When it comes to the Lord of the Rings, Gandalf is often a fan-favorite character in the movies and books. The wizard has become a reference in role-playing games and stories inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s work. Powerful, funny, and wise, Gandalf shows throughout the narrative that he is not perfect. In the movies, the character was played by Sir Ian McKellan, who eternalized the gray (and white) wizard for good.
The Uruk-hai were a line of orcs created by Saruman in the Third Age in Mordor. According to Gandalf were supposedly a cross between humans and goblins. The Uruk-hai first appeared in 2475 when they invaded Ithilien and took Osgiliath.
Unlike the other orcs, they were almost as tall as men, had long straight legs, and did not weaken in sunlight. They were black and possessed clenched eyes. By their obvious advantages, the Uruks considered themselves superior to other orcs.
They were once Elves, mutilated and tortured by the Lords of Darkness. Slaves to Sauron’s will. Uruk-Hai were extremely cruel and savage. They were relentless, and hatred was their only feeling. They had no emotions at all. They did not fear death and thought only of killing.
