It is not entirely clear where the orcs came from. Tolkien did not have time to paint their chronicle. One of the most common theories of the origin of the orcs says that they were born by Morgoth, by perverting and torturing the elves, and later from people, since the first records of their existence date back to events before the appearance of the first people. Subsequently, as studies of Tolkien's work indicate, the author thought about abandoning the idea of ​​the elven origin of the orcs in favor of corrupt people.
