An orc, addressed as Snaga, was part of the garrison of the Tower of Cirith Ungol. He was one of the few survivors of the Battle of Cirith Ungol on March 14, T.A. 3019. Snaga first comes into the story when he encounters what he thinks is the "Great Elf-warrior" on the stairs. He flees. Snaga was then ordered by Shagrat to send word to Sauron that they captured a Halfling. Snaga refused, and after a short chase, makes his way to the top of the tower. There, he lashed the prisoner, Frodo Baggins, with a whip. He was quickly overcome by Samwise Gamgee, and fell through the trap door to his death.[1]
