Year ascended to the throne
Draugluin was the first werewolf to be bred by Morgoth during the First Age of Middle-earth.
Draugluin was bred from the
Wolves and inhabited with an evil spirit sent by Morgoth himself, Draugluin was a dreadful, old, and evil abomination and was the lord and sire of all werewolves of Beleriand, and dwelt with his master Sauron in Tol-in-Gaurhoth, the former watchtower of Finrod Felagund.
Draugluin was slain by
Huan during the Quest for the Silmaril after a long battle, and Beren and Lúthien used his pelt to sneak into Angband.
Draugluin was the sire of
Carcharoth and many other werewolves. It is probable the Wargs of the Third Age and the White Wolves were descended from him, as these wolves could speak, suggesting they had Fëar.
Draugluin means "Blue wolf" in Sindarin, from draug ("wolf") and luin ("blue"). Drauglir was an earlier form of the name.
