Half-orcs in Eberron
Half-orcs are less common then their elven counterparts, but still a powerful influence on Khorvaire. The savage orc tribes of the Shadow Marches loathe half-orcs, finding them revolting and aberrant. The orc clans, however, have a much better relationship with humans, and cherish the half-orcs, who are called "Jhorgun'taal", or "child of two bloods" in Orcish. Half-orcs of the clans often strive to bridge the gap between humans and orcs, and view the two races as having common ancestry.

House Tharashk bears the Mark of Finding, which allows them to track down creatures and objects alike. Their most profitable ventures include divining for gold and dragonshards in the Shadow Marches, but they are most famously known for their bounty hunters.
