- "They were a circus of twisted DNA. The Arn had not missed a trick. [...] The Gorks, only three feet tall but twenty feet across, shuffling, twelve-legged horrors with snapping, extending mouths on all sides. [...] It was a sad, sick collection. In a better world, a world of peace and justice, someone would have punished the Arn for what they had done. Twisting life to make monsters is an evil thing to do. But their evil served our purpose. We had an army."
Gorks were creatures from the Hork-Bajir homeworld that are one of several monsters created by the Arn to keep any wandering Hork-Bajir away. They are three feet tall but twenty feet across, with twelve legs and have extendable, snapping mouths on all sides of their bodies. The Gorks were commanded by Dak Hamee and Aldrea-Iskillion-Falan during a raid against a Yeerk base on the planet, although they were eventually killed by the Yeerks.
