These are the basic infantry of the darkspawn horde. Genlocks often accompany hurlocks in battle as archers. Genlocks are born from broodmothers that were once female dwarves. Since the dwarves regularly fight darkspawn, this would explain why genlocks are the most common type of darkspawn.  See: Dragon Age: Origins
