🧝♀️🧘♀️🧘♂️🧝♂️ 8. Sugar Cane Staffs for the strength of the Wizards 🧙♂️ I don't know if I love more elves or wizards!? Wisdom+magic? That's a hell of a combo! Today I choose to celebrate my two favourites ❤️ When I met the character of Radagast I knew he would be my favorite😊 Some facts about these two:
🧙♂️ Radagast was originally a Maia of Yavanna the Fruit-Giver named Aiwendil, meaning "bird-friend". In Valinor a council was called by Manwë, shortly after Sauron's defeat in the War of the Last Alliance. Though Sauron was overthrown, it would later turn out that he had not been effectively vanquished and his shadow began to fall upon Middle-earth a second time. It was decided to send five emissaries to Middle-earth. These should be "mighty peers of Sauron, yet forgo might, and clothe themselves in flesh," as they were intended to help Men and Elves unite against Sauron, but the wizards were forbidden from matching the Dark Lord in power and fear. The other four who were chosen were Gandalf, Saruman, Alatar and Pallando (the Blue Wizards).
🧙♂️ Despite his somewhat childish ways, Radagast is also shown to be adept at combat, being able to hold his own against the resurrected Witch-king of Angmar. He is also brave, and willing to help Gandalf any way he can, including rescuing him from Dol Guldur and even giving him his staff.
🧙♂️ We can see just how alluring the One Ring is in The Fellowship of the Ring when even Gandalf is tempted to take it for himself. Little does Frodo know that Gandalf already has one Ring of Power: Narya, the Ring of Fire. Unlike the simple gold band that the One Ring takes the form of, Narya is an elegant piece of jewellery with a ruby set in the center. It was one of the three rings made originally for the Elves, forged by the Nolodorin prince Celebrimbor in the Second Age. Narya is distinctive from the other rings that have largely corrupting influences as it inspires the courage to stand against evil in others, as well as shielding the wearer against the ravages of time.
