Can someone help me identify this greatsword style?

I am trying to find a style for my friend's greatsword.
I do not have pictures right now, but I will post them soon in an edit to this post.
For now, the parameters of this style are as follows:
This style CAN be found as a set-less drop item, which leads me to believe it is a base racial style.
He says it may drop in Rivenspire, and some might adorn the walls of a certain vampire/gargoyle boss.
This greatsword has a face engraved in the hilt.
It looks incredibly similar to Orc style, but it is NOT orc. It's blade and hilt are shaped the same as the oricalcum orc greatsword minus the face engraving.

My question is this: is this a craftable style I can find, or is this some kind of slight modification of orc style that can only be found as a drop?

    Does it say that it's a "unique item" in the item tooltip? I can't find it on ESO Fashion or ESO-styles either

    It's ORC style, using higher level mats.

    It certainly does have the same general shape as the Orc greatsword :

    But the one he shows has a more intricate design, it might be a quest reward or a unique weapon that drops from bosses or something.

    He says it's not part of any particular set, that it's not unique, and he has one on his EU vet rank EP, NA Lvl 26 EP, and NA lvl 8 DC characters, all obtained during different patches, and in different areas. For instance his level 8 version was dropped in Bangkorai, killing random mobs around the vampire shrine area.
    I'm thinking this must be some kind of unique orc sword, but damned if I've ever got one myself that I can remember.
    The part that's bugging me tho is that all 3 of these swords he's got share the same appearance, despite their vastly different material brackets.
    Still, I appreciate all your help so far, and I hope that this mystery can at least be partially solved.

    It's Orc style.
    All of the base 10 racial styles have a 5th variant weapon (and shield) like this that has never been added to the crafting system for some reason, but can occasionally be found as stealable items throughout the world.
    So this is the 5th Orcish style for greatswords.

    I really never understood why they didn't add these styles, they look great. Ever since release, style progression for the base styles stops at level 36. It's really disappointing.
    Although some of the 5th Nord variants have been added for the Draugr style set, like the staff.

    This is a really old overview, but since the styles we are talking about have been with us since release it doesn't matter:
