He betrayed Sauron on at least one occasion: the Isengard Orcs seized Merry and Pippin and took them away north, defying the Mordor Orcs. ... Gandalf speculated that Saruman was ensnared when he used the Palantir to explore Mordor and perhaps observe Sauron in the Barad-dur. But Gandalf is only a character in the story. Read more
They're actually were orcs who fought against sauron. only the elves were unbroken in their allegiance all other races including humans dwarves and orcs all had people on both sides of the war. Works have a natural tendency to towards evil, and this makes them far more vulnerable to sauron's influence than other races.
Orcs don't exactly seem to respect weakness, and given Sauron used them as the vast, vast bulk of his army, it's not like he was a world ending threat at the time without them.
No, it would never have betrayed him. Sauron had put a great deal of his power into the One Ring, so it was literally a part of him. When the ring betrayed its other bearers, it was always trying to get back to Sauron so his power would be complete.
While the orc army was being bred, Sauron set out to corrupt the hearts and minds of the races of Middle-Earth. He forged the Rings of Power, and ensnared the Nine kings of Men to his cause. The Elves, however, rejected his gifts, which brought Sauron into open war with them.
The reason Sauron needed the Ring was because it was the only route by which his enemies could stop him. If the Ring was claimed and used, or (though he did not even imagine it) destroyed, Sauron would lose and be destroyed.
Orcs eat meat, including the flesh of Men, and may indulge in cannibalism: in The Two Towers, Grishnákh, an Orc from Mordor, claims that the Isengard Orcs eat orc-flesh.
2 Answers. Gandalf did not know then that it was the One Ring. He simply suspected it. He realised Smeagol had called it that in the past and understood then there was an even deeper magical power behind this than he realised.
The ring had the power to corrupt a person. So taking the ring to the mountain was itself a very hard task to achieve. While fighting over the ring, Frodo was the one who stepped forward to volunteer in carrying the ring to the mountain where it was forged. Everybody then decided to let him carry the ring.
Sméagol obtained the Ring by murdering his relative Déagol, who found it in the River Anduin. Gollum referred to the Ring as "my precious" or "precious", and it extended his life far beyond natural limits.
They could be slain, and they were subject to disease; but apart from these ills they died and were not immortal, even according to the manner of the Quendi; indeed they appear to have been by nature short-lived compared with the span of Men of higher race, such as the Edain.
Originally Answered: In the Lord Of The Rings, what happened to the Orcs after the fall of Sauron? They were all killed. They either killed themselves, or fled far away and the Ents etc. killed them, while the remaining few were eventually hunted down.
Originally Answered: Is Sauron an elf? No Sauron is not an elf, elves are the firstborn children of iluvatar but Sauron is a maia an angelic being that has existed before the universe was even created. He's a divine spirit that existed long before the creation of Eä but turned to evil when Morgoth corrupted him.
Thranduil was one of the Iathrim who spent his early life in Doriath. ... The Elves of Mirkwood joined the Last Alliance and in S.A. 3434, Thranduil followed his father and numerous lightly armed Elves in the War of the Last Alliance.
During the Battle of the Last Alliance, Isildur cut the Ring from Sauron's hand, which defeated Sauron's physical body.
At the time of the War of the Last Alliance, Gandalf and his fellow wizards were in Aman (aka The Undying Lands), serving their Vala lords/ladies or doing whatever else they were doing. Gandalf's name in Aman was Olorin, and he was notable for his wisdom and humility.
Hobbits are more immune to, or more resistant to, the temptations and effects of the One Ring than any other species in Middle-earth. There are several explicit reasons for this, and, perhaps, one reason deeper than all the others.
I see Legolas being more like Boromir in using the ring against the evil, until he is ultimately corrupted. Frodo was not weak. His weakness sprouted from the effect that the ring was having on his spirit and mind, and he had the strength to carry this very ring thousands of miles all the way to Mt. Doom.
Tom Bombadil therefore is not affected by the Ring because he does not care for such things. He is, or contains within himself, the substance of creation. ... The ring has no effect on him because the ring has nothing to offer him; time is already immortal, and neither good nor evil.
For Gandalf, his main powers seem to be those over light and illumination. ... Even if Gandalf had more traditional fantasy powers, he would not be able to constantly cast spells. As shown with Saruman, using magic is very taxing and expends great energy, so it cannot be done freely.
Why does the One Ring make you invisible? ... The Ring itself doesn't just make its bearers invisible – it brings them halfway into the world of wraiths and spirits. The ring bearers had no power over the ring (like Sauron had) and therefore they could not make themselves visible whilst wearing it.
Gollum's cave was the dwelling place of Gollum, otherwise known as Sméagol, from TA 2470 onwards. It was where Bilbo Baggins found the One Ring by chance, which Gollum owned, and took it.
Orcs eat all manner of flesh, including men and horses, and there are frequent hints of cannibalism among Orcs. Grishnákh, leader of the Mordor Orcs, accuses Saruman's Uruks of eating Orc-flesh, which they angrily deny.
The Uruk-hai of Isengard tell the other Orcs that Saruman gives them “mans-flesh”; Grishnakh, an Orc from Mordor, challenges Ugluk of Isengard by telling the other Orcs the Uruk-hai probably just eat Orc-flesh.
Orc Draught is an invigorating drink used by Orcs, which inflicts damage when drunk but restores some hunger and grants speed and strength buffs. It is essentially Sauron's imitation of elven Miruvor.
