Tharzog is a character in The Lord of the Rings: War in the North and the first boss of that game. He was the chieftain of the Orcs of Mount Gram.[1]


[edit] History

Tharzog was an Orc chieftain from Mount Gram that came to serve Agandaûr. In Fornost, Tharzog commanded the assembled host of Orcs and Goblins, preparing for Agandaûr's conquest of the North of Middle-earth. [2] When Eradan, Andriel, Farin, Elladan and Elrohir infiltrated Fornost, Tharzog told Agandaûr that there were intruders and that Beleram - a captured Eagle - had been freed. Mocked for his troops' poor ability to stop the enemy, Tharzog sent his lieutenants to call the guard. He noticed the intruders trying to sneak into the Citadel tower, after which he ordered the closing the gate to the top of the tower. This separated Eradan, Andriel and Farin from Elladan and Elrohir. The latter confronted Agandaûr, while Tharzog and his guard fought the former. Despite his brute strength, Tharzog was slain and his guard was slaughtered.[1]

[edit] Personality

Like many other Orcs and Goblins residing in Fornost, Tharzog was very fearful of Agandaûr, shown by how uncomfortable he felt in the latter's presence and how he genuinely studdered when reporting the presence of intruders. He was both very strong and quick, and was therefore the most feared - with the sole exception of Agandaûr - of all the fell creatures in Fornost.[2]
