What role did he play?
X was from Dragonstone, the westernmost outpost of the
Valyrian Freehold, which his family had settled over a century
before the Doom of Valyria. According to family tradition, X
married within the family; however, instead of just one sister, he
married both his elder sister, Y, and his younger sister, Z.

planned his conquest of the Seven Kingdoms. He made a huge

X is called by the Elves "Oldest and Fatherless“ and resides East of The Shire
at the edge of the Old Forest, close to the Barrow Downs. He set himself
boundaries, but boundaries within which his power was extraordinary. X
was a creature of contradictions, one moment defeating ancient forces with

than a hat, he wore a crown of autumn leaves, perhaps revealing something
of the elemental powers he possessed,
But behind X's simple façade there are hints of great knowledge - he can see
the Ring-bearer when invisible and is unaffected by wearing the Ring
himself. Gandalf later says that this is because the Ring has no power over

that he was the inspiration behind the character X when he
was told by his students: "The first I knew was when a
someone knocked on the door and said: 'You're X aren't
you'. I suppose I was quite strict as a teacher, but I said to
my wife: 'They think I'm X.' She said: 'Of course you are –
