* PlayingWithFire: Aside from being able manipulate fire, he can also imbue living creatures with this power.
* SealedEvilInACan: Was buried beneath the site of Nargroth and unsealed in its excavation.



!!!Lhaereth the Stained
A plague-brewing being of ancient evil appearing akin to a Morroval. One of Sauron's oldest and most loyal servants.
* DragonAscendant: As an embodied evil spirit like Sauron, she served him longer than any of the other rulers of Gorgoroth, and commands many Uruks, infected Orcs, and Merrevail. [[spoiler: At the end of Volume 1, Book 4 she comes out on top as Sauron's successor.]]
* TheDreaded: She's known to have wiped out entire cities with her plagues, it's said no one comes back from her fortress, Seregost (without being horribly altered) and she rules over a festering, bloody swamp that in some ways is the most dangerous region of Gorgoroth. The Easterlings have an IronicNurseryTune about her, calling her Sweet Lara.
* HumbleGoal: Sauron promised to give her an heir once Middle-earth was under her control. [[ForegoneConclusion This never came to pass]].
* [[LastOfHisKind Last of Her Kind]]: Claims to be this, and continuing her kind is her main motivation for working for Sauron.
* MadScientist: Of the very evil variety. Those who enter Seregost are used as test subjects for her plagues and poisons. If they're lucky they die horribly from disease. [[ReforgedIntoAMinion If not...]]
* MonsterProgenitor: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. She rules over many Merrevail and appears similar to them, but claims to be the [[LastOfHisKind last of her kind]].
* [[PlagueMaster Plague Mistress]]: One of the greatest brewers of disease serving under Sauron, and responsible for the Great Plague which devastated much of Middle-earth and ended the Gondorian occupation of Mordor. [[spoiler: She's working on a second Great Plague that has no cure.]]
* UngratefulBastard: She experiments even on Easterlings who were loyal to Sauron.
* UnholyMatrimony: Agrees to marry Dulgabêth to reunite the splintered factions of Mordor. [[spoiler: It's a ruse to get her revenge on him.]]
* WeWillMeetAgain: [[VillainExitStageLeft Flies away]] after she is confronted in her keep and [[spoiler:her plague-cauldrons are destroyed]] but promises this in a rather ominous way.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Betrays, [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech angrily denounces]], captures and [[spoiler:breaks the mind of]] [[spoiler:Dulgabêth the Black Word]] for failing Sauron. [[spoiler:Gothmog]] is next on her list for the same crime.



!!!Borangos the Horror
A Great Rogmul discovered by Sauron's servants in Mordor long ago.
* EvilIsBurningHot: A demon similar to a Balrog, but lesser in power and with more emphasis on fire.
* ItAmusedMe: His reason for pledging loyalty to [[spoiler:Lhaereth the Stained]].
* KingMook: Regmyl are relatively lesser spirits, subservient to beings like Sauron and the Balrogs, but Borangos is perhaps the mightiest of their kind.
* TheMagnificent: "The [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Horror]]"
* PlayingWithFire: Aside from being able manipulate fire, he can also imbue living creatures with this power.
* SealedEvilInACan: Was buried beneath the site of Nargroth and unsealed in its excavation.

* TheExile: He was banished from the Riddermark for slandering Grima and questioning the ancient feud with the Dunlendings, leading him to be sent to Stangard.

However he soon decides to ignore this for the greater good, pointing out the latter banishment is the reason it's not ''his'' fault he's been forced to disobey Theoden's mandate to remain in Stangard.
