As the old tales are told, The Nazgul were once human men who were given nine rings of power; which made them great kings and attained near-immortality as wraiths, unfortunetly they became servants of the dark lord, Sauron; bound to the power of the One Ring. The Nazgûl are Sauron's "most terrible servants".
They venture on horseback, or even take flight on their fell beasts, on certain agendas; even joining in with the wizard, Saruman.
- The Witch King of Angmar is the first and greatest of the nine; and the leader. Hence the name; "The Lord of The Nazgul".
- The names of the other eight are in the following. Khamul the Easterling, Adunaphael the Quiet, Akhorahil, Dwaw of Waw, Hoarmnrath of Dir, Indur Dawndeath, Ren the Unclean, Uvatha the Horseman.
- The Nazgul are confirmed to be in two original stories, Dark of Shadow, and Dangerous Game.
