Agandaûr was one of Sauron's most trusted servants, working in collaboration with the Black Captains to serve the Dark Lord. Agandaûr was, like the Mouth of Sauron, a Black Númenórean. He is Sauron's lieutenant. He is ambitious and hungry for power, and when it comes, he takes it. He was sent to the north to organize an army and wipe out the Free Peoples on a different front. To many, he is a deadly creature. A shadow, spoken of in whispers and fear, even among the powerful. He is one of Sauron's cruelest underlings, and plays an important, yet still mysterious, role in the plans for bringing Middle-earth to its knees.
He was first seen at Sarn Ford, an encampment of the Dunedain Rangers. He arrived just after the Nazgûl had finished purging the rangers, and met with the Witch-King. He told him he had stirred the Orcs of the mountains, and was gathering his forces at old Fornost. Before leaving, he said that the northern lands had known peace for too long, and that they'd soon feel Sauron's wrath.
In Fornost, his Orc and goblin warriors were being cut down, and his war machines had been destroyed. In the city's citadel where he resided, he told his orc chief Tharzog to deal with the intruders that were causing so many problems. He was chased to the citadel's top by Elladan and Elrohir, the twin sons of Elrond, the Half-elven. He dueled the brothers and overpowered them, until their companions Andriel, Eradan, and Farin arrived. Outnumbered, Agandaûr fled on a Fell beast. Despite being pursued by the Great Eagle Beleram, Agandaûr used his sorcery to blast the Eagle with lightning, therefore escaping.
Agandaûr took no part in the gathering of orcs in the Ettenmoors, but he was mentioned as the one who corrupted the Stone giant Bargrisar.
Agandaûr was also revealed by Radagast the wizard to be recruiting the dragon Urgost of the Grey Mountains. Urgost told Agandaûr he'd consider his offer in his own time. Before leaving, Agandaûr told the dragon it would be wise not to defy Sauron, and that he'd leave behind some warriors just in case. Afterward, Agandaûr plotted and unleashed an attack on the Dwarven stronghold of Nordinbad.
After the siege of Nordinbad, Eradan, Andriel and Farin headed for Agandaûr's lair of Carn Dûm, the former capital of Angmar. Agandaûr battled the three heroes, and lead them to the bridge of the citadel. There, Agandaûr used his mastery of sorcery to destroy the trio, but failed. As he dies, he asked for his master's help, though at the same moment, Frodo Baggins had destroyed the One Ring. Instead, he disintegrated and the only thing left was his helmet. With Agandaûr's death, Sauron's forces in the North were vanquished, and Angmar was all but destroyed.
