Wolf-men of Middle Earth

Posted by Keith Cross on Oct 18, 2007  | Comments

Wolf-men of Middle Earth -

The Lord of the Rings Online official site has been updated with another look at some of the foes that populate Middle Earth. This time around it's the Gauredain, the Wolf-men.

Wild men have dwelt in the North of Middle-earth since the Elder Days, troubling even the ancestors of the Dúnedain in times long forgotten. When Elendil and his sons came to Eriador after the fall of Númenor, they found these lands occupied by these Men of Darkness, and warred with them when they founded their kingdom of Arnor upon the shores of Lake Evendim.

The wild men withdrew from the might of Arnor, but they were not vanquished. In time, they came back to power: the Hill-men wrested control of the kingdom of Rhudaur, while in the west, in lands emptied by the abandonment of Annúminas, another clan took control. These were the Gauredain, the Wolf-men, and they remain blood enemies of the Dúnedain to this day.

The Gauredain, followers of the Witch-king of Angmar during his war against Arnor, have an ancient affinity for the Wolves of the North. They emulate these vicious beasts, wearing wolf-hides and going about on all fours when entering battle. These savage men use their fearsome behavior to terrify their prey, though even more terrifying is the rumor that they eat flesh . . . any flesh.
