"Pinkskin" is a derogatory term for non-orcs by those of orc blood. The colloquialism refers to the fact that humans and other demi-humans have a pinkish hue to their skin, rather than the green or grey tones of orc-kind. While the term generally refers to humans and elves, in places where half-orcs are looked down upon by full-blooded orcs, they can be grouped into this term as well. Pinkskin is also the name of the human district of the Varisian orc settlement, Urglin.1
