Tuigan, Thay, Anauroch and other evil imperialistic human nations do not exist in the Forgotten Realms setting. The Many-Arrows also did not exist in the setting. Understandable.

Maybe it's worth remembering about Corellon?
An infamous petty and emotional god whose spontaneous outbursts took a toll on elves, who cheated Gruumsh and the orcs out of a homeland causing orcs and Gruumsh to become the chaotic evil murderers they are known as today.
By the way, he cursed all the elves who did not side with him during his battle with Lolth, essentially giving her the advantage of embittered and loyal followers. He also refuses to create new elven souls, essentially dooming the race to extinction. Oh, and one more thing, killing orcs is one of Corellon's dogmas. It's about provocation.
In addition, orcs, humans, elves, goblins and others have been killing each other for thousands of years without any provocation, so it's not very smart to single out someone from the general bloodthirsty mass.
