Sauron the Necromancer
Sauron is a character from the film trilogy The Hobbit” by Peter Jackson. But before that, he is mainly the “supreme” villain of the trilogy “The Lord Of The Rings” by J.R.R Tolkien, and of the films of Peter Jackson which are the adaptation. In the “The Hobbit” films, Sauron’s presence is secondary and will of course take all its importance in “The Lord Of The Rings”. At the beginning, Sauron is a Valar blacksmith, a kind of angel or deity of Middle Earth, who was corrupted by Morgoth. He then decided to create the rings of power: 9 for men, 7 for dwarves, 3 for elves and a unique ring that would allow him to obtain the ultimate power. But after a long war, Isildur, Aragorn’s ancestor, managed to take his ring and Sauron lost a large part of his power, becoming a kind of spirit without a body. He then takes refuge in the abandoned fortress of Dol-Guldur and becomes the Necromancer. In “The Hobbit”, when a suspicious and unhealthy activity is felt in the forest surrounding Dol-Guldur, Gandalf abandons the dwarves for a while and decides to go and investigate. This is how he discovers that the famous Necromancer was in fact Sauron and that he begins to regain power with the help of his Nazg?ls, the 9 human kings that he corrupted with his rings.
