Karsh, originally born as Carthean, is a hero of the Angmar faction. Karsh was invented by Electronic Arts for The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth series, where he is voiced by Jason Connery.

History

Carthean was a celebrated Arnorian general. He defended Cardolan, where the burial grounds of the deceased kings of Arnor lay, from the Witch-king and his servants. He failed, and at the end, Morgomir turned him into the wraith Karsh. Since then, Karsh is devoted to the Iron Crown of Angmar.
