This work was made for my master thesis which was about the history of monsters in the western society and it's evolution in our current days, in videogames, cinema, arts in general and in literature.
Being World of Warcraft so rich in mythology, I decided to do a research based on Orcs and Cyclops- two kinds of characters that this game has.
Also, the appearence of the characters, aren't really just based on mythology. They're also based in real life defects, like deseases, and malformations. For instance, the fierce appearance of the orcs are based in a condition called prognatism and the magnaron, gronn, ogron and ogre are based on a severe malfuction of featuses called cyclopia.
