Mordirith is a character created specifically for The Lord of the Rings Online. He is the main antagonist of Shadows of Angmar, the first release and first Epic Volume of the game. He was the Wraith steward of Carn Dûm.
The Witch-king's Steward, Mordirith, was once his greatest foe: Eärnur, King of Gondor. Eärnur was twice challenged by the Witch-king, and the second time he could not refuse. He rode into Minas Morgul and was never seen alive again. Mordirith later appeared in Angmar to rule in the Witch-king's stead, but few knew his true identity. Under Mordirith's rule, Orcs and evil Men multiplied in the remnants of the realm so that by the time of the War of the Ring Angmar posed a threat to the diminished peoples of Eriador.
