Melkor Bauglir, also known as Morgoth, is the primary antagonist in The Silmarillion. He was mentioned in The Lord of the Rings, and was also mentioned in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
He was the first Dark Lord of Middle-earth, and the master of Sauron. He is argubly the true main antagonist of Middle-earth, because it was his action that led Sauron to follow his footsteps into evil and became a pyrotic demon.
Melkor, when he first came to Earth, took the form of a pale-white humanoid deity, filled with flames. As time went on, he became manifest as the Dark Lord where his shape-shifting abilities were stripped from him from all the evil he was committing. As the Dark Lord, he was superhumanly tall, and covered in dark storm clouds and a dark, powerful aura, which humbled all who saw him. He also wore an iron crown at all times, as his means of identifying him as the kingship of the world, and he placed the Silmarils in his crown when he had stolen them.
The Silmarillion Edit
Melkor was once one of the Valar, and was the mightiest and wisest of them all. However, because of his hatred, envy, and malice, he fell into darkness, and became their greatest enemy. Ever since, he tried to do everything he can to ruin the universe, including Arda, as much as he can.
More coming soon!
- He will return in Dagor Dagorath to destroy all good in Middle-earth, but will fail.
- Melkor is inspired by the Devil himself, as J.R.R. Tolkien made Melkor resemble him.
