As a result of the Warlock War between the T.C.A. and the Outlands there is an unprecidented number of orphans in the T.C.A. at the moment. As such they've begun to be looked down upon and even consided by some to be a public blight. Many of the children in NS have picked up on this from their parents and as such oprhans, or "Warphans" as they are often mockingly called, are frequently bullied and made fun of by other students.
