Master

Master was a title used for many people, the most prominent being Tom Bombadil, whose jolly and riddling songs gave him mastery over all things in his domain[1], and the two Dark Lords, whose overwhelming malign sway over fell powers made them overlords over a myriad of willing or unwitting thralls.

Other characters who have also been honoured with this title include:
