After this event, he returned home and understood he was invisible. He kept his treasure a secret and used it in malicious ways, to see and hear secrets and hurtful things. and was corrupted further by the ring. Soon he became unpopular and his peers avoided him; they often cursed and kicked him, and he bit their feet.

Indeed, by night he climbed up the highlands, and wormed into the little cave out of which the stream flowed.<Ref name=shadow/>
