Nazgûl

Nazgul, seen riding on their black horses.

The 
Nazgûl (from Black Speech nazg, "ring", and gûl, "wraith, spirit" (presumably related to gul, "sorcery"); also called Ringwraiths, the Nine Riders, or simply the Nine are evil supernatural beings of Middle-Earth.



Background

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.
