Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
Peter Jackson`s The Hobbit Trilogy Edit
He served Azog the Defiler as a Warg Rider and scout in his army. He was Yazneg`s third-in-command along with Fimbul. He had a brown Warg and looked similar to Gothmog`s Orc Underling. Ragash hunted Thorin`s company under Yazneg and Fimbul, and witnessed Azog`s feeding Yazneg to the Wargs. Azog, Fimbul and Ragash later chased the dwarves to a small cliff edge, forcing them to climb into the trees. However, the wizard, Gandalf, lit some pinecones on fire and through them at the wargs, killing a few of them. When Bilbo saved Thorin, Ragash and Fimbul attacked him. However, the Eagles attacked the orcs and threw many of the Warg riders off the cliff. Ragash, along with Fimbul and Azog, escaped.
He later helped Bolg track the Dwarves, along with Fimbul. They tracked them through Mirkwood to a river outside the forest. He participated in the battle that took place here, killing several Elves. In Lake-town, he fought Legolas along with Bolg and Fimbul, with Fimbul being decapitated in the battle. Ragash, however, escaped with Bolg to Gundabad. He later informed Azog that the orc armies were ready to attack the Lonely Mountain at dawn, and that the attack would be sudden and swift. Ragash fought in the Battle of the Five Armies, leading the attack in Dale. In the extended edition of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, he was killed by Bard the Bowman.
