365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 221: the Olog-hai

The Olog-hai (Black Speech: ‘troll-race’ or ‘troll people’) were a race of trolls that inhabited southern Mirkwood and northern Mordor. They had been bred by Sauron near the end of the Third Age and were, unlike other trolls, cunning and able to endure the sun. The differences between the Olog-hai and other Trolls often led their enemies to erroneously assume that they were simply large Orcs. They were likely destroyed after Sauron was overthrown at the end of the Third Age.
