Agandaûr is one of the main characters and atagonist of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. He is a descendant of the Black Númenóreans and Sauron's most cruel servant.[1] He was both a mighty sorcerer and warior, being able to fight Elladan and Elrohir at the same time.[2]



Early Life

Agandaûr's bith date, aswell as most of his personal details, is unknown. He must have started serve Sauron somewhere in the Third Age. Agandaûr became a great warior and sorcerer, likely being taught by Sauron himself.[2]

War of the Ring

At the same time that the Nazgûl were sent to retrieve the One Ring, Agandaûr was sent north to conquer Eriador and destroy Rivendell.[3] He assembled an army in Fornost of Orcs of the Misty Mountains.[4] In Fornost he toke Tharzog, chieftain of the Orcs of Mount Gram, in his service.[1]

Just shortly after the Nazgûl defeated the Rangers at Sarn's Ford, Agandaûr met there with the Witch-king. Telling him he finished the preparations and was ready to attack, as assistance in the Hunt of the Ring. The Witch-king ordered him to return and attack immediately.[4]
