Admiral Orlock was Commander in Chief of the Helghan military, being the most trusted advisor of Autarch Visari and second in command of the Helghan Empire. Before and during his reign as the Helghast leader, he shares a bitter rivalrywith Chairman Stahl, who attempts to usurp rule of the Helghast. Orlock is an evolved Helghast judging from his shaved head and moustache. The Admiral is a devouted patriot and leader, appearing to be a close friend to Scolar Visari during his reign as Autarch. At the same time, he is a harsh, short-tempered, and potentially violent man who's irritability has only been heightened with the actions of Jorhan Stahl, an individual who keenly manipulates Orlock's anger to his own advantage.
