Ufthak was a Mordor Orc serving in the Tower of Cirith Ungol.




At some undermined time while with a band of fellow Orcs including Shagrat, Ufthak got lost in the tunnels and was caught by Shelob, poisoned and hung up in a corner. When the others found him, he was still alive and awake but did nothing to help him, out of fear of what would happen if they interfered with her work.[1]


Ufthak in the Black Speech meant "Ugly Faced".[citation needed]
