Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
Peter Jackson`s The Hobbit Trilogy Edit
Ragash was probably an orc from Moria and may have been present at the Battle of Azanulbizar. He served Azog the Defiler as a Warg Rider and scout in his band of Moria Orcs. He was Yazneg`s third-in-command along with Fimbul. He had a brown Warg. 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.
Instead of going to hunt the dwarf company, Ragash remained at Dol Guldur and witnessed the arrival of his fellow Guldur Orcs to help their master. 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. He died sometime during the battle, but it remains unknown who killed him or when did he die.
