Carc was one of the ravens who lived on Ravenhill, one of the foothills of Erebor, the Lonely Mountain. Carc seems to have been the chief of those birds, and dwelt with his wife above the Dwarves' guard-chamber on the hill. Thorin recalled him as being wise and famous at the time the Dwarves were driven out of Erebor by Smaug. When Thorin returned to the Lonely Mountain 171 years later, Carc was dead, but the ravens remained, led by his son Roäc.[1]

Etymology[edit]

Carc is likely an onomatopoeic name.[2]
