Myths can be chaotic in nature, can't they? Ogres worship cacodemon, a chaotic entity, any of their myths will have Chaos in it, so that's not something you can use to decide whether cannibalism is chaotic - they are chaotic themselves.
Now on Orlanthi myths. I can't think of one, but we don't know all of their myths and since I like the idea I can invent one myself :D.

There's an orlanthi myth explaining why raping is chaotic, we all agree on that. And no, I don't think raping is always chaotic, IMG raping is "just" an evil act to a malkioni, not chaotic, because they don't have any myths related to it. Thed isn't there.
