The Istari (known as Wizards in Middle-earth) were an order of 5 Maiar spirits sent to Middle-earth by the Valar to aid the free-peoples of Middle-earth in defeating the legendary Dark Lord, Sauron. They were Saruman, Gandalf, Radagast, and Morinehtar & Rómestámo.

Members of the Order

  • Saruman (White wizard, later of Many Colors after Sauron's corruption)
  • Gandalf (Gray, later a White wizard after slaying Durin's Bane)
  • Radagast (Brown wizard)
  • Morinehtar (Blue wizard)
  • Rómestámo (Blue wizard)


Departure from Valinor

Coming soon!

Saruman's Corruption

Coming soon!

Fourth Age

After the Third Age, Sauron was finally defeated, and the Istari's work were apparently done. Gandalf returned to Valinor. Saruman attempted to come back, but was blown away by a great wind, never to return. Radagast stayed in Middle-earth to tend to the wilderness, at least until possibly TA 3018. The fate of Morinehtar & Rómestámo remains unknown.


  • In Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, Saruman does not become a Wizard of Many Colors; rather, he remains a White Wizard after Sauron's corruption.
