivek to pursue campaigns of conquest across the lands of Verra. Where the Orcs were once nomadic and divided before Kal, through his leadership they became a powerful nation united in conquest. Trophies of each city conquered is found in the capital city of Ren. [Just before the fall] the Kaivek Protectorate have adopted a policy of peaceful coexistence with their neighbors. Having endured centuries of conflict, leaders rose among them echoing the teachings of peace. These recent reformations have once again begun to lead to a fracturing of the Protectorate. Some unrest among the clans have called for a culling of those who are unworthy of the protection from the divine order.[2]Steven Sharif

Ren'Kai

Ren'Kai updated character concept art by Emanuel Gonzalez.[3]

I like the influence, almost what appears to be somewhat scaly on the arms and the back and the skin: A little bit- I mean it looks like he may have some type of influences of Dragonborn in his lineage or something?[4]Steven Sharif

Ren'Kai architecture concept art.[5]

Part of the biome that the Ren'Kai are accustomed to is a more swamp or marsh oriented, so they have these almost stilt-like foundations on some of the assets because they're intended to sit above that marsh.[5]Steven Sharif

Honor. Power. Tranquility. Through staying centered their power only grows. The Ren'Kai believe in ultimate focus and controlling their immense power. When a Ren'Kai becomes enraged though, there aren't many men or beasts who can live and tell the tale.

The developers have alluded to Ren'Kai or their parent race, the Kaivek, possibly having a Dragonborn lineage.[4]

Vek

They're a very suspicious culture. The division between the Ren'Kai and the Vek was not a very happy and peaceful one.[9]Steven Sharif

VekAlpha.png Vek (pronounced Veck[6][7]) are a playable Kaivek Orc race in Ashes of Creation.[1]

Celestial. Purpose. Fate. When one stargazes they find beauty lies beyond our world, when The Vek stargaze they find fate lies beyond our time. Star maps, numerology and prophecy are integral parts of each Vek's life. Great leaders read the heavens for how wars will go, which empires will rise and fall, and the Vek often ask themselves "are we too late?"

The Vek are astrologers.[11]

Orc appearance

Ren'Kai are large and 'buff' in appearance.[13][15]

Vek are "goblinesque" in appearance and have a somewhat "contorted" stature.[14][15]

Orders of the Seven

The orders of the seven are religious organizations corresponding to the seven grand temples of Verra.[18]

  1. The Order of hope is an Aelan human order based in the capital city of Aela. The patron deity is Resna.[18]
  2. The Order of fate is a Kaivek orc order headquartered in the capital city of Ren. Patron deity is Norlan.[19]
  3. The Order of truth is a Pyrian elven order headquartered in the capital city of Amera. Patron deity is Shol.[20]

Within the temples of the seven there exist different levels of organizations that call on only the most devout followers to serve. Depending on the follower's skills, services could mean many things. For those among the followers who hold a certain set of skills, there are the orders of the seven. Each of the orders answers to a different hierarchy within the various grand temples of the seven that are found throughout Verra.[18]Steven Sharif
