Lughorn was a Black Uruk who served in Mordor's army during the War of the Ring. He was part of a two-orc scout-troop , hunting the southwestern Morgai for suspected spies of Gondor who had infiltrated Torech Ungol and seriously wounded the half-demon Shelob.While on Patrol he had a violent dispute with his comrade, the lesser Orc Tracker Nog , which resulted in Lughorn being shot in the Eye and supposedly killed by his inferior Nog.


  • broad-bladed spear
  • orc helm
  • short bow


In the Book The Lord of the Rings neither Nog nor his comrade Lughorn are named but only appear as nameless antagonists of the subplot. Lughorn though was at one stage of the script a suggested name for one of the Orcs of the Tower of Cirith Ungol.


  • In Sauron Defeated, Lughorn was a earlier name of the character Lagduf.
